I wanted you to hear this, as you have very good people working for you, and I will not hesitate to recommend Universal Cargo.

Trucking Freight Services

Does your company need to haul freight over long distances? While it may seem simple enough to find a trucking company, there are thousands of carrier options and lots of headache-inducing logistics, from dealing with customs to billing and more. Not only that, but large freight loads present safety concerns that require a skilled driver and properly secured goods. With all these things to think about, using a freight forwarder as your middleman will save you time, energy and money.

At Universal Cargo, we can find the right trucking freight services for your business. We help with trucking in all kinds of industries, including furniture, electronics, medical equipment, machinery, textile/fashion and more. We also use popular ports like Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta and others. Whether you need a less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier or a full truckload (FTL) carrier, we can handle your trucking needs with a variety of services.

Port to Warehouse Shipping

When it comes to getting cargo from a port to a warehouse, trucks are a great option. The truck can pull right up, whereas trains or planes often require an extra step to get the freight loaded. Moreover, ports are equipped with machines that can pick up the containers or pallets and put them directly on the truck. That way, the containers don’t need to be unloaded and then reloaded. The shipping process can go much faster as a result.

Domestic U.S. Freight Trucking Services

Within the U.S., we can help get your freight across the coasts and everywhere in between, safely and on time. We’ll stay in close contact with the truck driver and monitor their progress on the route using GPS. If weather-related issues occur, we’ll help find alternate routes and ensure that you’re kept up-to-date on where your freight is located and when it will be delivered. In addition, we can handle everything from scheduling pickup and delivery to keeping track of all of the billing and paperwork from the carrier.

We also know what kind of carriers will get your freight where it needs to go as quickly as possible and which ones cover the necessary areas. With differences in truck sizes and coverage areas, these are examples of the logistical points that can be time-consuming when you don’t have long-established relationships with carriers and know the ins and outs of the industry.

North American Freight Trucking Services

We can get your freight across the country, but that’s not all — we can get it across North America. We have trucking partners that enable us to transport shipments from Mexico to the U.S. and from Canada to the U.S. Just like our domestic services, we’ll handle all business logistics with the carrier directly so that you don’t have to, taking care of everything from scheduling to paperwork and more.

Let Universal Cargo do the work for you to ensure that your imports and exports get from point A to point B seamlessly. Contact us about your freight trucking needs today, or request a free quote and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
