Learn more about the different freight and logistics service types and how they serve to benefit your business.


Choosing a Freight and Logistics Service

Before seeking out a freight and logistics service provider, ask yourself a few questions. What are you shipping? Why are you shipping it? Does it require white glove service, or special accommodations due to fragility? 

Companies ship cargo here and there for a slew of reasons. Delicate items require white glove care, products need to hit the shelves, and office furniture needs to be stored and transported during office relocations. You may be looking to cut your final mile costs or invest a bit more in specialty freight shipping for your delicate cargo. These needs can all be met by trusted freight and logistics companies, such as Pyramid Logistics. 

So, what are you shipping, why are you shipping it, and will you need any additional services to keep your mind at ease? Once you know those answers, you can decide which of the following services will best serve your business’s needs:


Specialty Freight Shipping

High-value cargo deserves high-value care. If you’re transporting delicate items that require special accommodations, this is the service for you – be it fragile electronics, product prototypes, or heat-sensitive goods. 

To deliver this white glove service, our shippers and handlers offer customized packing options, on-site pickup and delivery, debris removal, and temperature-controlled trucks to keep your items in pristine condition while on the road. No matter how delicate your cargo is, Pyramid Logistics will provide the care and protection it deserves.


Final Mile Logistics

As most business owners know, the final mile is often the most costly and ridden with delays. If you’re shipping high-value cargo such as retail fixtures, medical devices, and other fragile types of machinery, seeking out a final mile freight and logistics service is suggested to lower the risk of both. 

At Pyramid Logistics, our final mile expertise centers around product transportation. We ensure safe and prompt delivery to your location through a combination of flexible scheduling, online shipment tracking, and white glove service options – keeping your items on track and in mint condition. 


3PL Supply Chain Solutions

Retailers rely on transportation, storage, distribution, and fulfillment partners so that they can store their products in a secure location, and have them delivered to clients or storefronts as needed. If this sounds like you, you may need to consult a 3PL logistics provider. 

We deliver 3PL solutions with our network of warehouses and state-of-the-art Warehouse Management System (WMS), which gives you inventory visibility across all of our locations. Our platform can also integrate with your ERP, TMS, or CRM via API for boosted cohesion and efficiency. 


Studio Transportation

Movie props, sets, and automobiles need to be transported to shooting locations, highlighting another need for freight and logistics companies

Along with inbound transportation, most studio transportation services will help with the setup, breakdown, and storage of any excess items or materials. Thanks to our specialized fleet of studio trucks, Pyramid Logistics has met the unique needs of our movie industry clients for the past two decades.
