When You Ship With JA Frate

Outside of our assets, our third-party logistics (3PL) brokerage, JA Nationwide, manages shipments throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Our JA Frate drivers are TSA-certified every year, which ensures airport shipments make it to their flights on-time.

Each driver also has their HAZMAT endorsements within 90 days of joining our team. This allows us to schedule hazardous shipments more efficiently without needing to sort through drivers’ endorsements.

Alongside our transportation services, we also offer full distribution, fulfillment and warehousing services in Illinois through JA Logistics.

What We Provide

Our over 99% on-time rate protects you and your customers from lengthy delays. We track shipment exceptions daily so that we can proactively avoid any service disruptions, such as severe weather or a consignee unexpectedly closing early.

And if a service failure occurs, our quality improvement team will go over what happened and how we can improve at the next weekly team meeting.

We guarantee next day delivery for the following areas:

  • Chicago, Illinois and its suburbs
  • Rockford, Illinois
  • Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin
  • Hammond, Indiana

And if it doesn’t deliver by 5pm, it’s free!*
