Truckload & Part Truckload

Truckload Express

Full truckload express service is readily available. We use only company-controlled vehicles with location and ETA updates twice a day. This affords our customers the luxury of knowing that a shipment can be picked up or delivered on time anywhere in the U.S. or Canada just by making one phone call.

In addition to dry van and refrigerated trucks, we also have many other types of trailers to accommodate any situation, including: flatbeds, drop decks, lowboys, goosenecks, and logistical trailers.

Team drivers are available for “hot shipments.”

Part Truckload

Part Truckload not Less Than Truckload

PTL, as it is commonly referred to, is predicated on the “Load to Ride” concept. By “marrying” your freight with other customers’ cargo meeting similar requirements, Marathon provides you faster direct “load-to-ride” service at discounted rates. Your freight and our other customers’ freight are picked up and delivered on the same vehicle. Your freight will be handled only once saving you time and money.

Part Truckload Advantages

  • Pay for the percentage of the truck that you use on “load to ride.”
  • Pickups are based on required due dates.
  • Delivery appointments are made in advance of pickups.
  • All freight is transported on a load to ride basis thereby eliminating handling and damages.
  • Because of precise scheduling and consolidation, we are not subject to the same hazards as common carriers:
  • No terminal crossovers. No changes in trucks or drivers.
  • No misplaced or overlooked freight that is commonplace when using common carriers.
