Freight Types

At Bridgeway, we connect you with the best specialty freights professionals and transportation options for your industry. Our platform is purpose-built for addressing each industry’s unique needs and challenges. And our team has a proven track record of solving the toughest transport problems with passion and expertise. Bridgeway has been a go-to partner for shippers across industries for nearly 50 years.

Oversized

Moving oversized freight—heavy or oversized cargo—is a specialty freight service Bridgeway excels in. Transporting goods that exceed the standard size and weight limits for regular shipping, including items like industrial machinery, construction equipment, large vehicles, wind turbine components, cranes and more, requires niche expertise.  Leverage Bridgeway’s extensive knowledge of permitting, route planning, escorts, equipment needs and insurance requirements to successfully transport your oversized, over-dimensional and heavy freight. 

Renewables

Moving wind turbines is a complex and coordinated effort requiring careful planning, specialized equipment, and a dedicated team of transportation professionals to ensure renewable energy systems are transported safely. Bridgeway offers the equipment, experience, and guidance needed to transport turbines and their components.

Utilities

Transporting utility poles as freight requires careful planning, adherence to safety regulations, and coordination with transportation experts to ensure a smooth and safe journey for these oversized, essential materials. Bridgeway has the equipment and experience needed to move poles of varying lengths and 

Oil and Gas

Fracking, a method of extracting oil and natural gas from the ground, requires moving pipes, drilling equipment, and sand to and from sites. We know the ropes of fracking sites and can assist with the careful logistics planning needed to efficiently move goods to and from them. 

Transporting government freight (cargo owned or managed by a government entity) —includes a wide range of know-how. With entities registered in the Federal Government’s System for Award Management (SAM), Bridgeway is authorized to move governmental freight. Our teams understand the extra driver vetting and base access requirements for the Department of Defense (DoD), as well as the urgency and prioritization of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) freight.

International freight refers to the transportation of goods and cargo between countries or across international borders. It is an essential component of global trade and commerce, facilitating the movement of products and materials between nations.


Ports and Drayage

Our work within ports and drayage has afforded us contacts and best practices to navigate international freight efficiently. We ensure that our motor carriers are compliant with the Uniform Intermodal Interchange and Facilities Access Agreement (UIIA), our drivers are certified with TWIC cards or escort services, and we thoroughly understand port operations and tractor trailer requirements.   

Border Crossing

In addition to international freight that arrives by ship into national ports, we have experience with North American freight that moves in and out of Canada and Mexico. Understanding the risks and how to avoid them, as well as having access to near-border yards allows us to help our shippers move their cargo where it needs to go. 

Manufacturers need the support of freight professionals to deliver raw goods to their facilities and finished products to end customers. Bridgeway has experience with a variety of manufacturing types, but has extensive experience working with integrated steel mills, mini mills, and service centers in steel manufacturing. Steel coils, sheets and other steel products often require specialized equipment and training for their transport. We have the trailers and owner-operators needed to move these payloads.  

manufacturing

The construction sector leans heavily on trucks to transport raw materials, construction vehicles, prefabricated components, tools and supplies. Raw materials may include lumber, brick, steel and concrete, while equipment can range from forklifts to giant cranes. Construction companies rely on Bridgeway Connects™ transportation services to help minimize construction delays and disruptions.

Consumer goods freight, including food and beverage products, typically flow through large distribution centers, requiring a solid understanding of how the distribution networks function. This includes the need for appointments and repositioning of freight on trucks as the freight reaches end points. Our experienced agents and owner-operators can navigate this distribution system with ease.  

consumer goods

Temperature-controlled freight, also known as refrigerated or reefer freight, refers to the transportation of goods and products in specialized temperature-controlled containers or vehicles to maintain a specific temperature range throughout transit. This transportation method is crucial for industries that require strict temperature control to preserve the quality and safety of their products, including freight that is subject to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Bridgeway freight professionals leverage years of experience with reefer freight to assist shippers in protecting their freight while in transit. 

temperature controlled

Hazardous materials freight—often known as hazmat freight or dangerous goods transportation—involves shipping and handling materials and substances that are considered hazardous due to their potential to cause harm to people, property, or the environment if not properly managed. Our hazmat specialists understand the importance of classification, identification, regulation and compliance when assisting a shipper with the movement of hazardous materials.
