Flatbed Transportation

Flatbed Trucking is for cargo that may not require the enclosure of a dry van. It normally can’t be loaded or unloaded from a dock or can’t fit within the dimensions of a standard truck trailer. Flatbed hauling is necessary for oversized or irregular shaped cargo since the flat surface allows for easy loading and unloading. Examples of items that would be hauled are lumber, pallet freight, steel, and construction materials.

Step-Deck Transportation

Step-Deck Trucking carries tall cargo that exceeds the legal height limit if transported on a traditional Flatbed trailer. Transporting taller hauls on a Step-Deck truck prevents drivers from obtaining certain permits. Step-Deck trailers normally sit lower to the ground than a Flatbed trailer, so ideal items to haul would be equipment for agriculture or the military, various machinery, and tractors.

Over-The-Road Transportation

Our OTR (Over-The-Road) logistics services coordinates both expedited and LTL (Less-Than-Truckload or Partial) truck shipping across longer distances with benefits that include security, flexibility, and overall shipment safety. This type of trucking is perfect for accelerated shipments with a time-sensitive nature, cargo that may be of higher value or considered fragile.

Rail Transportation

Sometimes there is a need for more than trucking transportation. That’s why we provide additional logistic services such as rail transportation for various shipments and hauling needs. For example, Intermodal transit (the transport of one set of goods within a steel container between two or more modes of transportation) allows for free trade, lowered costs for consumers, and reduced environmental impacts. Other specified methods of rail transportation that we offer include Drayage, Door-to-Port, Door-to-Door, and Port-to-Door. We are currently coast-to-coast, but we plan on having sea transport services in 2023!

Specialty Cargo Transportation

We also have transportation services that encompass a variety of other industries that have specific shipment needs. Our team of professionals have the experience necessary for a full suite of transport types, such as:

Expedited Loads

When it comes to freight or commodities that need to be delivered quickly, look for our Expedited Transport service. No matter what you are shipping, we ensure your loads are handled in the most delicate manner and arrive at the specific, designated time, without the need to be reloaded. 

Tanker Transport

This trailer type ensures a safe and reliable transportation from the pick-up site to the delivery location for shipments with chemicals, liquids, gases, beverages, and dry or bulk goods as these may be considered more time sensitive.

Hazmat Commodities

Qualified Hazmat drivers are specifically trained in the procedures necessary for safe motor vehicle operation of Hazmat materials. Our skilled Hazmat drivers and their specialized equipment allow for the safe, secure, and reliable transport of cargo tanks that may carry flammable material (gas or liquid), explosives, radioactive or corrosive material, compressed or poisonous gas, oxidizers, and more.


This method of transportation is ideally suited for a variety of large freight loads that typically consists of dry bulk commodities such as corn, barley, wheat, fertilizer, gravel, cement, sand, rice, sugar, and more as it can discharge cargo from the bottom or sides of the trailer.

Dry Vans

While these trailers are not temperature controlled, they are suitable for transporting dry freight such as boxed items, dry retail goods, clothing, plastics, household supplies, palleted-materials, and other non-perishable items that aren’t considered time-sensitive.

Dump Trucks

Dumping Trucks (also known as Dump Trailers or Dump Lorry’s) are typically used for construction materials such as dirt, gravel, demolition waste, sand, and other debris. Their large tires and versatility are perfectly fit for difficult terrain in these construction-based environments.
