These horses were savvy delivery entrepreneurs but they didn't have the all the modern delivery resources we have today at WhiteStar - like our fleet of bobtail trucks, straight trucks, tractors, van trailers, flatbeds ready to zip your freight from Point A to Point B at a moment's notice.

This way you have the economies of scale working in your favor. Our services span the entire supply chain journey including long-haul trucking, rail or container ship.

It's using more than one mode of transportation to move goods where they need to go, on time. I clearly remember taking a motorcycle to Tampa airport, stepping into an electric tram to the terminal, boarding a plane to New York, getting on a bus to the train station, riding the train to Grand Central Station, and finally taking a taxi to my destination near Times Square.
