With a plethora of toll booths and ever-present traffic, let’s be honest, there isn’t really a direct route through Chicago. You can take a direct drive, however. Direct Drive Logistics works with a dependable team of owner operators across the country.
We work with owner operators equipped with Conestoga trailers, dry vans, flatbeds and other freight carrier trucks to ensure you get the perfect service for your shipment. Whether you need FTL shipments sent from LA to Chicago, or an intermodal container sent all the way down to Miami, you can rely on Direct Drive Logistics fro over the road shipping.
Direct Drive Logistics works with owner operators equipped with drop-decks, lowboys, and everything in between to fit your logistics needs. Flatbeds are ideal for shipping stackable products or oversized equipment. Whether you’re shipping forklifts to Dallas, or bringing in palletized product from Houston, you can rely on a flatbed carrier from Direct Drive Logistics.
Owner operators across the Midwest work with Direct Drive Logistics to ship FTL and LTL orders. Whether you only have a few pallets or you need to ship several truckloads of product, you can rely on Direct Drive Logistics to find a dry van for your shipment. We ship in and out of Chicago every day, and our team of owner operators work across the country.
A Conestoga trailer provides all the security of a dry van with the versatility of a flatbed. A dry van requires small forklifts to load directly in the back of the trailer, while flatbeds expose products to the elements during shipping. Conestoga trailers allow larger forklifts to load oversized products on the side of the trailer, while the collapsible tarp protects components from the elements.
Are you are an available owner/operator? Do you want to deal with professional brokers who know logistics? Want to be busy hauling cargo in your Step deck or Straight truck? Without deadheading an empty load back home? Contact the friendly and dependable experts at Direct Drive Logistics.
Direct Drive Logistics provides affordable and cost-saving logistics to ship freight from, through and to the Chicago area. We work with reputable owner operators and handle our own insurance policies to ensure your freight is delivered on time with no delays or freight damage.
