Alvan Motor Freight, Inc. is a Midwestern regional motor carrier that transports a wide variety of commodities. Alvan's primary focus is handling time-sensitive LTL freight that requires superior levels of service. Next day delivery is our specialty and nobody does it better.

In addition to the above, Alvan offers a number of custom designed products tailored to directly address our customer's needs. Recognize that each program Alvan develops will be unique and designed to specifically provide the optimal solution for your firm.
A rapidly growing segment of Alvan's product mix is design and implementation of specialized programs of this nature. We start out with a "clean sheet" mindset, working together with customers to jointly develop the most cost effective and service efficient program. Variables we consider include, but not limited to; vendor locations, shipment scheduling, consolidation location and transit time requirements.

Managed LTL Programs
Take control of your inbound LTL material flow process with Alvan's personalized "Managed LTL Program". Alvan's unique approach has generated broad-based customer approval by providing substantial service and cost improvements. The "Managed LTL Program" concept combines the discipline and scheduling advantages of sweep or milk runs with the geographic scope and flexibility of the Alvan LTL system. Contact Alvan for a formal presentation on the "Managed LTL Program" to completely understand the many advantages material flow management will provide to your company.

Similar in both approach and design development to our consolidation services, Alvan has significant expertise in distribution, another rapidly growing product segment for Alvan. With our "clean sheet" perspective, the possibilities are limitless.

As the trend towards globalization spreads, cross-border and other international services will become more important. Alvan has significant internal expertise in the international marketplace, working closely with a wide variety of multinational corporations. Our international programs and services range from the traditional to the extremely unique and innovative.
