Local or Drayage

Standard Transportation Services offers motor carrier service on our own equipment. All drivers are company employees, dispatched from our headquarters facility. Both van and flatbed services are available.


We are also available locally for the spotting of carrier trailers at several local manufacturers, freeing the carrier to schedule over-the-road trucks to pick up at their convenience. We also offer local drayage and piggyback service. 

Long Haul

With our own, clean, late model equipment Standard provides long-haul motor transportation between points in the Midwest and Eastern United States. Trailers are 53' x 102" air-ride vans.
