ADVANTAGES OF EXPEDITED TRUCKING VS. FULL TRUCKLOAD OR LTL?
Exclusivity of the truck is key for a successful trip. The utilization of Expedited Trucking allows you to avoid issues that can arise when multiple shippers are combining freight in the same truck. It also allows for long lengths of driving. Unlike Truckload where drivers are made to rest and/or swap out trailers along a route or unlike LTL where your freight may hit five docks before delivering, Expedite keeps your freight moving. With Expedite, security is also key, as your freight is protected every mile of the drive!
