What Is Shared Dedicated Transportation?

Understand the value Shared Dedicated Transportation can bring to your supply chain

Shared dedicated transportation is a shipping solution that combines the freight from multiple shippers into one truckload — it’s like carpooling for your freight. Shippers turn to this option when they want a consistent and cost-effective solution to less-than-truckload, parcel or expedited shipments. Benefits of this include a reduction in miles and fuel costs, a solution to driver shortages, and the ability to utilize a more sustainable delivery option.
