What is a freight broker?
 

A freight broker is an entity that connects manufacturers/distributors with carriers to move cargo. A broker does not actually transport the goods, but uses industry resources and contacts to find a carrier that suits the needs of both shipper and consignee. In this way, the broker acts as an intermediary between the two parties. 

The main benefit of using a freight broker is that it can save time and money by using the broker’s expertise to find the best carrier for your shipment. This can remove a great deal of stress from the transport logistics equation, particularly when dealing with cross border shipping.

If you are looking for a reliable and experienced freight broker, ATPAC Transportation is a great choice. With over 30 years of experience, we are experts in connecting with carriers to ensure your cargo is in good hands. Contact us today for a free quote!

Transport Truck - Hauling Freight

What Type of Freight Do You Transport?

ATPAC can transport the following types of freight within North America, including:
 
LTL (less than truckload)
LTL shipping is a service where multiple shipments from different customers are combined into a single truckload, making it a cost-effective option for shipping smaller quantities of goods.
 
FTL (full truckload)
FTL shipping involves reserving an entire truck for a single shipment, typically for larger quantities of goods that can fill the entire truck. Truckload service is needed when transit time is critical, dedicated service, and set appointments are required.
 
Over-dimensional transportation
Over-dimensional transportation, a specialized subset of trucking logistics, deals with the transportation of cargo that exceeds standard size and weight limits. This category typically includes oversized or heavy items such as machinery, construction equipment, wind turbine components, and more.

Protective Service Transportation
Protective service transportation refers to a specialized segment of the transportation industry that focuses on safeguarding high-value and sensitive cargo during transit. 

HAZ-MAT Commodities
Haz-Mat (Hazardous Materials) commodities represent a category of cargo that poses potential risks to health, safety, and the environment due to their hazardous nature. These materials can include chemicals, flammable substances, radioactive materials, and other dangerous goods

Temperature-Sensitive Shipments
Temperature-sensitive shipments represent a critical aspect of trucking logistics, catering to industries where maintaining precise temperature conditions is paramount. This category of cargo includes pharmaceuticals, perishable foods, medical supplies, and chemicals, among others. Ensuring that these goods are transported within a specified temperature range is essential to preserve their quality, efficacy, and safety.

Container Transport (transfer and returns)
Container transport is a cornerstone of modern logistics, revolutionizing the way goods are shipped and handled worldwide. It involves the use of standardized cargo containers, typically 20 or 40 feet in length, to transport a wide range of products across various modes of transportation, including ships, trains, and trucks. These containers are designed for efficiency, security, and versatility, allowing for easy loading and unloading, as well as seamless transfer between different modes of transport.

Flatbed
Flatbed shipping is a specialized and versatile mode of transportation within the logistics industry. It involves the use of flatbed trailers, which have an open and flat cargo area without sides or a roof. This design makes flatbeds ideal for transporting oversized, irregularly shaped, or heavy cargo that cannot fit inside standard enclosed trailers. Industries such as construction, manufacturing, and agriculture often rely on flatbed shipping to transport items like machinery, building materials, large equipment, and even vehicles.

Curtain Side
Curtain side shipping, also known as curtain-side transportation or curtain-side trailers, is a method of cargo transportation that utilizes specially designed trailers with flexible curtains or tarp-like sides instead of solid walls. These trailers are equipped with sliding curtains made of durable materials, typically vinyl or reinforced fabric, which can be easily opened and closed, similar to curtains on a window. This design allows for convenient and quick access to the cargo from both sides of the trailer. Curtain-side trailers are commonly used for transporting goods that may require side loading or unloading, such as palletized freight, machinery, and other oversized or awkwardly shaped items.

Heavy Haul
Heavy haul in logistics refers to the transportation of oversized and extremely heavy cargo that exceeds standard legal weight and size limits. This specialized segment of logistics involves the movement of items such as industrial machinery, construction equipment, large transformers, wind turbine components, and more. Heavy haul shipments often require specialized equipment, including multi-axle trailers and lowboy trailers with the capacity to distribute weight and support massive loads.

Oversize
"Oversize" or "Oversized" refers to cargo or freight that exceeds the standard legal limits for size, weight, or dimensions set by regulatory authorities. Oversize cargo is typically larger, heavier, or bulkier than what can be transported using standard transportation methods or vehicles. This category of freight can include items such as large machinery, construction equipment, industrial components, and even modular buildings.
