Flatbed Freight Shipping & Trucking

specialized flatbed trucking

Logistics Group International (LGI) is a leading third party logistics provider, specializing in flatbed freight shipping throughout North America. We provide reliable, safe flatbed delivery for standard cargo sizes, as well as oversize, over-dimensional, and heavy cargo.

Flatbed trucking is selected when freight is not easily transported in an enclosed vehicle due to its size or dimensions. Flatbeds allow for manual or crane loading and unloading from the top, back, and sides, making them a preferred choice for time-sensitive deliveries or destinations without loading docks.
