SPECIAL SERVICE FREIGHT
Special Service Freight Company is a multi-location, asset-based, ground freight and air-cargo company. We are headquartered in Charlotte, NC, and have been in business for over thirty years.
Our Mission Statement is "To treat our customers as 'Primus inter pares' (first among equals) in a mutually beneficial, respectful and ethical business partnership".
The Company operates thirteen full-service warehouse terminals offering coverage in over two thousand five hundred zip codes centered around twenty cities in the Southeast. Our major operational and handling hubs are Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC.
Warehousing facilities and vehicle fleets are located in five states:
Florida - Orlando, (which also services Tampa), and Miami (who also service Ft. Myers, Key West, Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale), - 1171 zip codes serviced.
Georgia - Atlanta and Savannah, - 300 zip codes serviced.
North Carolina - Asheville, Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh and Wilmington, - 680 zip codes serviced.
South Carolina - Charleston, Columbia (also services Augusta, GA and Myrtle Beach) and Greenville, - 250 zip codes serviced.
Tennessee - Nashville, – 102 zip codes serviced.
We partner with other quality focused companies to provide another nine full service warehouse locations servicing thirteen cities and fifteen hundred zip codes in the Southeast, including:
Alabama - Birmingham, Dothan, Huntsville, Mobil, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa
Florida - Pensacola
Tennessee - Chattanooga and Knoxville (which also services the Tri-City area of Bristol, Johnson City and Kingsport).
Our network is not only linked in a physical way, but is on a common EDI capable Communication and Freight Tracking system, so customers can receive instant EDI messaging updates, Email status updates or, through a secure web portal, view freight location, charges and documentation anywhere in the Southeast at a single glance.
In addition to first/last mile Pick-up and Delivery services, and line hauls from/to Atlanta throughout five Southeastern States we offer many other services inclusive:
Multi-city retail roll-outs;
White glove delivery/asset recovery;
Convention/exposition support, and;
Time-critical hotshots and air charter support.
We operate Customs Bonded Container Freight Stations in Atlanta and Savannah GA, Charleston and Greenville SC, Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh NC, and the entire network fleet is a bonded 'common carrier' for movement throughout the 48 states.
The majority of the fleet consists of air-ride twenty-six Straight Trucks with lift gates, Cargo and Sprinter Vans, and many Stations also operate tractor/trailer units.
All locations are one hundred per cent TSA compliant.
Over the past few turbulent years many large and small cartage companies have suddenly pulled out of a market causing major service failures in their withdrawal, but we have the longevity, experience, broad coverage, asset critical mass and financial sustainability to respond to changes, and be available when you need us.
Use Special Service and you will be secure in the knowledge that you and your customers will not be let down that way.

June 1987: Special Service Freight Company, Charlotte, was established as an agent location for Special Freight Service Company, who operated in the Tri-State area and was headquartered in New Jersey.
Within months of establishing the Charlotte location, the two local managers were forced to incorporate as a new and separate company when the ‘parent’ NJ operation closed down, and so, in August 1987 Special Service Freight Company of the Carolinas, Inc. was born.
Initially servicing the Charlotte air cargo market with just a couple of vans and trucks, the Company began to broaden its presence by establishing licensee locations throughout the Carolinas.
Wilmington, NC opened in October 1988, followed by Greenville, SC and Greensboro, NC the following month, November, 1988.
Five years later, October 1993, Special Service opened an office in Asheville, NC and Columbia, SC began operations in June 1994.
The final expansion under the original owners was the opening of Charleston, SC in July 2003.
Special Service continued operating exclusively in the Carolinas until October 2005 when it was sold by its founders to the current Owner and President, Steve Perriman.
The Company now operates 13 terminals offering service in twenty cities spread across Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina and Tennessee. The Carolinas and Georgia operations are all linked with a dedicated nightly line haul service operated by the company, as are Miami and Orlando.
We have also established a partnership network with other local cartage providers that extend our customer service into Alabama, and deeper into Tennessee and the Florida panhandle. These are also serviced by line hauls out of the main Atlanta hub.
