What is Hotshot Delivery?
Hotshot delivery services started as far back as the 1970s and are common in shipping today. They involve hauling smaller, time-sensitive shipments for a singular customer, generally to a single location.
The average size load for hot shot delivery is small enough to fit vehicles like vans or box trucks. At Morris Trucking, we use vans for these runs and have many of them in our onsite fleet, ready to go.
Typically, these deliveries are time-critical, and we understand the need to bring these essential products to a job site or facility as quickly as possible. This can mean saving a lot of time and money for the end-user of the products being delivered.
There are three significant benefits of using Morris Trucking hot shot trucking services: speed, exclusivity, and cost.
The drivers we use at Morris Trucking are SPEED specialists. They understand the urgency involved in their work. Unlike expeditated shipping, hot shot trucking can be as fast as you need it to be. Just let us know how soon we need to get your single load to its destination. Our vans can move at far greater speed and flexibility than their larger brothers, the big rig trucks.
We pride ourselves on taking action and can get a van moving to you shortly after you contact us with the details of the delivery job. We understand and respect deadlines.
We limit our hotshot deliveries to working with single customers per load delivery. Therefore, we don’t deliver the products of multiple clients in one hot shot delivery, so you won’t be waiting for us to have enough freight to fill a truck as is typical with deliveries using larger trucks. Instead, you’ll have a dedicated driver to handle your job exclusively.
When you use Morris Trucking’s hot shot services, costs will be far less than shipping items in larger trucks with full-sized loads. Our vans are much cheaper to run than large trucks, so our operating expense for these runs is significantly lower, and we can pass that saving onto you. When moving a small shipment, hot shot delivery is the far more cost-effective way to go.
The world we live in today is fast-paced. We understand the need for your shipments to keep up to speed. No matter where you need us to deliver your products within the 500-mile radius of our facility, we’re there for you and will get the job done quickly, safely, and at the best cost possible.
