Less than Truck Load (LTL)

Your challenge

You have shipments that are

  • arranged on pallets and range anywhere from 150
    to 10,000 pounds, and
  • need to go somewhere in the U.S., Canada or Mexico.

Our solution for you

We work with all the leading LTL networks in North America. We check all our transportation partners regarding insurance, background checks of drivers, accidents, etc. Since we are an important partner of these companies, they give us competitive rates, which we will pass on to you.

Being an asset-light broker enables us to not have to worry about the utilization of a certain truck, and we can look exclusively on your freight. We are always there for you in case you should need us. If you require specialized equipment (oversized/overweight, dry van, flatbed) or express service, we will help you, too.&nb

Intermodal

Your challenge

You have shipments with the following criteria:

  • They need to be transported over a long distance (ideally >400 miles)
  • They are of any weight
  • They are not very time sensitive

Our solution for you

In order to save costs for you we suggest an intermodal solution: for most of the journey your shipment will be transported via railroad. We are one of the few nationwide intermodal marketing companies (IMC), which allows us direct access to all six class 1 railroad companies in the US and Canada. Needless to say, your shipments will be transported door-to-door. A trusted trucking partner (checked regarding insurance, background checks of drivers, accidents, etc.) will pick it up at your doorstep and deliver it to the destination.

Transportation management

Your challenge

Every day you have a large number of shipments in different weight categories that need to go to various destinations across North America. In such a situation it is difficult to maintain an overview, and logistics costs can skyrocket.

Our solution for you

Our customized transportation management services allow you to outsource and centralize all or a portion of your logistical requirements. We can serve as your whole transportation department or augment significant portions of your internal operations, fine-tuning both performance and cost. As a case in point, we will make transparent to you how much you can save if you decide to postpone a few shipments in order to combine them with other shipments. Furthermore, we will provide you with enhanced shipment visibility for better control.
