About Us

Northwest Shippers was founded on January 1, 1990. Our business model was based on the belief that if we created a company committed to serving people, we would be successful. It's easy to win business based solely on price, but then the question becomes " can price deliver success"?

In a market where time, cost and service are major concerns, you need to do more than focus on price. We developed a program that enables us to deliver tons of freight, on schedule, and in good condition. Our main goal is to make our customers successful so they continue to grow their business. After 30 years, we've learned this model works as we continue to maintain our commitment to serving people well. As a result, we service most of the major steel companies in the Northwest and Southwest regions.

Speciality Load

NSI Has Carved a Niche in the Market, specializing in LTL.
Northwest Shippers specialize in high-end metal and equipment, as well as other flatbed LTL products. By consolidating loads on the back of a flatbed, and not in a warehouse, Northwest Shippers delivers your freight on time and in good condition. Your freight is handled by the shipper and receiver of the product. Less handling translates into less damage to products being transported. No warehousing delivers your freight on time. Say no to warehousing and transloading and give Northwest Shippers an opportunity to show you a better way to get your LTL to you on a full load schedule.

NSI Will Track Your Freight Daily.
Northwest Shippers will track your freight daily. On time delivery is important. If we discover your freight is off of schedule we can make the needed corrections while the truck is in route. Tracking is key to on time deliveries.

NSI Will Earn Your Trust.
We understand that trust is earned. You earn trust by handling difficult problems. Trust us with your difficult freight. We want to earn your trust before we go on to bigger and better opportunities within our relationship.

NSI Consolidates on the Back of Trucks, not in a Warehouse.
Two of the biggest problems with partial freight starts with the wrong equipment. You don’t need a warehouse which leads to excess handling, and storage of material intended for delivery. You certainly do not want flatbed freight loaded in a closed van. That creates additional damage, as well as unsafe loading, and unloading conditions. Northwest Shippers consolidates on the back of a flatbed, or conestoga not in a warehouse. Makes a lot of since when you think about it. On-time delivery in good condition.

NSI Can Find Answers to Your Complicated Freight Problems.
Unlike your kids, we will take out the trash! Difficult freight requires time, and the right price. It also requires attention to detail. Call us with your most difficult partial freight needs. We will find solutions.

NSI Will Handle Your Full Loads Too!
Because of our name, Northwest Shippers, customers assume that we only handle freight in and out of the Northwest region. This is a myth. Northwest Shippers handles freight in all 48 states, Canada, as well as Alaska. Another common misunderstanding is that Northwest Shippers is only a partial freight company. This is also a myth. Full loads are easy. We can handle your freight—full load or partial.
