We move Full Truckloads on Dry Van, Flatbed, Over Dimensional, Rail, and Refrigerated Trailers across the United States, Mexico and Canada. By speaking directly with our driver on each load, all accurate critical information is communicated. We do this on every shipment, every day. Expedited “Team Service” and additional cargo insurance available for high value shipments.
We handle standard flatbed shipments across all commodities throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. This also includes Stepdeck, Curtain Van and Conestoga trailers. Every load is unique. Clear communication with the driver about the weight, commodity and tarping requirements is of critical importance to us on every load we move.
We move shipments in Full Truckload and Less Than Truckload quantities. Expedited “Team Service” and additional cargo insurance available for high value shipments. For specific trailer dimensions and availability, please see our types of flatbed trailers.
Permits Required? Shipments that require Specialized Equipment, Permits, Route Surveys and Pilot Cars are a large segment of our business. We carefully review all Over-Dimensional requests to coordinate that equipment, driver hours, and load detail are viable. Navigating the restrictions involved and the permits needed can be a bit overwhelming. Let us do that for you. From large machinery to building forms for new construction sites, we have the team, capability and experience to handle any move.

Less Than a Truckload
We provide a full range of Less Than Truckload services. We move partial shipments every day via Van, Flatbed, Over-Dimensional, and Refrigerated equipment. We move LTL shipments in one of two ways:
LTL Carrier Partners - We leverage our freight volume, market position and long-term relationships with regional and national LTL carriers to get the optimum combination of price and service.
Consolidations - Consolidations on Truckload Carriers is our preferred method of moving partial shipments. By removing freight classification and multiple terminal handling we streamline communication, enhance service, and reduce the likelihood of damage.
While the majority of partial shipments are between 4-8 pallets, we handle smaller lots as well. Our smallest shipment to date was a satellite phone expedited by air then hand-delivered to the home of a company executive. As with all of our services we offer Expedited LTL. If you have an urgent shipment, we can find a way to move it quickly.
Whether it’s across town or across the country, when your shipment timeline suddenly jumps from standard to "hot," we can expedite shipments of all quantities via Hot Shot Service, Team Drivers over the road and Air. For your urgent needs, call one of our offices and ask for customer service.
Arranging the pickup and delivery of various kinds of temperature controlled foods and other products has been a staple of our company since we opened our doors in 1990. We handle shipments requiring climate control on refrigerated or heated equipment every day, and have experience with the intricacies surrounding the Food Safety Modernization Act as well as protecting other items from freezing during winter months. Ancillary services such as lumper, driver assist, and pallet exchange are also available.
Our core competency is providing customized supply chain solutions for our customers, from single shipment spot moves to full-function freight management and reporting. We would be happy to provide a supply chain analysis for your network using our CAI Logistics Process. Please call one of our offices and ask for Sales.
