- Are you looking for a company that can provide both freight forwarding and 3PL (third-party logistics) services?
- Do your freight needs go beyond the continental US and into Hawaii, Guam, Alaska, and
- Are you tired of a “one size fits all” approach for freight, and ready for a supply chain partner that will deliver a custom solution for your business?
- Approved has you covered, from coast to coast, and from one side of the world to the other.
Global resources, local teams, all major freight services
Part of The DeWitt Companies — which includes DeWitt Move Worldwide, Royal Hawaiian Movers, Royal Alaskan Movers, and DeWitt Guam — Approved has been providing freight and 3PL services since 1991.
A first choice for companies of all sizes and from all major vertical markets, Approved stands apart from other providers by truly eliminating the middleman.
With the ability to leverage both the global resources of parent company and our partners, and our local assets and expertise on Hawaii, Guam and in Alaska, Approved can deliver improvements in both expediency and cost-efficiency moving your cargo from its point of origin to its final destination.
Approved’s freight services include:
Why pay for space you won’t use? Approved offers reliable LCL (less-than-container load) freight shipping — also called LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping — for cargo that doesn’t require an entire container.
Maximize ROI through our FCL (full-container-load) or FTL (full-truck-load) shipping expertise, and benefit from a streamlined process designed to increase value.
- Hawaii Freight
With a sister company in the Hawaiian islands (Royal Hawaiian Movers), Approved is able to transport goods to and from Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island at one of the most competitive rates available.
Shipping to Guam? Approved’s sister company, DeWitt Guam, makes it easy and cost-effective. From planning a shipment to offloading at its final destination, we simplify transporting freight to and from Guam.
If you need to add air shipping services to your supply chain, Approved can help do it for less by reducing or even eliminating the handling and warehousing costs attached to ocean and road freight services.
With local teams, global resources, and a network of partners and agents across all continents, no company is better equipped to address all your international freight needs, through the air, and across the oceans, railways, and roads of the world.
In freight transportation, it’s often the first mile and the last mile (from port to warehouse, or warehouse to the customer) that’s a challenge — not for Approved as we offer pick-up and delivery services of LCL and FCL shipments (a.k.a., drayage) at the most granular level.
With professional teams at all parts of the process — people who understand the regulations and best practices — Approved is experienced, certified, and an ideal freight services partner for hazardous materials.
Reducing both costs and risk
Being a reliable freight services provider and a robust 3PL partner requires an ability to both predict and overcome the challenges that often arise (e.g., international customs), and to concurrently identify cost-saving opportunities across your supply chain. But neither matters much if your cargo does not arrive intact.
Approved’s industry-leading loss and damage record ensures efficient, affordable, and risk-free freight services. Our team of shipping professionals puts safety and security first, always, ensuring your cargo arrives on-time and undamaged.
This integrity extends to costs. We will work with you to maximize space (in shipping containers, warehouses, trucks, and more) to ensure you pay for nothing you don’t absolutely need. We’ll cover every possible parameter — dimensions, weight, mode of transportation, shipping class, timing, and more — to keep your costs as low as possible.
And the fact that we are able to eliminate the middleman across the US and most of the world helps drives costs down dramatically.
More than Freight Services
Approved is an award-winning 3PL company, specializing in logistics. Whether your freight needs are basic (such as a couple of pallets being shipped a few hundred miles to an industry trade show) or complex (such as transport and removal of hazardous materials), Approved has the teams and talent to cover every step.
Our shipping and logistics professionals can help from the initial planning stages to final offloading. We can pick-up your goods, consolidate them at our facilities, and carry them straight to your door. And if you need warehousing, project management, or most any other freight services, we have both the flexibility and experience to serve you.
As your supply chain partner, our mission is to provide you with an end-to-end solution that saves you time and money and frees you up to focus on your business rather than your freight.
