hauling

Hauling is an economical way to move freight across the country. Hauling is also a mode of transportation used with international shipments, where trucking is the method used to move freight to and from airports and ocean ports. Ground hauling offers competitive advantages including lower rates and more flexibility, with the capacity to move everything from standard palletized shipments to large freight. 

 

From retail and pharmaceutical products to oversized freight and cold chain items, hauling is a reliable solution for trucking and distribution of freight of all kinds. Two main ground hauling options are available:  

Full truckload (FTL) shipping is ideal for freight that will fit onto a standard 53-foot trailer. Although dimensions vary, a standard truckload shipment typically consists of 24 or more pallets and weighs between 15,000 and 42,500 pounds. For hauling full truckload over the road, Trans Phos offers access to a diverse range of specialized equipment, solving a variety of logistical challenges. 

Less-than-truckload (LTL) hauling is used for freight that is larger than a parcel, but not large enough to fill an entire container or trailer. This type of freight often weighs between 150 and 20,000 pounds and travels over the road on smaller pup trailers. We utilize strategic routes, consolidate shipments from multiple customers along the way to lower your costs in the hauling process.


For those in need of guaranteed capacity for hauling freight along a consistent route, or to supplement an existing equipment and driver pool, dedicated hauling is the solution. High-value product shipping is designed for hauling expensive, sensitive or valuable freight using solutions that include enhanced security.
