We ship in boxes.
We don’t think in them.
30 years ago, our founders, Mike Patterson and Meyer Bolnick, discovered a gap in the Minneapolis freight market and seized the opportunity. Today, with our expert load planning optimization, King moves consolidated truckloads and LTL freight lanes by the hundreds each week to every major US market. To ensure better service, less handling and quicker time to market for your company, we never stop searching for new, more efficient ways to move shipments of all shapes and sizes.
Got dock congestion? We can clear that up.
With a local fleet of over 200 53-foot dry van trailers in the metro area and warehouse assets exceeding 300,000 sq. ft., consider us the ultimate “dock sweeper” in the Twin Cities. Our team loves helping clients manage their growth when dock congestion impedes on their efficiency. From fast-growing startups to Fortune 500 companies, we help Minnesota shippers solve their scalability issues and manage their supply chains more efficiently. So as your business grows, we help you figure out where to store your product and how best to ship it.
LTL AND PARTIAL-LOAD CONSOLIDATION
The consolidation equation, solved.
As a tenured freight forwarder and asset-based 3PL based in the Greater Minneapolis area, we serve as a strategic partner, helping clients plan and manage their growing LTL and partial-load consolidation needs with thoughtful, sustainable and reliable service options. Reduced handling. Smarter shipping. Enhanced efficiencies. Increased peace of mind. How’s that for a full load of benefits?
On the road to reducing trucks on the road. As a certified SmartWay Transport partner since 2010, we believe sustainability is just as important as efficiency. In fact, we’re able to accomplish both seamlessly. Using many SmartWay-approved carriers, our PTL program works to lessen the amount of trucks on the road by smartly consolidating shipments.
Custom from here to there.
Beyond consolidation, King offers other custom shipping solutions, like GPS units at the pallet level, so you can track your product online. We also excel at fulfillment and packaging options, so picking, packing and shipping are easy as 1-2-3. And when it’s time to move the freight, we go the distance with special services like critical handling for your time-sensitive shipments.
With King, you get business advantages that go far and wide.
- Less handling
- Reduced claims
- Local cartage
- Speed to market
- Reduced dock congestion
- Weekend availability

USPS DESTINATION ENTRY SERVICES

We’ve been a USPS partner since 1989. In addition to serving the general freight community, we’ve worked hand in hand with the United States Postal Service to deliver direct marketing and inserts to more than 200 USPS locations each week. We help mail owners with customized and automated shipment integration, detailed tracking and tracing, plus surface visibility of USPS pallet scan information.
