Your #1 Choice In Freight Transportation

First choice logistics offers a reliable network of carriers that can quickly move freight throughout the continental US.

Expedited Ground

This is where the item will be sent via a faster service. Either via a courier service like FedEx or UPS or in some cases via the post office using a first class shipping rate or priority mail

Flatbed

A flatbed truck is either articulated or rigid. Its bodywork is just an entirely flat, level ‘bed’ with no sides or roof. This allows for quick and easy loading of goods, and consequently they are used to transport heavy loads that are not delicate or vulnerable to rain, and also for abnormal loads that require more space than is available on a closed body truck.

FTL - Full Truck Load

The shipment will take up an entire truck by itself. FTL shipments are typically used when there are ten or more palettes that need to ship

Hazmat Certified Drivers

Drivers with experience to safely transport materials deem to be hazardous

LTL  - Less than Truck Load

This is where the shipment utilizes a portion/ percentage of the actual truck size

Pallet Exchange

A program agreed upon by several shippers and receivers with each party assuming responsibility for the total inventory of pallets.  These parties exchange pallets on a one-for-one basis with each transaction recorded and documented.  The program provides cost savings in offloading time and time pressures on warehouse personnel.

Power Only

This refers to cases in which a trucker provides the tractor while the shipper supplies the trailer

Trailer Interchange

This is the process whereby a trucker switches trailers while traveling around the country in order to meet overall scheduling across the transport network.

Transportation Throughout Continental US

Transportation in the United States is facilitated by road, air, rail, and waterways (via boats). The vast majority of passenger travel occurs by automobile for shorter distances, and airplane (or railroad for some people) for longer distances. In descending order, most cargoes travel by railroad, truck, pipeline, or boat; air shipping is typically used only for perishables and premium express shipments.
