Volume LTL Industry Leadership

Since 1987, Sunset Pacific Transportation has served as the industry leader for Volume LTL. We work with freight brokers, 3PL’s and directly with shippers to consolidate multiple shipments from different companies into one truckload. Businesses of all kinds with smaller loads benefit from our Volume LTL model by only paying for the space they use in a truckload. At the crossroads of the global import/export industry on California’s West Coast, we provide:

  • Sunset Pacific Transportation is a transportation carrier based in Chino, California. We specialize in Partial Truckload and Volume LTL shipments originating in California, Nevada and Arizona with destinations across the United States. Our Partial Truckload solution is also known as Volume LTL, LTL Consolidation and Shared Truckload in some markets.

  • When you work with us for your next Partial Truckload shipment, you can expect to get rates comparable to LTL but without a service sacrifice. In fact, your freight originating out of California is only ‘touched’ once at our Chino, CA warehouse before being shipped directly to its final destination. That means you get the best of LTL combined with all the service benefits of Truckload.

  • Same day local pick up in Southern CA!
