Dedicated shipping gives you more capacity

Dedicated shipping provides contracted, consistent capacity for your shipping needs, giving you all the benefits of a private fleet — ready capacity, flexibility and more — without all the hassles of liability, risk, driver hiring and training.

A custom dedicated transportation service could deliver big ROI if you:

  • Need guaranteed capacity for everyday moves and additional freight capacity for seasonal surges.
  • Want to avoid managing the ever-changing regulations and requirements of fleet operations. 
  • Require unique or specialty fleet equipment and delivery techniques. 
  • Have tight delivery windows with high-value or temperature-sensitive freight.
  • Desire a strategic relationship to develop shipping solutions and evolve them as conditions change.
  • Are looking for greater shipment predictability and more consistent pricing.
