Going the Extra Mile
Small Haul Trucking
RDS Logistics Group offers businesses small haul trucking services to more efficiently move LTL shipments to and from customer facilities. Our small haul shipments are moved with the least amount of handling and transloading prior to delivery as possible.
As our VP of RDS Logistics – Jeremy Engstrom would say, “Small Haul, where we haul it all, as long as it’s small. But if it’s big, we will run it in a rig. And if it’s in between, you’ve found the right team. Give us ALL your freight!”
Small Haul Trucking Services
RDS is a four-decade long specialist in local freight distribution due to our intermodal drayage service. That unit delivers 80% of its freight within the counties Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside. Hence, we know the Los Angeles Basin well.
Small haul is designed to handle distribution of local less-than-trailer load (LTL) shipments using various “open top” trucks and trailers. RDS Logistics Group’s freight brokerage can source small haul for its existing flatbed customer base’s LTL shipments.
Small Haul Shipments
RDS Logistics Group’s small haul shipments eliminate the need and cost for a separate facility to receive and deliver small shipments. We move shipments between manufacturers or distributors to their end users directly. Freight is loaded at the manufacturer or distributor, driven directly to the end user, and unloaded. Such shipments can normally be shipped and delivered on the same day, eliminating intermediate stops and handling prior to delivery.
The LTL Light Advantage
RDS has the flexibility of matching the right type and size of equipment to the nature of the product our customers need delivered. Unloading can be accomplished in a variety of ways based on the choice of equipment, from ramp to lift gate to attached fork-lift equipment. We can handle shipments from four feet to twenty-six feet, and due to the open-top nature of the equipment, we can handle shipments that do not fit within enclosed vehicles.
