An East Coast Partner You Can Count On

Since 1980, Lighthouse Transport has been engaged with and retained by customers to offer innovative solutions to their transportation needs.  Our extensive experience solving our client’s problems, gave us a solid expertise on many fronts. We handled many different situations and we  successfully overcame all the challenges.    Our services strengths are in Ground Shipping with a large Warehouse.

Our key differentiation points, compared to others in our industry, is that we:

  1. Provide our clients with a single point of contact to transport their freight into or out of the East Coast.  
  2. We provide near real time updates about the status of the shipment and its location.
  3. We provide you with a worry free customer experience.

Ground Shipping & Warehouse.

Care and consideration are often referenced as qualities of the Lighthouse team. Questions get answered quickly and status updates are immediate. Although our standard working hours are 9am to 5pm, we do handle urgent requests outside of these working hours.  We understand that agility and availability of staff is key to a successful transportation project.  We do not count hours, we count successful projects!
