Learn more about our door-to-door full truckload services and how they can fulfill your business needs.
What Is Full Truckload Service?
Full truckload (FTL) is a type of shipping method that involves one truck being responsible for a single shipment of goods from one point to another. Full truckload service providers often use specialized equipment to meet clients’ needs.
At C&M Transport, our full truckload services include specialized equipment, such as 24-foot and 53-foot dry vans and refrigerated units, capable of journeying to all states within the contiguous United States. These units are ideal for transporting a wide range of products safely and efficiently, including perishable goods and high-value items.
We are pleased to offer clients door-to-door single and team transit for all truckload services. C&M Transport also offers dedicated weekly milk run services to ensure your inventories are kept at a consistent level. A milk run is a delivery method used to transport mixed loads from various suppliers to a single customer. It is also a term used to describe a transportation route that features multiple stops along its route to its destination.
The Advantages of Full Truckload Services
Like any logistics solution, the decision to use full truckload services depends on the client’s needs. The advantages you can expect when you opt for full truckload services from C&M Transport include:
Since our full truckload services consist of only your shipment in our semi-trailers, drivers can go from point A to point B without needing to stop along the way. This results in faster transit times and your items being delivered sooner than with other means of shipping. This benefit can provide companies with enhanced flexibility that they can use to their advantage. Saving just one day in transit can make a huge difference.
Another benefit of our full truckload services is the reduced number of individuals who will be handling your shipment. Because your cargo will not need to be loaded and unloaded multiple times during transit, the risk of damage or other concerns is significantly decreased. This can be especially beneficial for companies that deal with sensitive goods.
Less Concern About Size and Weight
With other shipping methods, weight and size are a real worry for companies who need to transport larger items. Clients can benefit from our full truckload services as they will be much less encumbered by size and weight restrictions. Furthermore, with other methods of shipping, capacity can become very limited during peak freight seasons, making full truckload services that much more beneficial.
A More Cost-Effective Solution
At C&M Transport, rates for full truckload services are based on several factors, including distance and fuel costs. The weight of the cargo is no factor. Because of this, a full truckload service may be the most cost-effective solution for companies with heavier freight. Keeping transportation costs down may be crucial for small and medium-sized companies that are just starting or looking to expand their enterprises.
