Whether it’s full container transport management, cross-dock, or if you have a full truckload of goods that are palletised or loose for re-delivery, we offer efficient and professional Full-Truck Load land (FTL) freight transport services. We are committed to providing an end-to-end, one-stop-shop level of service for our customers.
Full-Truck Load refers to a mode of shipping where the total carrying capacity of the truck is dedicated to a single shipment. Much like FCL (Full-Container Load) in ocean freight shipping, this grants a host of benefits and advantages to customers who wish to have more control over their freight movement.
Our FTL service can be used for a variety of purposes, most commonly for empty container transport, loaded container movement to container freight station (CFS) or port, as well as cargo movement for palletised and loose products for re-delivery. For Cross-Border FTL freight, we also offer customs clearance and brokerage to ensure compliance and seamless movement.
We are also capable of providing cross-dock, which further reduces handling. By combining FTL with our cross-dock services, we can drastically reduce the need for large warehouse and storage spaces, reducing labour costs through minimising handling as well as shrinking lead-times.
If you have more complex needs, such as Project Cargo, our freight professionals will work with you to design the best solution. TVS SCS has a dedicated freight forwarding network with local offices and expertise in key logistics hubs and markets in the Asia-Pacific, Europe, Oceania and India, providing you with unrivalled local experience and knowledge.
We offer FTL and Less-than-Truck Load (LTL) trucking services as part of our Intermodal and Multimodal solutions capabilities. We help you simplify and streamline the process of moving freight to ports at origin and from ports at destination to offer a holistic end-to-end service.
Along with warehousing and value-added services such as unloading, pick/pack, palletisation and others, our land freight management solutions are part of our Integrated Freight Forwarding and Distribution solutions and services. Our FTL services cover a range of truck types, including standard trailers, side loaders, curtainsider or tautliner trailers, tail lift and more. Our 24/7 online tracking platform e-Connect grants you full visibility of your shipment.
Our global freight forwarding network integrates our e-Connect online track and trace with the CargoWise IT platform. We use this across our entire international business to provide you with seamless 24/7 shipment visibility and live access to your data. With e-Connect, our airfreight customers also enjoy one login to access other aspects of their business, such as warehousing, order management, account management and shipment management information on the desktop website platform.
We also have a mobile app available on iOS and Android, which provides on-the-go visibility on shipment data that matters most to you.
