Why Flock Freight?

Shared Truckload

Unlock the benefits of full truckload by sharing trailer space in one multi-stop full truckload. We are the only logistics provider that guarantees your freight moves as a shared truckload with FlockDirect.

Technology-Enabled Service

Technology should make things easier and more cost-effective for your business. Our proprietary algorithms optimize your route, and we have the technical expertise to integrate with your systems.

Carbon Neutral

FlockDirect shipments move via shared truckload, skipping the inefficient LTL hub and spoke system and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 40%. We take the remaining 60% and offset it by supporting projects with Carbonfund.org, making FlockDirect the only carbon neutral shipping option available to shippers at no extra cost. 

Our Difference

Using cloud-based computing technology, we combine multiple shipments that are moving along the same route into one shared truckload. We get your shipment to its destination damage-free and on time, every time.
