Full truckload service

Full truckload (FTL) is ideal when a freight consignment surpasses 5,000 to 10,000 pounds, depending on the goods being transported. It is also best suited for freights that are unpackaged or may need cooling, climate control, flatbeds, or other exceptional accommodation for oversized or bulky consignments.

As your consignment is the only cargo moving in an individual truck, you have exclusivity to the whole truck and ideally are occupying the truckload.

You can reserve the truck with its full capacity even if you don’t have to fill up the whole available space. That way, you won’t have to worry about your commodities changing hands at any time or your goods getting stuck with other items.

FTL can be an expensive transportation option, however, it can be much faster than less-than-truckload (LTL) freight because it needs no truck transfers (such as unloading and reloading of your consignment).

Our well connected and experienced transport facilities enable us to provide full truckload services across all 48 states.
