Partial Shipping

When it comes to partial shipments, Direct Transport Logistics stands head and shoulders above the rest. Our unwavering commitment to efficiency, reliability, and customer satisfaction makes us the go-to choice for all your partial shipment needs. Partial shipments refer to the transportation of goods or cargo that do not fill an entire shipping container or truck. It's often overlooked compared to full truckload and less than truckload (LTL) options. Partial truckload combines elements of both. It's used for shipments over 7,000 pounds or with six or more pallets. Unlike full truckload, no freight class is needed, and there's less handling, so it's faster.

This type of shipping is great for cost-effective transport of lightweight or fragile items and avoids extra charges.

Other Benefits Include:

1. Seamless Transport

Your items enjoy continuous security on a single truck for the entirety of the journey. Our consolidated approach minimizes handling, reducing risks and ensuring your cargo arrives intact and on time.

2. No Surprises on Freight Class Charges

Say goodbye to unexpected fees for freight class adjustments – our straightforward approach ensures that the quote you receive is the price you'll pay.

3. Minimized Handling, Maximized Protection

Experience reduced handling, which translates to a lower risk of damage during loading and unloading. Trust us to handle your cargo with care from start to finish.

4. Accelerated Delivery

We ensure faster delivery by minimizing stops along the way. Our streamlined approach gets your cargo to its destination promptly and efficiently.

This approach allows for cost-effective and flexible transportation solutions, as the remaining space in the container or truck can be utilized for other shipments. Partial shipments are particularly beneficial for small to medium-sized businesses or when the volume of goods does not warrant a full container or truckload. By consolidating multiple partial shipments, companies can optimize their logistics, reduce costs, and ensure efficient utilization of transportation resources.
