There's hot shot truck driving, which generally consists of delivering time-critical items over relatively short distances of 50-100 miles. And then there's long haul trucking, which is essentially the exact opposite, consisting of drivers transporting products, items or goods hundreds or perhaps even several thousands of miles across the country to their destination.
For instance, drivers may operate flatbed rigs or semi-trucks full of product, which can range in variety. Long haul truck drivers are largely responsible for the load that they're transporting, regularly inspecting it before and during their journey to ensure that the product is secure and won't shift or move around easily.
On this page, we'll further discuss the benefits of long haul trucking compared to other methods of transportation, what to look for when hiring a long haul truck driver for your next shipment and why our company is quickly become one of the preferred long haul trucking providers in North America. Read on for more about what we can do for you and how we can do it for you.
Like we said in the beginning, long haul trucking is an ideal expedited shipping process for large quantities of goods or items. Trucks travel hundreds or thousands of miles across the country to move goods from origin to their destination.
And this process alone helps describe one of the biggest benefits of long haul trucking — transportation of many items at once.
Unlike same day freight, air freight, expedited freight, hot shot freight or other expedited service providers, long haul trucking is a ground delivery service that delivers many of the same items.
It's an option where there's a desire for items to arrive to their destination within a time frame of just days.
Not all long haul trucking companies are created equal, so it's important to do your homework when it comes to selecting the right provider.
