Lone Star Logistics serves a broad range of industries since our founding. With origins in Flatbeds, Step Decks, Gooseneck, and hot shots logistics, we quickly expanded our service area to include other markets with challenging logistics needs. From manufacturing and retail to agriculture and automotive, among others, we have helped clients in nearly every industry increase performance and reduce costs with Lone Star Logistics procedures and our 3PL product suite.
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 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.
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!
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:
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.
