Special Services

Our Special Services show The Dayton Difference in action. They can be the little things that make a big difference later down the road. Or they can be the extra peace of mind that makes your company rest easier. From customized service to extra guarantees to specialized equipment that further protects your shipment, Special Services are the extras that our customers have come to rely on for a premium shipping experience.

Deck Bar Trailers

To reduce freight damage during loading and transport, you can receive extra protection with Dayton Freight’s deck bar trailer configuration. Most of our trailers are equipped with deck bars that work horizontally and vertically to ensure freight safety. Adjustable in height, and with generous weight allowances, deck bars provide the best use of space while preventing shipments from being loaded on top of one another. This special service is just another example of Dayton Freight’s commitment to safety and claims-free transportation.

Ideal for locations without docks, our well-maintained liftgates are an effective way to handle freight. They are invaluable during loading and unloading, and increase our ability to pick up and deliver your freight quickly and damage-free.

Home Delivery

Residential area delivery is an option for you, thanks to a variety of equipment. Straight trucks and liftgates make it possible to maneuver into neighborhoods or tight storage areas. Whatever your needs, or final destination, Dayton Freight can deliver.
