What is hot shot transportation or trucking?
Hot shot transportation is moving time-sensitive and smaller freight volumes using a hot shot flatbed truck and a “medium-duty” pickup truck. It provides a time- and cost-effective solution for shippers that would otherwise deliver their freight via less-than-truckload (LTL) or partial-truckload (PTL) services.
A hot shot carrier is preferred because it can transport to more challenging locations that a massive carrier might not reach.
Hotshot transportation rates
Rates for hotshot cargoes vary greatly based on the driver, the load, the shipper, and the cargo’s urgency. The distance the shipment must cover and amount of freight it must transport will determine the cost of a hot shot load.
Recognize that there may be some haggling and that you must eventually decide what you are willing to accept for a haul. Balancing a few high-paying loads with some low-paying loads to offset deadhead time will help your business run more smoothly.
Hotshot transportation rates per mile
Several factors determine the rate per mile you have to pay. The time of year, the hotshot driver, the type of trucking, the hotshot truck, mileage, shipping route, size, and the kind of freight are only a few.
These rates are typically approximately $1.50 per mile. Some, usually those that are urgent, charge up to $2 per mile. In general, the rates could range from $1 to more than $4.00 per mile.
With that in mind, cutting the going price for flatbed LTL shipment by 67 percent to 75 percent is an easy way to get a preliminary estimate for hot shot service charges.
Why do you need hot shot trucking?
The concept of hot shot freight began as an “excellent idea.” Today, they are one of the most desirable modes of transportation.
Although these services are part of the logistics business, they differ in crucial ways from traditional trucking.
This service is excellent if you are short on time. You may concentrate on the core aspects of your business by outsourcing your delivery to a logistics service. Outsourcing can make significant changes regardless of whether your company is small, medium-sized, or even large.
Hot shot carriers streamline the delivery process for you and provide increased convenience for your clients. Hotshot trucking firms handle a wide range of freight sizes and ensure that the load arrives on time or early.
If you partner with a hot shot transportation company, you will have an expert delivery expeditor to handle the logistics, allowing you to focus on other elements of your business.
Advantages of Hot Shot Transportation
Using a hotshot trucking company has many advantages. Here are a few reasons to use hotshot freight firms to transport your goods and parts.
On-demand delivery: The major benefit of hiring hotshot companies is on-demand delivery. Whatever your needs are, a hotshot truck will go above and beyond to guarantee that your delivery is completed on time.
On-call truck drivers: A hotshot carrier firm will dispatch a truck to your site to pick up your products just minutes after you call. Drivers are on standby at all times, ready to transport your order from the loading dock to its final destination.
Cost-effective: Hiring a third-party logistics business to handle your same-day deliveries might save you much money in the long run. Because you’re dealing with smaller trucks and lower loads, there’s less overhead to cover on hot shot shipping prices.
Time-Saving: Hot shot carrying firms have smaller loads on smaller trucks, which is helpful because you won’t have to wait for a large semi-truck to be loaded with other goods.
We’d be honored to serve you as a valued customer the next time you need something delivered. We urge you to visit us online or call us today to save money and have a good time.
Hot shot LTL
We offer the most adaptable and urgent freight solutions in the marketplace. No matter how much equipment, components, or machinery you need to ship, we’ll be able to meet your needs.
Less than Truckload (LTL) shipping is used when a shipper does not have enough freight to fill a full truckload. If your hot shot loads are less than 12,000 lbs, our hotshot LTL services provide a quick and cost-effective alternative, backed by our dedication to prompt, trustworthy, and professional delivery.
You pay for the space your freight takes up when you arrange LTL shipping. Whether you have enough merchandise to fill a complete truck or not, we’ll locate the best LTL shipping options for you.

Rules and regulations apply to every department and industry. Similarly, the situation is the same when it comes to Department of Transportation (DoT) regulations. The most important regulation in the DOT is weight, which should always be checked, so hot shot truckers should be mindful of the weight they’re hauling.
If the aggregate weight of a vehicle, trailer, and load are less than 10,001 pounds, none of the Department of Transportation’s regulations apply. However, even one pound overweight might cause a slew of regulations, resulting in more effort and expenses.
The following are the rules that hotshot trucks must observe while transporting loads weighing more than 10,001 pounds:
- Maintain a driver’s logbook.
- Bring a fire extinguisher.
- Reflectors are available.
- Follow the Department of Transportation’s driving and resting time limitations.
- Must have a Department of Transportation license plate and a load sticker.
These regulations are only to be followed by some hotshot truckers and can be ignored by others who stay under the weight limit.

Frequently Asked Questions
What tracking system do you use for your trucks?
To keep our clients informed about every stage of the shipping process, we use GPS tracking through satellites and a smart surveillance system for CCTV footage both inside and outside the vehicles.
What's the difference between a less-than-truckload shipment and a full truckload shipment? Which one is best for me?
Less than truckload (LTL) shipments do not fill a complete truck and are coupled with other cargo heading in the same direction to save cost. On the other hand, a full truckload means that your shipment will be the only thing being delivered because it will occupy a full truck. Whatever service you require, you can always rely on us to provide it at a reasonable cost.
How do I find out how long it will take to deliver my cargo?
We would gladly provide you with a time frame estimate once you have provided us with the information about your shipment and its destination.
Is it likely that my package will be damaged?
Absolutely not. We go to great lengths to ensure that all of your goods are protected while in our control. We plan and implement trustworthy safety procedures to prevent hazards and guarantee that our customers never have to worry.
What kind of packaging should I use for hot shot trucking?
This will vary depending on the type of material you’re hauling. To ensure that your things are kept secure throughout travel and speed up the process, they should often be packed in boxes or palletized.
