Customizable Ground Shipping Solutions

Our ground transportation options include:

Truckload

ArcBest offers full truckload service to all 50 states, Canada and Mexico. Whether you need a refrigerated trailer for a temperature-sensitive shipment, a dry van for commercial goods, or a specialty flatbed for a large piece of machinery, we have the capacity to handle your freight.

Less-Than-Truckload (LTL)

LTL ground is a reliable way to ship cargo that doesn’t require a full trailer. Count on ArcBest to provide best-in-class performance — our carrier ABF Freight® has more than 90 years of LTL experience.

Dedicated

Use our dedicated fleet services to ship frequent regional or long-haul shipments. We offer guaranteed capacity, drop and hook services, load planning, and other solutions to help streamline your business.

Intermodal

Optimize your supply chain by using two modes of ground transportation — rail and road — to get shipments from origin to destination. By utilizing intermodal shipping, you can reduce costs, have less impact on the environment, and increase the overall efficiency of long-haul freight.

Customization Options

Need a liftgate or other special equipment or services? ArcBest can provide additional solutions to tailor your shipment. Choose from options such as expedite, time critical and exclusive use vehicles to ensure faster, more secure transportation for your ground freight. And add stair carry, light assembly or other final-mile services to receive extra care for shipments during delivery.
