Our Services

We’ve got you covered – both coming and going

United Motor Freight offers you full-service hauling and trans-loading capability and expertise. We’re the only hauling company in the greater Seattle-Tacoma-Everett area that’s got you covered – whether you’re importing or exporting cargo.

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 make all the arrangements to have the cargo transported inland to its final destination – or – do everything in the reverse order. 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 — all with one phone call!
