Full Truckload Shipments (FTL)

Shipping a full truckload (FTL) provides more options for your cargo. Shipping FTL from origin to destination is the most time and cost efficient way to move a large amount of cargo. Your goods remains with a dedicated trailer, meaning there is no need to consolidate with other cargo. FTL options for large shipments may include specialized equipment such as air ride, removable goose-neck flatbed, heavy haul trucking, and refrigerated trucks.

As a rule of thumb, FTL shipments normally range from 15,000 pounds to 45,000 pounds. The pricing for FTL shipping is based on a rate per mile cost with a minimum charge per load. It is important to deal with an industry leader who understands and can guide you through The National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) standard. All trucked commodities are classified separately based on density, handling, storability, and liability.

Less than Truckload Shipping (LTL)

Less than truckload refers to cargo that travels on the same truck as other shipments. Pricing for LTL shipments is based on current rates, tariffs, discounts, lanes, class, weight and surcharges. We offer quick transit times for both LTL and FTL.

Refrigerated and Oversized Cargo

Our ground freight shipping options include refrigerated containers (reefers) and flatbed trucks for special handling of oversized/overweight cargo such as large machines or heavy equipment. Flatbed trucking services are available for both full truckload (FTL) and less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments.

Rail Freight Transport

We also offer rail freight services throughout North America. Shipping cargo via railroad is similar to a full truckload (FTL) door-to-door shipment. As an example, a rail container is delivered by truck to the shipper’s dock for loading. The container is then transported by truck to the nearest rail service center. The shipment safely travels via rail to the closest rail ramp where the container is transferred to a truck one more time and driven to its final destination.

Rail transportation has the advantage of improving loss prevention and cargo damages, but it should only be utilized if your business does not have a time sensitive delivery.
