Truckload and FTL Solutions

Finding reliable ways to use Truckload shipping can be challenging. First, find a carrier that can work with your scheduling, can ship your products, and provide solutions for both LTL and FTL shipments. We work to find the most effective carrier for you based on your shipping needs to ensure efficiency and space for your products and goods.

Truckloads are typically implemented for large freight shipments and if you expect to use most of the space available for each shipment, this is an ideal option, as this is very cost-effective. Truckload shipping also saves time because your shipment will not be transferred from one truck to another. This truckload carrier will be the one shipping your products from departure to arrival. There are many styles of truckloads that your products will dictate. There are dry vans, flatbeds, and refrigeration available for your product needs.

LTL/Less Than Truckload Solutions

LTL or Less Than Truckload shipping is for the transportation of relatively small freight. This freight weighs less than 150 lbs. LTL can cost more than FTL, but if you won’t use a full truckload, LTL is the best option. There are a wide variety of LTL carriers including companies such as FedEx. For your products and LTL shipments, you won’t have to wait for a full truckload worth of products to ship, and this is important if you have time-sensitive product deliveries. However, a single LTL shipment will take longer than a single FTL shipment.

Many LTL shipments depend on the shipping network. Some LTL shipping networks can take up to 10 days. While others will have your freight delivered the next day. This is where TKO Logistics identifies your shipping needs and matches you with an LTL carrier that best suits your time frame and your goals.

Intermodal Solutions

For intermodal freight transportation, TKO Logistics has you covered. Intermodal freight transportation is the use of two modes of freight to transport your goods or products. An example of intermodal would be a truck delivering your products to the rail. Then they transport your products to their next or final destination. Using intermodal for transporting your goods and products offers multiple benefits such as lower costs because of the railway system requiring less fuel to transport your goods. The railways in North America make it possible to ship goods from the East Coast to the West Coast.

Intermodal is a great option for those shipping multiple LTL shipments to the same destination multiple times in the week. The team here at TKO Logistics will first determine solutions for your product needs in order to identify the most efficient and cost-effective methods to get your products to their destination.
