LTL AND TRUCKLOAD SERVICE

CRST STI provides specialized shipping options that ensure proper handling and delivery of your cargo and utilize our vast resources and experience. STI’s blanket wrap services, are ideal for moving large items which require the upmost protection but are difficult to crate.

LTL Network

Not every shipment you make will require an entire trailer, but individual security and proper handling are still high priorities. Whether you ship furniture, appliances, or any other sensitive cargo, you need to know that your items will be delivered on schedule and damage free. That is why CRST STI maintains an LTL Network that handles transportation for less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments of 5000 lbs. or less. Consisting of strategically located distribution centers, the LTL Network allows us to service more than half of the U.S. and Canadian population every day.

Every one of our LTL Network distribution centers has full warehousing and cross-dock loading capabilities. We also use on site and satellite technology to provide real-time inventory locating and shipment tracking. Our experienced operators are trained on specific products and pad wrap packing techniques to ensure damage-free delivery.

When you move items that demand special handling, timely arrival, and focused attention, you can trust us to get the job done right.
