About Estes


Estes is a freight service provider that offers all businesses a range of shipping solutions. Estes handles LTL (less-than-truckload) freights in all states within the U.S. They even provide this service in nearby regions such as Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Estes manages to deliver LTL freights by the next day with the help of its broad network of service points. Heavy-volume orders are welcome here at a cheaper rate than the usual LTL change. This can be extremely handy for firms during peak sales seasons. 

The company Estes (also called Estes Express Line) has been around for nearly a century. It was founded in 1931 by a man named W.W. Estes. What started as a small carrier company has become the biggest privately held LTL firm in the U.S. today. It was in 1937 that the company first undertook the name 'Estes.' It's not surprising that the firm's management has been under the Estes family's hand since its inception. 

Crossing the boundaries of only LTL services, Estes formed its very first air freight division in 2003. In 2008, the Estes Express Line expanded to all 50 states within the U.S. By 2012, Estes was not only an LTL service provider but even offered supply chain service. One of its relatively recent service advancements came in 2019 when it started handing out 3PL (third-party logistics). Looking at some of the most updated statistics (February 2022), Estes has more than 6,000 tractors with 30,000 trailers. Their network, too, has over 200 terminals.

Other than the standard LTL service, Estes also provides international shipping for customers. Estes has it covered regardless of where one needs the parcel to be sent. Customers can decide between air, sea, or land to deliver their package. What's even better is that Estes even provides tracking from the start destination to the end. 

For firms that may have complex problems, Estes provides custom logistic solutions. This way, firms can stay one step ahead of their competitors. Further, Estes also has a final mile service that benefits retailers since they can directly outsource product(s) to their customers' doors. With ClickPost's courier API integration, you can access high-quality LTL and shipping services today!
