Domestic Freight

Domestic Freight Delivered:
We Keep Your Goods Trucking Along!

At Shapiro, we’ve been rocking the domestic freight scene for over a century, building a nationwide network of inland freight vendors that’s as robust as our love for logistics. We’re not just about shuttling cargo from point A to point B; we’re about making freight forwarding fun and efficient.

Let the Goods Rock 'n' Roll

Handling everything from precision container drayage, to hefty full truckloads (FTL) to the nimbler less-than-truckloads (LTL), to speedy locals, we’ve got your back, ensuring your goods move like they’ve got a backstage pass. Our competitive domestic freight rates and tailored services are designed to keep your logistics grooving! At Shapiro, we sprinkle a little bit of magic (and a lot of expertise) into the mix, transforming typical logistics challenges into “domestic bliss.”

With Shapiro handling your domestic freight or door-to-door needs, you’re not just moving cargo – you’re moving forward with a partner who’s as serious about shipping as we are about making it stress-free and, dare we say, a little fun too!

Shapiro's Dynamic Domestic Freight Solutions Include:

Most truckers aren't ready for that game. We're ready.

Warehousing & Distribution

The big boys always put tremendous pressure on their managers to utilize their assets. There is simply too much incentive to bring your cargo to their warehouse, whether they have the best facility for your supply chain or not.

We have no incentive to place the wrong cargo in the wrong hands at the wrong price. In fact, we find that completely open cost and service analyses build the correct spirit of partnership and collaboration with our customers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! We proudly offer specialized domestic-only trucking and rail services to meet all your shipping needs across the U.S. (and beyond). Our specialty is high-touch container drayage solutions, but we tackle FTL, LTL, cartage, and project cargo, all delivered with tailored tracking technology.

If another freight forwarder manages your ocean or air leg, we’re more than happy to take over once your cargo hits port (or airport). Just let us know when and where, and we’ll handle the rest, ensuring a smooth transition and ongoing support throughout the domestic leg of your shipment.   This works best with our expert Customs clearance or export compliance services, but we don’t want to get greedy!

We offer comprehensive insurance options to protect your cargo from door to door. Whether it’s protection for loss, damage, or other unforeseen circumstances, we’ve got you covered. Just let us know your specific needs, and we can tailor an insurance solution that gives you the best possible coverage.

At Shapiro, more than 25% of our domestic moves need to go on a diet!  Heavyweight is our specialty, and we have extended the TLC required for that segment into expertise for other complex cargoes, including hazardous, out-of-gauge, temperature-controlled, and special equipment.
