Dedicated Transportation Solutions


Shipping consistent route?

You have freight that need to be shipped to the same customer each week? What do you do? Dedicated transportation is ideal for this situation and others where freight is moved on a consistent route and needs either a committed pool of specialized equipment or has distinct freight handling requirements. It gives you access to the capacity you need, when you need it, and offers stable pricing and predictable delivery times. 

Benefits of using a dedicated fleet:

Assured capacity

Whether transporting dry goods or temperature-controlled shipments, dedicated transportation gives access to the right equipment, on the day and time it’s needed. For example, maybe a customer only accepts deliveries and pickups on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. With dedicated shipping, a truck will be available at that time, ready to accept or unload shipments. Dedicated shipping is also a solution for those who need drop-and-hook services, or for carriers who already have their own fleet but need certain equipment to accommodate specialized freight.

Shipment predictability

Using a dedicated fleet allows a shipper to regularly move freight on the same routes, which helps establish a steady flow of inbound and outbound shipments. Whether moving freight on local, regional or long-haul routes, when using dedicated trucking, shippers can stage loads to customers or to other locations, which frees up warehouse space, making for a more effective supply chain.

More consistent pricing

Our customers who choose dedicated trucking also see more consistent pricing. Many carriers offer lower rates for dedicated shipping due to the predictability of the shipments, the routes the freight will travel, and the backhaul assistance programs in place to reduce empty miles.
