State and Nationwide Truck Transportation Service

Less-than-truckload (LTL)

Full Truckload services and LTL Truckload servicesLTL stands for Less-than-Truckload. LTL refers to the fact that a smaller truck freight load is too large to ship as a parcel, and it’s too small to fit in a full-size trailer. LTL shipments are usually consolidated into full-container, or truckloads, and then shipped to the final destination after passing distribution hubs. LTL shipping offers significant savings compared to the same load being shipped by dedicated truck.

Texas International Freight works with all the major Consolidated Trucking Companies in the United States. We help you book freight and get it to your destination anywhere in the U.S., Alaska, Mexico and Canada in as little as a few days. Our volume discount agreements with LTL carriers allow us to provide our customers with prices they can’t beat. Our level of service is unparalleled.

Hot Shot Local Delivery and National Shipping Transportation Services

Galaxy International Freight specializes in hotshot trucking. It’s your go-to solution for urgent or time-sensitive freight deliveries. Developed in the rapidly changing oil and gas industry, our hotshot services are tailored to your critical needs. We move your cargo quickly and accurately to avoid costly downtime.

We use medium-duty class 3, 4 or 5 trucks to provide an agile and flexible service that can take you to places larger trucks cannot. From city streets to remote locations, our specialized trucks can get you where you need to go fast and efficiently.

Our hotshot service is perfect for loads that weigh less and are smaller than traditional freight, usually no more than 10,000 lbs.

These shipments are often very important and require fast and safe transportation. Yes, expedited hotshot services cost more than standard freight services, but consider it an investment in your peace of mind knowing that your cargo will be delivered quickly, dedicatedly and reliably.

What Is the Difference Between Dry Van and Flatbed?

Dry Van, also known as a flatbed trailer, is a type of trailer used in the commercial trucking and cargo transportation industry. Each type of trailer has its own unique characteristics and advantages.

Dry Van

A dry van is a trailer that is fully enclosed. It is usually 53 feet long. It is used to transport pallets or box of cargo, usually non-perishable items. The enclosed design of a dry van protects the cargo from the elements and road conditions. A dry van is usually used to transport goods such as clothes, electronics, non-perishable foods and beverages. Due to their design, dry vans have restrictions in terms of cargo size and shape. A dry van loads and unloads from the back, which may necessitate a loading dock.

Flatbed Trailer

A flatbed trailer is a flat, open-topped trailer with no roof or sides. A flatbed trailer can hold a variety of cargo, such as large, heavy or oddly shaped items that would otherwise be confined to a Dry Van. Flatbed trailers are often used to transport construction equipment, heavy machinery, building materials or any oversized goods that require more room than a Dry Van can provide. Because a flatbed trailer is open-topped, cargo can be loaded and unloaded from the top, side or rear of the flatbed. However, due to the open-topped nature, cargo may need additional protection from the elements.

So what’s the difference between a dry van and a flatbed trailer? Well, it all comes down to their design and what kind of cargo they can carry. A Dry Van is an enclosed trailer that’s designed for small, non-perishable goods that need to be protected from the elements. A Flatbed trailer, on the other hand, is an open-topped trailer that can carry large, heavy or irregularly shaped goods.  Which one to choose will depend on the type of cargo you’re hauling.
