Hot Shot Shipping Services

Urgent calls to move cargo often involve smaller, time sensitive shipments. In the industry, we call these shipments “hot shots." Not every trucking or logistics company will handle these jobs, partly because they require high levels of responsiveness and flexibility from the transportation provider. Our hot shot shipping services go above and beyond, offering urgent point-to-point delivery throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Hot Shot Shipping Services Explained

Hot shot services have many of the same characteristics as standard shipping. For example, we offer both closed deck and open deck options for clients who need their freight moved in an urgent matter.

There are some fundamental differences between hot shot and standard transportation services, but the main difference is the urgent nature of this service and the increased demand of getting the cargo delivered ASAP to meet deadlines.

Industries That Use Hot Shot Trucking
