We do so by having a network of over 20,000 carriers that can transport your printed materials, such as rolled paper, printing inks, envelopes, printers, dated materials, etc., on time. We also have the ability to provide zone skipping and utilize multi-stop loads, and we have developed a relationship with USPS that allows us to directly work with their Facility Access and Shipment Tracking (FAST) system.

Whether you are shipping numerous truckload shipments or a few pallets, we can transport your printed materials through our full truck load and less than truckload solutions. For these services, we manage the logistics of your printed materials from pickup to delivery, and we ensure that your freight arrives in perfect condition by partnering with certified and licensed carriers.
Facilitating the logistics of printed materials can be costly with a standard LTL carrier. At TMS, we have the ability to consolidate your shipments and deliver them via zone skipping or multi-stop loads. Our volume consolidation service can offer lower shipping costs and/or improved transit time, and we can deliver from South Florida to all points across the United States.
From tough production demands to last-minute customer orders, you can rely on our expedited shipping to deliver your printed materials on time and avoid production delays or derailed supply chain timelines and operations. We provide expedited and guaranteed transit through truckload carriers, LTL companies, and air freight providers.

How TMS Delivered Forty-Five Multi-Stop Truckloads of Printed Matter During the COVID Pandemic
A company experienced a 300 percent increase in orders due to the coronavirus outbreak, which required it to have transportation services that could accommodate its shipments regardless of market conditions.
Services We Offer
We offer a wide array of transportation solutions that would help drive your business forward from start to finish. We are able to provide this by creating an infrastructure that could offer cost-effective services while delivering cargo on-time and damage-free.
Full Truck Load
Full truck load (FTL) lets you have a dedicated truck, which results in your shipment being delivered faster at a better rate. This is a suitable transportation solution for cargo that can fill a truck so that you can maximize the value of the shipping cost. Additionally, this service can increase the safety of your cargo as it is handled less mid-transit. At TMS, our full truck load service uses our network of experienced carriers who can accommodate large capacities. To find more information about our FTL service, click learn more.
Intermodal is an affordable transportation solution that involves the use of rail, trucks, and/or ships. Because this service uses the railway, it is less costly to execute, which means cost savings for you. This service also uses intermodal containers that are easily transferrable from mode to mode, resulting in less cargo handling and increased safety. At TMS, our intermodal service can service the US, Canada, and Mexico through our network of intermodal providers. To find more information about intermodal, click learn more.
Less-than-truckload (LTL) is a transportation solution that allows you to ship smaller loads of freight at a reasonable price. This service combines shipments from multiple vendors to spread the cost of a whole truck load. This allows you to pay only for the space your shipment is occupying while letting you ship more frequently as needed. At TMS, our LTL service provides multiple carrier and service options, so you can choose the option that best fits your cargo needs. To find more info about our LTL service, click learn more.
LTL-Consolidation is an affordable and safer transportation solution for LTL and Volume-LTL. This service combines shipments from multiple companies that are moving towards a similar destination. Because the shipments are consolidated in a facility and loaded onto an over-the-road truck, there is no handling mid-transit, which results in a safer alternative to LTL. At TMS, our LTL-consolidation service can deliver from South Florida to all points in the United States. To find more info about LTL-consolidation, click learn more.
Air freight is the transportation solution for your time-sensitive and high-value cargo.
