Commercial enterprises often encounter the need for “OTR” transportation, which refers to Over The Road cargo shipping. Under this service, the total transit is carried out on the road with a Dry Van, Reefer, or Flatbed. These types of services have a greater risk as roads tend to face more accidents, weather concerns, and delay issues than the sea. Not all shipping companies can be trusted to carry out this task. Does that mean the OTR service is not safe at all? Choosing the right service provider is secure, and you will hardly have another better option than Polo 4PL.
Polo 4PL ensures all trucks and trailers are DOT-compliant. Every truck needs to be in excellent condition to proceed to haul any inconvenience.
Transportation generally takes place in three types of vehicles: dry van, reefer, and flatbed. Customers can choose or ask our experts which of these would be best suited for their cargo, and we will carry out the process accordingly.
Whether your shipment is taking place through a dry van/ reefer/ flatbed, whatever may be your mode of shipment, Polo 4PL ensures that the vehicle is in excellent condition before it leaves the facility.

All these facilities are provided regardless of where you are located in the US. Yes, all 48 states are covered by Polo 4PL.

Freight brokers are the liaison between shippers and carriers, utilizing carrier networks to move shipments quicker and more efficiently. Generally, freight brokers have to collaborate with carriers to successfully conclude the service. While the freight broker is the one who picks up the assignment, the trucking service provider transfers the cargo to the desired location. An in-house freight brokerage team of Polo 4PL ensures to provide clients with A-Z freight services from the port to the customer’s doorstep.

FTL and LTL – Over the Road – OTR truck drivers haul all types of items including heavy freight, machinery, construction materials, and other equipment.
OTR or over-the-road service is often a requirement when the cargo has to move within the boundaries of the country or state. There are two options for OTR available at Polo 4PL, FTL, and LTL.
Under LTL, trucks carry freight from multiple companies instead of an individual. This service is an affordable option and is quite popular among medium and micro-sized organizations. Although goods of numerous clients are carried in the same truck, it does not at all mean that any compromise is made in the quality of service. Polo 4PL ensures that products of an exclusive category only are carried together. This way, proper conditioning could be maintained according to the requirement of the goods.
Despite being on the pricier side, FTL has its own benefits. For example: If you are not equipped with a quantity of cargo that can fill up the entire capacity of the truck but still want exclusivity, this service can fulfill your wish. FTL is often utilized when the shipment quantity is quite huge, requires an entire trailer, or can mess the quality of other products.
