Why Ground Logistics May Be the Best Solution for Your Business

Although air shipping can be a convenient option for your business, in many instances, traditional ground shipping methods simply make more sense. Ground logistics can be used for both short and long distance freight and services can be customized to your specific needs. In today’s blog, learn more about ground logistics basics and how your company could benefit from them.

Ground logistics is a flexible and affordable shipping option that’s right for many businesses.

Flexible options to meet your timeline and budget

One of the greatest benefits of ground logistics is its flexibility. If your shipment won’t fill an entire truck, you can choose less-than-truckload shipping (LTL) instead of paying for space you don’t need. LTL shipping is suitable for shipments that are between 100-15,000 pounds and at AFP Global Logistics, we will ensure that your shipment makes it to its final destination within 7 days or less. If you have enough freight to fill an entire truck or if your goods are heavier and will weigh between 10,000-45,000 pounds, full truckload shipping (FTL) is the ideal solution. Your FTL shipment will be delivered safely and promptly and will meet your budget and timeline.

Specific equipment for your specific needs

Another benefit of ground logistics is that you can choose trucks that will meet the specific needs of your shipment. Whether you require refrigerated trailers, lowboy options, flatbeds, or trucks with special dimensions, AFP Global Logistics has extensive relationships with a number of trucking companies which allows us to meet any and all of your needs.
