Domestic Tour Logistics
Acme Global Logistics gets your gear when and where you need. For U.S. domestic shipping, ground transportation is the most economical solution.
LTL (less than truckload) Shipping
LTL (less than truckload) shipping is possible pretty much anywhere. Mountain tops, bottoms of canyons and desolate wilderness locations may be challenging.
LTL shipping can take just a bit longer, so it may require more lead time. Less that truckload shipping can also be the most cost effective option. For a few road cases or pallets, this is usually the way to go.
FTL (full truckload) Shipping
For more gear, FTL (full truckload) may be the correct choice. Truckloads can be different sizes (20’, 40’ and 53’ long, 96” or 102” wide) so we’ll coordinate what makes the most sense for you.
One advantage to FTL shipping is the dedication of that vehicle to only your gear. That can make the transport faster.
Full truckload maximums generally have three “and/or” limits:
- 44,000 pounds of product
- 2,500 cubic feet of product
- 30 standard pallets (40” x 48” footprint each)
Unlike a general logistics company, we’re experts with road cases on wheels and other “non-standard” freight. Our domestic service partners are required to have trailers with e-track, straps and load bars to carefully secure your cargo.
If gear needs to be there quickly, we offer expedited services too. Depending on distance and the time of day you contact us, we can get it there the next day. Hot shots (dedicated truck of variable sizes) a good option for expedited services.
If your freight has to go long distances quickly, we also offer airfreight options.
