Managing supply chain logistics and critical shipments can be an enormous challenge. You may work with high-volume orders or complex shipments that necessitate multiple modes of transportation. What if you could partner with experienced third-party logistics (3PL) experts who will work through all logistical considerations for you to create fully customized transportation solutions?
Mulder Brothers Brokerage is a transportation brokerage services company with a long history of accommodating even the most unique and challenging requests. We make deliveries to diverse organizations that many companies do not, including businesses, warehouses, schools, hospitals, prisons, food banks, and trade shows. No matter your needs, Mulder Brothers can provide customized logistics solutions, partnering with you to develop a shipping plan that meets your individual timeline and budget.
How Customized Logistics Solutions Can Benefit Your Business
Whether you are a small business or a large enterprise, customized logistics solutions can simplify transportation operations and help you stay ahead of the competition.
Common Transportation Challenges
Transportation companies encounter numerous challenges while moving, storing, and delivering products. Sometimes the concern is a facility’s location or space limitations, as large trucks have difficulty navigating tight spaces and require manual unloading within a building. A facility’s operational procedures may also result in challenges, such as prison security policies that require background checks on personnel before they can make deliveries.
If your product is part of the cold chain and requires strict temperature control, you must adhere to FDA safety regulations and maintain constant temperatures both in the truck and in storage. For perishable items, your timeline is of particular importance as well to prevent product loss.
Capabilities of Our Customized Transportation Services
At Mulder Brothers, we understand that shipping and delivery logistics can be a complex and challenging undertaking. We aim to streamline the process by offering customized trucking and transportation services to best suit your needs. We have access to a fleet of temperature-controlled trucks through our partner company, Art Mulder & Sons Trucking (AMST), for trusted, frozen and refrigerated less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping, redelivery, warehousing, and cross-docking.
We also work with an extensive carrier network of final-mile delivery companies so that you benefit from flexible scheduling and nationwide routes. Our team can accommodate a broad spectrum of needs and delivery types, from fitting into tight locations that are inaccessible to full-sized trucks to hand deliveries and unloading, even directly into your freezer.
Benefits to Your Business
Using a brokerage company for customized logistics solutions offers you many advantages, including:
- Flexible scheduling and scalable operations that fit your specific needs. Traditional shipping often requires you to accept the established routes and schedules of the transportation company. This can be a problem if your needs change or you begin shipping to a new location. With a customized solution, you can work with a logistics provider to create a more efficient delivery plan.
- Ability to transport varying cargo types. This flexibility extends to cargo types, as well. Customized transportation solutions are capable of handling a variety of cargo types, regardless of their shape, size, weight, temperature requirements, etc. This versatility helps to streamline your supply chain and reduce unexpected delays.
- Affordability. Customized transportation services can also be budget-friendly. Such companies will help you make the most of your budget by determining the optimal delivery and routing solutions for your business.
- Happier customers. Timely product shipping and deliveries, as well as goods that arrive in the expected condition, lead to high customer satisfaction. This can result in repeat business and positive word-of-mouth recommendations and online reviews for your company.
Specialized Transportation Brokerage Services From Mulder Brothers
Managing the logistics of the entire transportation process on your own can be quite daunting, requiring excessive amounts of time and constant, tedious tracking.

As a smaller, family-owned firm, we at Mulder Brothers know our customers by name. Backed by AMST as well as local carrier partners, we have the flexibility to tailor routes and schedules to your needs, time frame, and budget.
We’ve been developing personalized transportation solutions since 2008 and thoroughly understand the complexities of the business. We offer both asset- and non-asset-based transportation services that include frozen and refrigerated transportation and warehousing, as well as cold chain logistics and consolidated shipments for the Walmart Consolidation Pool Program.
