About United Motor Freight

United Motor Freight, Inc., headquartered in Seattle Washington, has been in business since 1981 providing transportation, logistical and warehousing services to its many customers throughout the United States and Canada. We operate CFS facilities in both Seattle and Tacoma.

Why choose us?

Unique Capabilities

We do what no one else in the greater Seattle area can do: get your cargo off the vessel, haul it directly to one of our Container Freight Station yards, trans-load the ocean equipment (flat racks, open tops, dry boxes, etc.), and arrange to have the cargo transported to its final destination. While other companies can haul your cargo from the port to a CFS and maybe also trans-load and reload, only United Motor Freight is equipped to go the extra mile and deliver your cargo to or pick it up from your customer’s door!

We have what you need

  • Bonded Container Freight facilities
  • Heavy lift and specialized rigging
  • Stationary 50-ton whirley crane, allowing us to trans-load super-heavy cargo
  • Forklifts ranging in capacity from 5,000 to 140,000 pounds for heavy lift and machinery moves
  • Removable gooseneck trailers for hauling heavy machinery and project cargo

UMF has always gone the extra mile to help ensure that all our needs have been met, and I greatly appreciate the great work they do. Their staff is friendly and professional and I would not trade them in for the world.
