Anyone who has been involved with transportation and logistics companies knows that it’s a tough business. It’s not uncommon for carriers to come and go, therefore, finding a reliable transportation partner often times proves to be challenging.
TL and LTL Services
Truckload service is just that… dispatching a dedicated truck full of your goods from point A to point B. The usual scenario is that we pick up your goods at your location and move them to the freight’s final destination. Most likely, there’s no loading and unloading in between, but it’s not always the case.
Furex also provides less than truckload (LTL) shipping services mostly on a local and regional basis. LTL is the most cost effective way of moving goods for a client who has 10 pallets or less of goods. The way LTL works is that we pick a load at your facility, and then proceed to other clients located in the same city until the truck is filled. After that, the freight goes back to the terminal. Then your freight, depending on its destination, will be moved to another truck or trucks where it will be combined with freights of other customers. Finally, the freight will leave for its final journey until it reaches the destination.
Furex is capable of handling all aspects of logistics tasks and challenges. Our goals is to simplify the logistics process for all of our customers. Whether you are starting a new business and looking for an advice how to structure your supply chain or you are well-versed in the logistics process, Furex is here to help. Unlike most 3PLs, we don’t believe in “one size fits all” solutions and are glad to work directly with our clients. We start with identifying their needs and work until we are confident that we the most efficient services and procedures in place.
Cross docking is a process of unloading freight from one trailer or rail car to another without storing the freight. It is widely used throughout the LTL freight industry to facilitate quicker and more efficient deliveries. LTL carriers generally use the cross-docking method to move freight from one trailer to another to allow more efficient and timely deliveries. Alternatively, they may unload the trailer and place the freight in a staging area to sort and stage the freight with several shipments for optimizing the delivery route. Furex is equipped with the right type of facilities to handle cross-docking related tasks and our staff is well-trained able to handle large volumes of freight in an orderly and efficient manner.
