Larry’s operates as an asset-based drayage provider. We believe making a substantial financial investment in our fleet is one of the cornerstones of our long-term success story. Our late model Mack® trucks are built for drayage and able to perform well in all-weather and railyard conditions. They are the company’s valued assets, and we keep them impeccably maintained and readily available for your next shipment.

We believe there is a formidable difference between an asset-based and non-asset-based intermodal transportation company. We also believe the customer benefits from the asset- based company, especially when comparing ownership, response time, accountability, and financial investment. See the difference for yourself!

Financial Commitment

Our financial investment in top-of-the-line equipment signals our commitment to meeting customers’ expectations over the long-term.
