By choosing our Full Truckload service, you ensure yourself with a premium quality secured transport and on-time delivery of your cargo. Full truckloads are typically freight shipments that can weigh up to 45,000 lbs. and up to 53ft of space. Full truckload shipments usually travel as the only shipment on a trailer and are delivered on the same trailer that picks them up. The proper selection of the right carriers on their best lanes can maximize hard and soft cost savings. Truckload can be complex and Alcatraz LLC is here to help you simplify your business.
Shipping a full truckload provides more options for your cargo. Shipping FTL from origin to destination is the most time and cost efficient way to truck a large amount of cargo.
With full truckload (FTL), shipments typically travel on only one truck with one destination. Additionally, Alcatraz LLC is able to give a more accurate time frame on when the freight will arrive. Less than truckload shipments typically make multiple stops so delivery time estimates are often faster in comparison to less than truckload (LTL) shipping. The chance of possible damage to items during transit also decreases since there is less handling of the freight at multiple stops. FTL also makes sense when the freight weighs more than 15,000 pounds, or the company has more than 10 pallets worth of goods to transport.
Less Than Truckload
If you have less than a truckload of cargo that needs to be moved, we offer you our LTL services.
We care for our costumers regardless of cargo size.
LTL is a type of ground freight transportation that combines shipments from multiple customers. Businesses choose this budget-friendly option when the consumer demand for their products is average or stable. Less than truckload shipping is affordable for small business because you share the transportation costs with other companies. Each company takes up a portion of the truck for their goods and only pays according to the amount of product shipped and the length of travel.
Alcatraz LLC, as an experienced transportation logistics company will work hard to save you money by matching your shipments with regularly scheduled shipments heading to the same destination.
This mode has benefits shippers should consider when looking for faster transit times, less handling, and a more cost-effective solution. Definitions of LTL vary but are generally based on the size of the order (weight and linear feet) and service requirements (time sensitivity and the type of freight). LTL networks are optimized for shipments generally less than 12 linear feet and one to six pallets. Full truckloads tend to contain 26 to 30 pallets and approximately 42,500 pounds. Why pay for a full truckload if you don’t have to?
We strive to make long-lasting connections with our customers and in that light, we can arrange dedicated trailers or drivers if you prefer so.

The benefits of this service are that no other freight will be loaded on the truck and no pickups or deliveries can conflict with your defined schedule for pickup and delivery. Our dedicated trucking services were designed to offer you a turn-key solution to improve your shipping efficiency. It’s like owning a truck without the late deliveries, liability, an expense of maintenance and complex logistics problems.

In addition to supplying devoted drivers to operate your dedicated fleets, Alcatraz LLC will also configure the equipment to maximize asset utilization and increase fuel efficiency.

If you need just a truck to move your trailer,
loaded or not, we can help. Power only service allows you to do just that.
What happens when you have your own loaded trailer but no truck or driver to move your shipment? The service Alcatraz LLC can offer is called power only trucking. With power only trucking, a truck, and driver are hired to transport your trailer and products to your specified destination. The power only service isn’t only limited to a single trailer shipment, this service can provide a team of drivers depending on load size, a number of trailers, and logistical needs. The power only shipping service we provide allows you to move your shipment locally, long distance, or even across state lines.
Alcatraz LLC trucks utilize an adjustable fifth wheel that helps the truck to your trailers dimensions and specifications. Depending on the weight loads and standard size load versus oversize loads, standard axle units, as well as four-axle units, can be available to suit your needs.
This service is great for companies that have more trailers that need to be moved that trucks available to move them. It also works great for companies that have unexpected cargo that needs to be moved but nobody available to transport.
