ABOUT US

BKS Group LLC has the highest quality of dispatching solutions for our owner operators and we concentrate on booking loads in their favor.

BKS has an ongoing demand for Owner Operators with a minimum of 1 year of experience and their own semi-trucks, also known as tractor trailers or 18 wheelers, to work under our authority.

 

We have the same goals: to keep you loaded all the time with the best load rates. We are a fast-growing family owned trucking company. We know what truckers want, need, and the obstacles they face every day. You tell us your driving and home time preferences and we do our best to suit you. We deal with the bureaucracy, so you don’t have to. We fight for you and we support you so you can perform to the best of your ability and succeed consistently.

 

BKS believes in safety and teamwork! Owner operators are not our employees, they’re our partners and that means mutual benefit, mutual profit, and mutual respect. You and your dispatcher will get to know each other. Just tell your dispatcher your driving preferences and they’ll do their best to suit you.
 

Our Process

we understand your requirements and and do the heavy lifting for you

1

Order Tender

The process starts when a business (shipper) calls or emails an order for pickup. We collect all necessary information when tendering freight, no matter if it is a regularly scheduled shipment, or a special order or event. Besides basic location and contact information, we collect special packing or handling instructions, compliance standards, equipment, and consignee preferences.

2

Freight Scheduling

All of the information previously collected is then entered into our freight management system so we can secure qualified transportation by selling and then booking, a skilled carrier on the order.

2.5

Confirm with Carrier

  • Appropriate equipment that is clean and up-to-date
  • A current, valid license
  • The required amounts of cargo and liability insurance coverage
  • Ability to handle any special needs (i.e. driver assist, team transit, etc.)
  • A trailer that won’t be carrying any potential contaminants
  • Committed to the mandatory timeline, with required drivable hours available.

3

Dispatch

At the scheduled pickup we personally connect with the driver, doublechecking all of their important information (name, trailer type, truck #, trailer #, cell phone, and current empty location), and reiterates handling requirements. Drivers are also given pick-up information.

4

Loading

We stay in contact with the carrier during the entire process of loading. This is not considered complete until all freight has been put on the trailer, the trailer has been shut, in some cases sealed, and the carrier has signed the shipper’s Bill of Lading (BOL), accepting possession and liability of the freight.

 

5

Transit

We will stay in contact with the driver throughout transit of the load. Using GPS tracking technologies, we can maintain the location of the shipment to delivery. Regular check-in calls with the carrier also help to ensure everything is on track and appointment times will be met. We will often provide the carrier with driving directions, or act as a liaison to communicate any hurdles along the way, such as traffic or weather delays.

Unloading & Delivery

6

Upon arrival, the driver must record the time in case there is a problem with detention – if the carrier waits beyond a certain time limit, they can be charged.

Once unloaded, the consignee signs the Bill of Lading, noting any overage, shortages, or damages (OS&D), and what time loading was completed, then accepts possession of the  product.

We take the carrier’s paperwork (Invoice, Proof Of Delivery (POD), etc.) to invoice the shipper and pay the carrier.

7

Billing

Once we receive the carrier’s invoice, and necessary paperwork for the shipper, they are ready to bill and an invoice is generated.

Important transportation paperwork includes:

  • Lumper Receipts
  • Driver Work Receipts
  • POD/BOL
  • Rate Confirmation
