Truck Freight Shipping

Full Truckload (FTL) or (TL) Freight Shipping Services

With our carrier network, we can fulfill any type of full truckload shipment of commerical or industrial cargo you may have.
 
FTL or TL is freight that weighs more than 8,000 pounds or a cargo load that takes up the majority of the space in a tractor trailer. Most FTL/TL loads are picked up and delivered by the same truck. Unlike an LTL load truck, a truck that delivers a FTL/TL load only has only one delivery location stop, making delivery time quicker than LTL shipping.
