Ground Freight

Our services include:

Expedited Drayage: In which freight containers are transported in the shortest amount of time possible. Often used for time-sensitive shipments.

FTL (full truckload freight)

FTL shipping is commonly used for large shipments that require taking up the entire truck, or at least close to it. With FTL, your freight is the only freight moving on an individual truck so you can reserve the truck with its full capacity even if you don’t require the entire available space. The benefit of FTL is that you won’t have to worry about your goods changing hands at any time or your goods being stuck with other companies’ products.

LTL (less-than-truckload)

LTL is when multiple shippers’ freight is on the same trailer. Several LTL shipments are combined into one truck to fill it as near to capacity as possible. LTL is usually beneficial for the shipping needs of small businesses.

Shuttle Drayage

Pier Drayage
