As the name implies, specialized services require the expertise and care of experienced logisticians. Third-party logistics (3PL) providers help ensure your valuable freight gets where it’s expected, as it’s expected.

What types of freight require specialized services?

1. Fragile, oversized, or complex items that need an additional layer of protection, such as:

  • Sensitive electronics and devices: office equipment or medical devices and instruments—anything sensitive to bumps, jolts, or knocks
  • Fragile robotics and industrial equipment: complex machinery with moving parts that require extra protection from jostling or pinging
  • Commercial refrigeration and restaurant equipment: large, bulky items that require extra padding and protection from damage and dents
  • Fixtures, furniture, and fragile goods: retail store fixtures, hotel furniture, casino gaming equipment, exercise equipment, residential and hotel furniture, household goods such as mirrors, glass, or pottery, and even Great Grandma's precious antique chandelier

2. Military freight projects that require specific paperwork, processes, and pricing, such as special SDDC authorizations

3. Supply chain transactions, including both input materials and finished products, moving items from origin to destination throughout the supply chain

4. Motorcycles, which may require a fully enclosed ride, air-suspension trucking, tilt-free storage, and more

5. Trade show exhibits, which need to be protected and pristine upon arrival for the ultimate high-impact presentation
