Are you looking for a reliable and cost-effective way to transport your company’s goods or equipment across the country? Look no further than Beitler Logistics Services.
As a trusted leader in third-party logistics (3PL), Beitler has a vast network of resources and carriers at your disposal. With a wide range of truckload types to choose from, we can help you find the most efficient, safe, and cost-effective solution for your company’s shipping needs.
Why Differing Truckload Types Matter
There’s a near-endless amount of variety in the shipping needs of our customers here at Beitler Logistics Services. Every company is different; therefore, every truckload will have specific needs. That’s why Beitler offers a range of truckload types, each specialized in a different way to suit your business.
Here are just a handful of the options we offer in truckload types:
Full Truckload (FTL) Shipping
The full truckload (FTL) is the original truck loading option, where a single truck is used to transport a full load of goods from one location to another.
While dozens of other, more specialized options are available with Beitler Logistics Services, full truckloads are still the most cost-effective and efficient option for many businesses. Aside from posing the fewest potential complications, the main benefit of FTL shipping is the money it can save you by shipping large quantities of goods in a single trip.
However, not all companies can make a single shipment work for their purposes. Luckily, Beitler’s vast network of resources offers a variety of alternatives.
Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) Shipping
If your company isn’t the kind that can muster a full truckload in one go, this may be the perfect solution for you. Less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping takes the space of a full truckload and splits it between multiple groups of shipments, making it the most optimal of our truckload types for smaller operations.
If your business tends to have smaller shipments that do not fill up an entire truck, LTL shipping may be an ideal choice. In this type of shipping, multiple smaller shipments are consolidated onto a single truck, which helps to lower the cost of transportation for each business involved.
Over the Road (OTR) Shipping
If yours is the kind of business that requires shipments over long, sprawling distances, you’re far from the only one. Beitler Logistics Services has been servicing businesses across the United States for more than a hundred years, and our range of operations has grown to span the entire nation, even reaching into Canada.
Our over-the-road (OTR) shipping option is designed to cover large distances. If you expect your company’s next shipment to reach multiple states or even the entire country, you may want to ask about our OTR shipping.
Sometimes money isn’t the only resource on the line when it comes to efficient transportation. When time is of the essence, expedited shipping can mean the difference between a sale and a missed opportunity.
Expedited truckload shipments are prioritized over other shipments, which means they are delivered faster than other truckload types. Among Beitler’s extensive selection of truckload types, expedited shipping is the option built for speed.
If you have time-sensitive cargo that needs to be delivered quickly, whether it be for the quality of the product or the needs of the customer, ask how our expedited shipping option can make it happen ASAP. Our operations center is available to you twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
Aside from simple shipping time, there are plenty of other environmental factors a shipment might depend on. Some products simply won’t survive the trip unless stored in a specific way during transit.
If you are shipping perishable goods or other items that require a specific temperature range, our temperature-controlled shipping is the obvious solution. Beitler’s shipping operations have access to a wide variety of equipment, including trucks equipped with special refrigeration units or heating systems to ensure that your sensitive cargo is kept at the perfect temperature throughout the journey.
