Helpful Shipping Information

When you call us or order online, having this information ready beforehand helps us speed your shipment on its way:

  • Number of pallets: This narrows down the types of vehicles that work for your shipment.
  • Pallet dimensions: Is your shipment all one pallet size or are there multiple sizes?
  • Product/commodity: Is any special handling needed? Is it temperature-controlled, or does it include hazardous materials?
  • Total shipment weight: This is inclusive of pallets and packing material. This data is helpful, if you know it—but it's not a problem if you don’t. 
  • Shipment value: This determines the level of cargo insurance required and possibly if hand-carry courier service or increased security are needed.
  • Origin and destination: We’ll need to know Point A and Point B.
  • Level of service: Ground expedite or otherwise, we will determine the level of service based on your needed delivery date and recommend options accordingly.

Trusted by Our Most Valuable Partners

Cargo Vans

The average cargo van can carry two standard pallets up to 2,000 pounds. They generally do not have liftgates, and their beds are not shipping dock height.

However, they do move easily through traffic and fit in loading areas that larger trucks cannot, making them perfect for smaller ground expedite shipments.


Sprinter Vans

Sprinter vans can typically carry between 1-4 standard pallets of freight very efficiently, up to about 3,500 pounds, due to their interior width. Their volume is also effective for loose or unpalletized freight. If it fits, it ships. Because there is no additional handling in transit, this allows stacking to the vehicle’s ceiling, if necessary. Sprinter van cargo space is easily loaded or unloaded either by hand or forklift, but its bed is not shipping dock height. Your dedicated expeditor will take these factors into account when determining if a Sprinter van is the right choice for you.

Straight Trucks

Like the other vehicles detailed here, straight trucks (also called box trucks) are built to accommodate the most common type of freight and more. They have large rectangular cargo areas for shipping, come in a variety of lengths and heights, and carry 10 standard pallets and up to 12,500 pounds. Perfect for larger loads and longer distances, many straight trucks often do have power liftgates and are shipping dock height, making them a versatile ground expedite option.


Tractor Trailers

When you absolutely need heavy freight moving capability, nothing beats a tractor trailer. Able to fit 26 standard pallets and up to 45,000 pounds, these trucks can carry a heavy load for same day service or for the long haul. Expedited teams are a great option for regional and cross-country distances. For a ground expedite service solution, a team of two drivers keeps the truck moving around the clock. When one driver runs out of hours, another driver in the cab immediately takes over so your shipment never stops.
