Commercial & Industrial
Freight – Domestic and International Services

Since 1984, customers with commercial and industrial shipments have used our domestic & international freight services. Whether you’re dealing with oversized shipments moved from an inland point over the road with permits and escorts to a port / airport, or looking for a trucking network for a full or partial truck load, ETC International Freight System has custom solutions to fit your needs.
“One of our most gratifying projects that we ever undertook was helping to charter a full commercial aircraft with relief goods to Central America. We liaised with the airlines and dealt with management at the charity, coordinating schedules, and also the receiving, prepping & delivery to the tarmac in Venezuela.

The chance to work with extraordinary people dedicated to helping others was exciting and morally fulfilling. Our staff was able to personally see our work help people in need – we saw the relief agency dispatch our shipment of hospital beds, dry food, blankets, tents, and more. It was utterly uplifting.Seeing how these items benefited families in need gave us an indelible sense of responsibility, which carries our family owned business to do the best possible work we can.”
