TRUCKING & DELIVERY
Our direct access to a global network of trucking companies means that we are able to take the risk out of this potentially challenging part of the international shipping process and avoid errors that can cause delays.
We know each company we work with – we’ve checked their credentials and references, so we can say with certainty that they are the most reliable companies in their country. We brief them on the procedures we have developed, significantly reducing the chance of hiccups along the way.
Our trucking and delivery service for overland freight transport is comprehensive, reliable and efficient, even at short notice. We review and update our rates with our carriers on an ongoing basis, so we can assure you of the best value in this highly competitive market.
We offer worldwide container haulage for full truck load (FTL) or less than a truck load (LTL), suggesting alternative route options to suit your deadlines and budget, ensuring that you optimize both delivery times and costs.
Between rate tables, freight classifications, discounts, accessorials, minimums … understanding what you are being charged for is half the battle.

Freight Classification (“class”) is a National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) standard used to classify and rate commodities (items you are shipping) primarily based on their density and value. Each commodity is categorized into one of 18 classes – lowest being class 50 and highest being class 500 – based on four transportation characteristics (per NMFC): density, stowability, handling, and liability. A commodity’s “transportability” can then be defined and issued a universally known class and rated by Pace Global Logistics accordingly per hundred pounds.
