With top-of-the-line equipment, training, compliance, IT and a highly experienced staff, we are ready to serve you needs.
Our experienced team is ready to assist you, whether you need trucks to move your cargo containers from their point of origin to a rail hub, or you need them transferred from rail to barge or from barge to rail, or delivered directly to their final destination. FW is well versed in all aspects of multi-modal coordination.
Rather than paying ramp detention fees, our container drayage clients routinely have us do yard pulls. We have our own storage lots, to which we can pull containers to avoid costs and provide our clients with options when things get delayed.
Managing demurrage is another way that FW Trucking works with our clients to save them money. With our software and commitment to service, we will notify and stay on the consignee to promptly unload containers so we can return before Per Diem starts.
In addition, if you need a container drayage solution that includes transloading, cross-docking or palletizing, our sister company, FW Warehousing operates warehouse distribution centers in Missouri, Illinois and Indiana totaling 3 million square feet for general warehousing, hazardous chemical storage, food-grade warehousing and cold storage.
