As a logistics partner for companies of all sizes and industries, including some of the largest in the nation, Corporate Traffic is relied upon every day to provide a wide range of delivery solutions designed to ensure products arrive safely and efficiently to their destination. Check out all the transportation options that best suit your timeline and budget below and see what Corporate Traffic has to offer!

Dry Van

In the realm of freight transportation, few methods hold as much reliability as dry van shipping. In fact, dry vans are the most popular and common trailer you see behind a semi-truck today! Renowned for its widespread usage and steadfast dependability, this transportation mode continues to reign supreme, hence why we have been running dry vans nationally for more than 30 years. We feature GPS tracking technology that provides on-time and up-to-date information on the status of your freight when you need it. We also utilize floor loading, which is the practice of stacking products from the floor to the ceiling of a shipping container without the use of pallets. This tends to incur lower freight costs and the use of fewer containers. Dry Van’s popularity stems from the convenience and advantages offered by an enclosed trailer, keeping the goods and products “dry” and protected from external elements throughout the entirety of the shipping journey.


At Corporate Traffic, we pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive array of flatbed services tailored to meet the diverse needs of our clients. From standard flatbeds to step decks, drop decks, double drops, and RGN (Removable Gooseneck) trailers, we provide versatile solutions to accommodate a wider range of cargo sizes and shapes. Our commitment to safety and security extends to every aspect of our operations, including meticulous tarping and strapping to ensure cargo integrity throughout transit. With a focus on efficiency and reliability, we offer job site delivery services, ensuring that materials arrive precisely where they’re needed and when they’re needed on even the most challenging loads.  


As a registered Intermodal Marketing Company (IMC), CT offers a comprehensive suite of intermodal solutions tailored to meet the evolving needs of our clients. Whether it’s seamless door-to-door or ramp-to-ramp transportation, we provide efficient and cost-effective options to streamline supply chain operations across the US, Canada, and Mexico.

CT specializes in drayage services that ensure seamless transportation to and from US ports and railyards daily. Drayage carriers typically move freight over short distances between facilities either at the beginning or end of a longer shipment, making it a necessary link in transport. Our asset terminal, located in Jacksonville, provides 9 acres of gated yard storage allowing security, visibility, and traceability to be paramount in our operations, guaranteeing peace of mind throughout transit. Equipped to handle containers of various sizes, including 20′, 40′, 45′, and 53′, our team is adept at managing diverse cargo requirements with precision and efficiency, ensuring reliable transportation solutions tailored to our clients’ needs.

Temp Controlled

We understand the critical importance of maintaining precise temperature conditions throughout the supply chain, especially for sensitive goods such as perishables and pharmaceuticals. Leveraging state-of-the-art refrigeration technology and meticulous temperature monitoring systems, we ensure that cargo remains at optimal condition from pickup to delivery. With our strategic location and unwavering commitment to excellence, we deliver peace of mind and confidence to our clients, knowing that their temperature-sensitive cargo is in safe hands!


Less-than-truckload (LTL) is a shipping service for relatively small loads or quantities of freight. At CT, we have expertise in a wide range of LTL scenarios and our process will save you time and money. LTL shipping can become a hassle with mysterious rate bases, unclear traffic, numerous freight classifications, and unexpected accessorial charges. With CT, you see true and accurate costs from the start.


Over dimensional cargo (ODC) refers to goods or cargo that exceed the standard size and weight limits set for transportation modes like trucks, trains, or ships. When you need specialized heavy hauling equipment, permits, escorts, and other specialized services for your over-dimensional shipment, CT has you covered! We take a consultative approach to your specific oversized load because we understand that each shipment can be different.
