Services Overview

Black Horse Carriers is engaged with many leading companies across North America and across multiple verticals including Food and Perishables, Bakery and Dairy, Retail and Consumer Goods, and Automotive and Industrial.

We deliver exceptional customer service while providing strategic planning and efficient supply chain solutions for the 21st Century, and we have a clear understanding of the importance of safety and compliance. Our ongoing investment in people, equipment and technology ensures effective supply chain solution design and successful fulfillment and delivery execution. Black Horse Carriers totally understands what customers' needs are. We are able to focus on the goals at hand then tailor a specific plan for each individual company to get the job done, efficiently and within budget.

All of the Transportation and Logistics Solutions we bring to markets are executed with Black Horse Carriers Company Drivers, and never with owner-operators, agents, or leased drivers.

Going into 2016 with 61 terminal operations in the United States, staffed by more than 2,400 professionals, Black Horse Carriers has the scope and scale to successfully develop supply chain solutions for Retail, Industrial, Grocery, Bakery, Dairy and Automotive businesses that have challenging service requirements that common carriers and most dedicated carriers would be unable or unwilling to manage; such as: 

  • Timely delivering custom caskets in belly-box equipped 28 foot doubles;
  • Getting printing ink delivered (in tanker trailers) at the right time, at the right temperature, loaded into the right containers with the right color, at precisely the right volume, to printing plants across the eastern United States;
  • Performing unattended deliveries of fresh baked pies (for a well-known restaurant chain) to over 150 restaurants using 48 and 53 foot refrigerated trailers equipped with hydraulic rail-lift gates; and
  • Providing next day delivery, five days per week, of automotive service parts to twelve dealers representing the two largest global luxury vehicle manufacturers, with a single delivery route encompassing a one-way distance of over 1,000 miles, using dedicated relay drivers in day cabs, rather than sleeper teams.

Being a privately owned company, Black Horse Carriers has the ability to act quickly and decisively, implementing solutions that benefit our customers. We minimize the red tape and get right to the heart of the problem, and develop a solution, enabling our customers to keep their attention on the elements of their businesses that make them successful, leaving the driving to Black Horse Carriers.
