partner Carrier Benefits

Our Background

Our roots are in transportation! Keller Trucking started over 40 years and has expanded throughout the logistics industry. As a transportation broker, we provide our customers and carriers a full suite of solutions focused on technology. We use tools like project44 and Parade to seamlessly match our customers lanes to our partner carriers based on the carriers geographic preferences.

By providing our carriers consistent lanes from our customers, carriers have access to lanes that move at the year round rates and intervals, keeping your trucks moving!

project44 Tracking

project44 gives our customers peace of mind with real-time visibility into where their freight is.  It also reduces the amount of check calls made by 75%.  project44 can use your ELD, API into your TMS, or your drivers’ phones for tracking – tracking begins 90 minutes before scheduled pickup and stops after leaving the geofence of the receiver, so we only have visibility into our load.  Not to mention, you earn rewards points for every load successfully tracked in project44!

Parade

Parade is more than just a private load board for all of our available freight, where you can quote and book without talking to anyone.  We can set up internal rules to route certain freight just to preferred carriers who can book before anyone else.  Parade utilizes AI and machine learning to understand what loads you may be interested in, and sends you targeted lanes that may match your freight needs.  And once again, when you use Parade’s “Book Now” feature you earn rewards points!

Carrier Requirements:

    Providing our customers with safe and reliable carriers is a top priority for the Carrier Procurement team. To ensure we provide quality carrier options, we’ve set minimum qualifications for all our carriers:

    • At least 3 months authority with approved or active authority status
    • No conditional carriers

    Partner Carrier Rewards Program Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I sign up for Keller Carrier Rewards without signing up for Parade or ACH settlements?

    No, part of being a partner we are going to reward is doing things that make doing business easy.  ACH allows us to process payment to you efficiently and with less cost, and Parade gives you visibility into all available loads where you can book digitally.  These things create efficiency and scale for us, and is necessary to sign up for our rewards program

    How will I be notified about how many points I’ve earned, and when I reach any rewards tiers?

    Monthly, the contact used to sign up for Keller Carrier Rewards will receive an email with points earned for the month, total points earned in the last 12 months, and current tier status (if applicable).  In addition, once reaching a tier further instructions will be received on how to redeem the rewards earned at that tier

    Do points expire?

    Points accumulate on a previous 12 month roll.  If at any time during a 12 month span you reach any tier, you will qualify for those rewards.  Unless you reach a higher tier, you will remain in that tier for a minimum of 3 months.  After those 3 months, you need to have earned enough points in the previous 12 to still qualify for that tier or you no longer qualify

    How will the fuel discounts work, since we are not part of the Keller company?

    Once you qualify for one of our 2 levels of fuel discounts and want to take advantage of them, we will provide you with a credit application.  Upon approval, we will send as many QuikQ cards as requested and your company will be a sub-account under us.  All fuel pumped using those cards will be billed to you, just under our blanket discount umbrella.  With our own fleet of trucks and aggregating gallons with our best partner carriers, most times we will be able to provide you significant savings on your fuel spend
