Our Freight Services


If you have a shipment that’s less than 15,000 pounds, LTL, or Less Than Load, shipping might be for you. By sharing a truck with other shippers and only paying for the space you need, LTL is a cost-effective option for companies sending smaller loads. Let our team help you find the right solution.


FTL, or Full Truck Load, shipping is ideal for those shipping larger loads or companies that require exclusive use, less handling, or faster delivery of their shipment. Our team can consult on this and other options for your project.

Our Freight Services Process

Mail.dat / Shipping Details

Our logistics process begins with the detailed organization of your mailing data into Mail.dat files. This step ensures every aspect of your shipment, from size and weight to destination, is accurately recorded for seamless processing and delivery.

Mail Plan Created / Shipping Estimate

Once your mail plan is formulated, we provide a detailed shipping estimate. This gives you a clear view of the logistical efforts and costs involved in your mailing project, laying the groundwork for efficient execution.

Your approval is paramount in our process. We ensure that every detail of the proposed freight plan meets your requirements, moving forward only when you are completely satisfied.
