President’s Letter

When you think of LTL carriers, maybe you picture freight in the back of a trailer going down the interstate. With a network of more than 200 terminals located from coast to coast, Estes is well-known as a cross-country LTL expert. But some of the destinations we serve aren’t across the country: they’re across the ocean.

Our offshore services are among the best in the industry because we focus on protecting freight integrity. When you choose Estes for transportation solutions to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or the Caribbean, you can rest assured that your shipment will travel in an Estes trailer or container from origin to destination, with Estes personnel there every step of the way
to help ensure safety and efficiency.

A unique set of stabilizing bars in our Alaska, Puerto Rico and Caribbean-bound trailers, and in our Hawaii shipment containers, is another Estes advantage for offshore freight. We’ve found that this advanced system does a better job of protecting fragile cargo in rough seas, and we’re one of the first LTL carriers in the nation to use it. Meanwhile, behind it all are the experienced team members in our offshore department, who are available to assist you from
7 a.m.–10 p.m. EST.

As always, we appreciate your continued business, and we look forward to assisting with your future shipments…no matter where they’re going.
