Do you haul hazardous materials?

Yes, we will need to know the UN number to quote. We are authorized to haul all classes of hazardous materials, but will not haul class 7 with a transport index higher than 1.0.

What is the difference between live load and drop-and-pick for container shipping?

A live load means that the driver will pick up a container and take it to a destination and wait until the container is loaded before transporting the container back to the rail or shipping line. A drop and pick means the driver will pick up a container and drop it at a destination for loading and come back and retrieve the container at a later time for delivery to the rail or shipping line.
