Our partnerships with the best FTL trucking companies in North America places us amongst the most reliable and economical freight forwarders to help you move your commercial goods throughout Canada, USA and Mexico.
There are three main reasons why shippers choose Full Trailer Load (FTL) over LTL (Less than Truckload) :
● If the cargo being shipped occupies the space of an entire trailer (53-foot trailer or 48-foot trailer)
Under this scenario your only option is the FTL ground service. Also, when the cargo space exceeds more than half a trailer without filling it up completely, it might be more convenient to choose the FTL option unless there is a cheap LTL freight service available
● When the shipment is urgent.
The full trailer load (FTL) ground service guarantees you a fast transit time travelling directly from the pickup point to the delivery point, without any delays. This is what is known as a dedicated truck service.
● To minimize the risk of cargo loss or damage
When shipping valuable merchandise, it is of extreme importance to avoid cargo being damaged or lost. The full trailer load (FTL) option is the best choice since the cargo is only handled twice, during the loading and the unloading stage. In this manner your goods are much safer from potential loss or damage.
All our first-class carriers are C-TPAT certified and equipped with the latest technology to track and trace your shipments in real time. We understand the importance of knowing about the status or your cargo at every step of the way.
We make it our first priority to monitor your shipments and to keep you informed regularly.
Your cargo may require transportation in a temperature-controlled environment for which our company offers FTL “reefer” shipping services. Precise and detailed supervision is essential to ship perishable and fresh products such as fruits, vegetables, flowers or temperature sensitive medical and pharmaceutical products.
Our partnerships with the best Reefer Trucking Companies allow us to offer safe, secure, and efficient refrigerated FTL services.
Shipping to Mexico or from Mexico by ground can become very complex when your freight forwarder does not have the required experience.
During the border crossing stage your cargo will be handed over to the carrier’s counterpart in in the destination country. Any wrong handling at this point can cause unnecessary delays and monetary losses. Therefore choosing an expert on the Mexico USA cross-border transportation is very important.
Latin American Cargo (LAC) has the know-how to coordinate and simplify the process to ensure that your cargo moves smoothly and safely when offering you door to door shipping between USA, Mexico and Canada.
When shipping FTL to Mexico or from Mexico, we offer two different services:
● Direct Service without Transloading:
For some clients, preventing the risk of damage is of an utmost concern. As such, this method of shipping means that the trailer that is loaded at the point of origin is the same trailer that arrives at the destination. Lack of handling minimizes the risk of damage, especially for cargo that is sensitive to unnecessary handling.
● Service with Transloading:
With this method, the cargo is loaded onto a Canadian or American trailer for the trip to Mexico. Once the cargo reaches the USA-Mexico border, it is then transloaded onto a Mexican trailer. The main advantage of transloading your freight is that we can offer more alternatives for pickup as there are not as many FTL carriers that go all the way into Mexico.
