Working with both company-owned and owner-operator trucks, Southern also employs a staff of experienced drivers, with the knowledge of what it takes to deliver your merchandise on time, every time.
Third Party Logistics
Southern also operates a third-party logistics department that can move your cargo – via flatbeds, less than truckload (LTL) or full truck loads -- to anywhere in the country, working with truck and rail and utilizing a network of proven regional and long haul LTL common carriers, and all major North American railroads. We develop and plan out the necessary logistics to move your goods to any U.S. destination and can meet all your full trans-load, trucking and warehousing needs.
Southern is one of South Florida’s oldest ICC customs-carrier customs-bonded transportation establishments. This allows us to pick up your bonded merchandise, when in transit to another country or to a bonded warehouse.
Comprehensive Service Program
Southern’s use of Nextel’s direct on-hand radio communication system, between dispatchers and drivers allows us to easily locate your merchandise, in order to provide an accurate arrival time for meeting shipping deadlines.
To complement this process, Southern employs a system of electronic data interchange with all major shipping lines and has online access to South Florida Ports in order to further establish on time availability of all containers. This automated system ensures immediate notification that your product has cleared customs and has been freight released.
Our customers can rest assured that Southern Cartage will meet their transportation needs.
