Consistent Freight Options
We recognize the importance of providing consistent freight for our alliance carriers. When working with Werner, we help keep trailers full and professional drivers moving with consistently awarded lanes, ad-hoc freight to fill any spot needs and access to available loads at the touch of a button through our digital freight platform, Werner Bridge. These opportunities create a stable business environment for our alliance carriers, providing ample room for growth as their businesses expand.

• Submit invoice and supporting documents via email, fax, USPS, UPS/FedEx
• EDI capable with indexed image transfer via FTP with sufficient volume

Quick Pay
• 1.5 percent service fee deducted from the total invoice
• Funds are available and released by check or ACH within five business days of receipt of invoice, POD, lumper receipts, etc.
• Submit invoice and supporting documents via email or fax only
