Local Freight Trucking Services Procurement in the US

This report is intended to assist buyers of local freight trucking services. This market’s suppliers (also called carriers) provide trucking services within a single metropolitan area, thereby making their shipping routes short enough for same-day returns. Carriers move palletized general cargo primarily using box trucks for transport. Most carriers are not specialized and do not focus on refrigerated transport, automobile transport, intermodal container transport, oversize-load transport or the transport of bulk liquids or dry goods.
