Freight Shipping Illinois
Shipping to and from Illinois often routes through Chicago which, as one of the nation’s oldest cities, sits along the Mississippi and Illinois rivers and right next to Lake Michigan with its access to the Atlantic Ocean by way of the Saint Lawrence Seaway. If you need to forward freight, our trusted team of shippers are ready to provide a fast turnaround on the quote you need to start moving your cargo. Whether it is ground freight shipping, truck freight shipping, or less than truckload (LTL) freight shipping, Deployed Logistics has access to volume discounts. With an extensive freight rail transportation grid developed during the city’s heyday as a grain and meatpacking hub, nearly every North American railway meets at Chicago to make it the largest and most active rail hub in the country. The Port of Chicago has several major port facilities as well as Calumet Harbor that support the state’s additional major industrial hubs of Rockford, Aurora, Joliet, Naperville, Peoria, Springfield, and Elgin. Through our partners in Illinois there is easy access to the important waterways, the extensive system of freeways and roads and enough rail networks to move, manage and distribute all your freight. With our network support personnel, we can also manage the customized tasks you may require such as freight special handling, late night or after hours deliveries, palletizing, and work with custom brokers.
