Moving cargo isn’t always as simple as loading up a truck and driving from point A to point B. At AMP Specialized Logistics, LLC we know that every customer has different needs and every load offers a new challenge. A combination of the right skills, the right experience and the right equipment are key to being one of the top specialized 3PL companies in the U.S. and Canada.
With our best logistics experts, most experienced drivers, and a wide range of specialized hauling equipment available, we can exceed expectations when it comes to transporting your freight. No matter what you need delivered, we’ll get it there safely and on time.
There are numerous types of freight being moved every day, and knowing the trailer types required in hauling the equipment/freight that you need shipped is a must in the transportation industry.
Not only is it costly to you for sending a wrong trailer in but you stand the risk of the rental of the crane that is not in use while you get another driver on the load and could lose a customer out of the ordeal.
I hope that you will use this as a reference. A 3PL will always know the product being hauled and the type of trailer being used for it.
Please note that this gives general information and is for reference only. LDI/ AMP Specialized Logistics, LLC is not responsible for any damaged freight or any other situation that may arise.
