LESS THAN TRUCKLOAD (LTL) 

Access LTL rates that are 80-90% off every national and regional LTL provider’s base rate. 

Competitive pricing combined with Zipline’s institutional knowledge of every grocery, c-store, club store, and food service channel delivery requirements means your product delivers the way your customer wants it to, at the best available rate in the marketplace.

FULL TRUCKLOAD 

We have the right capacity to meet your most challenging shipping needs with our nationwide network of 25,000+ food grade and retail-qualified carriers. 

As the only Top 100 3PL to specialize in consumer goods, Zipline offers SFA members with the same buying power and capabilities as a big-box brokerage but with niche expertise and personalized service only available from a boutique provider.

INTERMODAL 

Save big and cut emissions by transferring eligible truckload lanes to rail. With as little as one added day for transport, you can save hundreds per order.

PORT AND DRAYAGE 

Need reliable service for imports and transfers? Zipline has experience moving thousands of containers in and out of all major ports. 

We can help you find flexible capacity for your container and warehouse moves. We can coordinate all carrier communication and scheduling on your behalf, saving you headaches and time.

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED 

Temp-controlled transport is challenging with tight capacity and potential for costly errors. Zipline can transform your experience with refrigerated trucking. We take on the burden of sourcing food-safe capacity and ensure carriers maintain proper temp ranges and paperwork. 

Whether looking to move refrigerated LTL or frozen rail, we can provide you with the highest level of service in temp controlled transportation.

CONSOLIDATION 

If your shipment volumes are growing, we can identify where your orders have consolidation potential, helping to reduce spend and increase due date adherence.

See how a manufacturer of pork rinds was able to reduce its LTL orders from 20-30 per month to just 5-10 per month through consolidation. View case study here.

FREIGHT TRACKING

Never again wonder about the status of your order. Our freight visibility platform and shipment tracking tool, The Summit, provides SFA members with illustrated real-time updates about the location and status of their orders.
