Less than Truckload (LTL)
This is the most common method of shipping today for smaller palletized/crated shipments. Less than truckloads (or LTL) range from 100 lbs. to 10000 lbs. LTL shipping also offers flexible service requirements such as lift/tail gate, appointment times, hazardous/dangerous goods, residential, oversize, inside pickup/delivery, limited access, etc. This is a very economical way to ship as freight is consolidated to take advantage of volume of scale and in return offer competitive pricing.

The flatbed is one of the most versatile trailers for transporting freight. Flatbed trailers normally transport cargo that is larger or wider, freight that requires to be loaded by a crane, or from the side with a forklift. The flexibility of flatbeds is great for hauling construction materials, machinery, tools, components and equipment. In addition to large single items, flatbed trailers are often used for transporting large quantities of stackable or well-wrapped products. Its versatility offers many loading and unloading options. Freight moving on a flatbed will typically be tarped.
Step deck trailers offer all the benefits of a flat bed with the added advantage of being able to transport cargo that is taller. The lower deck of the trailer will ensure that your freight will not exceed height limitations. This can also be achieved with a low boy trailer. Low boy trailers are typically the lowest trailers and will allow your tall shipments to stay within legal limits during transport. When a load needs to be closer to the ground to accommodate forklift loading and unloading, step decks or drop deck trailers are the best equipment for the job.
Removable gooseneck (RGN) refers to trailers with very low decks that can be used for hauling freight that can be driven onto a trailer. The trailer will detach away from the trailer's lower deck allowing the cargo to be driven on or off. These trailers also allow for large and tall shipments to be transported within limits. These trailers can be up to 20+ axels and carry up to 150000 pounds.
Expedited freight refers to time-critical shipments in which freight has to be delivered quickly. Expedited freight is most often transported by road or air.
