Expedited/White Glove Service

Do you sometimes need your freight to arrive quicker than regular LTL, or possibly handled with White Glove Service*? Do you ship big, bulky items that are a freight class 150 or higher? If so, contact Global Source Logistics directly for more pricing options through carriers that not only offer quicker transit times, but also a higher level of delivery service over regular LTL carriers. We’ve teamed up with specialized carriers that go by weight and dimensions, NOT freight class. By not using a freight class to rate your shipments, your lower density items can usually ship for less money.

Here are some recent examples of cost savings:

  • Class 200, 506 lbs, CFS station to JFK airport. LTL – $297 (1-day service) vs $153 – Expedited (same day service).
  • Class 175, 630 lbs, AZ to NY. LTL – $680 (4-day service) vs $577 – Expedited (3-day service)
  • Class 150, 202 lbs, DE to CA. LTL – $291 (5-day service) vs $425 – Expedited (4-day with White Glove Delivery Service*)

*White Glove Delivery Service included an inside delivery with unwrapping AND disposal of all packaging. This type of service can vary from shipment to shipment, but can include any or all of the following:

  • Off-site packaging or crating
  • Inside pickup
  • Palletizing
  • Inside delivery
  • Unpacking freight
  • Removal of all packaging materials

Please note, this program is not for everyone, just those with higher freight classed commodities that may possibly benefit with this program. Call us for more information.
