You're in the driver's seat. We help you accelerate.
High-Touch Logistics Services
Our UniGroup’s Logistics brand excels at high-touch, white glove supply chain solutions that other logistics providers can’t offer. Our precision and expertise in complex, labor-intensive logistic services are second to none.
Driver and Labor Solutions
UniGroup has a driver recruiting group to help our agents meet their capacity needs. We nationally source leads from a variety of industry-leading websites and social media avenues. Our team supports your agency’s recruiting efforts by making initial contact on your behalf, selling to your specific job, and helping you to qualify drivers. Finally, you’re able to conduct further interviews and make the final decision whether you’ll extend an offer.
UniGroup offers agents a Planning and Dispatch Program that provides three main benefits: a holistic approach to hauling support management, a lower cost dispatch solution for small-to-midsize agents, and an optional van operator support service. All agents are welcome to enroll in the program for one month or several, depending on their needs.
Through the UniGroup Logistics Platform, with technology licensed by our trusted vendor Rose Rocket, Inc., UniGroup provides agents with access to a logistics transportation management system that allows for connectivity and collaboration at all levels: agent to agent, driver, UniGroup business teams, customer and other network service providers.
This advanced technology, through a streamlined single platform, optimizes efficiency in order communication by providing real-time order updates, tracking and tracing abilities, electronic proof of delivery and much more.
Marketing and Public Relations
UniGroup understands that to grow your business effectively, marketing efforts must focus on, and stay ahead of, digital innovations and modern technologies. Our marketing team has the tools, platforms and resources and our agents can access these resources to aid their marketing and public relations efforts to attract and win new business.
Through consistent and carefully planned public relations initiatives, we continue to bolster our brands’ visibility and top-of-mind awareness. UniGroup provides strong promotional support for agents on both local and national levels.
Procurement and Purchasing
The UniGroup procurement and purchasing team consistently works to find innovative programs, evaluate and improve existing programs, and develop efficiency protocols that not only save money by controlling spending but bring operational value to the UniGroup system.
In 2019, the procurement team began tackling areas benefitting both UniGroup and its agents. Savings have already been realized in areas such as multi-purpose copiers, IT equipment, travel, fuel, packing and carton supplies
