Full Truckload: Dry van core lanes between Southern California, NJ/NY, Chicagoland and Florida, with some frequency in GA and TX.  Refrigerated services between NJ/NY, Florida and Midwest. Solo drivers and a few teams.

Load To Ride: Unique service offering that provides faster transit times without the use of multiple cross-dock handlings, by eliminating typical LTL break-bulks. Your shipments from 3 to 14 pallet positions are rated by pallet position, and loaded to ride to the destination customer on our direct LTR Truckloads. This service is a perfect fit for high-value items, fragile products, oddly-shape dimensional pieces and shipments that cannot be double-stacked.

LTL: Smith utilizes a proprietary software system called BUD-E, which optimizes your choices of LTL Provider, Rate and Transit Time, to assure you get the proper Value for your shipping dollar.

Inter-Modal: Smith has longstanding relationships with Rail, IM and Drayage providers, and can streamline your process utilizing these modes for optimal transport of goods.

This was a test run with a new customer.  It was very important that we performed up to their standards and we did. Thanks to Jorge and Danny. We need a strategic partner and Smith Cargo seems to be that carrier. Hialeah Gardens, FL - Customer
