LTL shipping is the perfect solution for moving loads weighing between 150 to 10,000 lbs or when shipping up to 10 pallets of cargo. You can benefit from our volume rate discount contract with the largest LTL Carriers in the industry. We have daily and weekly consolidations departing from every major city in the Nafta region.
There are two main reasons why shippers choose Less than Trailer Load (LTL) over Full Trailer Load (FTL):
● When shipping smaller orders
There is no need to use a full trailer load when your cargo is not large enough to fill up an entire truck.
● For Cost Efficiency
Since you are not using the entire space of the truck, our LTL shipping services allow you to pay only for the space you are using.
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 main 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 Refrigerated LTL Shipping solutions. 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 LTL Refrigerated Trucking Companies allow us to offer safe, secure, and efficient temperature-controlled services for your partial truckload shipping.

Shipping LTL freight requires that your merchandise be consolidated with other cargo. For most LTL shipments there is always a transloading operation that takes place at different terminals throughout the journey. This is why it is recommended to use pallets, skids or crates in order for your cargo to be protected from potential damage or loss.
Although these packing supplies are all made of wood, there are some differences which are important to consider before choosing between one another. Your decision will depend on the shipping method you will be using to move your freight.
Each shipment has a unique set of requirements, that is why our team of experts are available to assist you in the process of determining whether a pallet, skid or crate will better suit your needs.
We are proud to be part of some of the most prestigious associations in the industry.
