If you are a manufacturer of heavy landscaping equipment, you are looking for high paying flatbed, step deck or Conestoga loads to move your bulldozer, bobcat or backhoe to buyers safely and efficiently. To ship bulky heavy freight, flatbed trailers are a versatile option for easy loading and unloading. If you need extra tall freight shipped over the road and the route has height restrictions on account of a bridge or overpass, our freight brokers set you up with a step deck carrier. Conestoga trailers feature pullover covers to move heavy cargo and protect it from harsh climates during shipment.

Our ability to put together high paying loads utilizing several different kinds of shipping containers puts us in a position minimize your shipping costs and maximize your revenue. Trust in our freight brokers at Direct Drive Logistics to optimize your shipping budget and keep more money in your back pocket.

Logistics Consultants Provide Intermodal Shipping Options

Hauls taking a week by road alone take only days with intermodal trailers. With access to many different kinds of shipping freight vehicles, Direct Drive Logistics gets your expedited freight shipped efficiently by road, railroad track or sea by offering several lengths of intermodal containers:

  • 20 ft—holds 10 pallets
  • 40 ft—holds 20 pallets
  • 45 ft—holds 24 pallets
  • 53 ft—holds 30 pallets


Manufacturers are always looking for ways to cut costs. If production materials are significantly cheaper overseas or from another part of the country, they must consider the shipping costs. An inefficient logistics company may not provide low enough shipping charges to justify purchasing cheaper materials from further away.

Direct Drive Logistics provides manufacturers the opportunity to take advantage of the lower prices. We use the flexibility of intermodal container carriers to ship heavy cargo over land or sea. Loads can be transferred from ship to train to semi-trailer with no time lost loading and unloading.

A Partnership in Freight Transportation

Our freight broker experts know how to eliminate negative results of poor planning. Manufacturers consistently suffer the following stealth losses on account of substandard logistics: deadhead drivers, cross docking, freight damage and stop off charges.

We work tirelessly to avoid any loss of revenue resulting from such work-stopping situations. When you trust in our logistics professionals, you get your shipments on the move, and they stay on the move. Our logistics company minimizes your costs and maximizes your revenue. No matter the situation, Direct Drive Logistics is there for you to keep your shipments on time and moving.
