Cheeseman LLC, a leading provider of transportation and supply chain solutions, offers specialized less-than-truckload ("LTL") transportation services and truckload ("TL") services. Founded in 1948, we have grown to a fleet of over 300 tractors and 940 trailers with multiple service centers. We are dedicated to safety and providing superior service by anticipating our customers’ ever-changing needs and responding to their expectations. This dedication to safety and service has been the driving force behind the company's growth and continued success. 


Cheeseman develops integrated customer solutions, including direct-to-customer deliveries, multi-shipper order consolidation for inbound supplies, and express and time-definite deliveries.  Designed to lower overall supply chain costs, Cheeseman's one-stop shopping focuses on loads between 1,000 to 45,000 pounds (overlapping both the LTL and TL markets) and provides customers with an alternative to traditional LTL and TL carriers that may have strict load requirements. By eliminating multiple transfers and the likelihood of damage through excessive handling, Cheeseman provides a cost-efficient alternative.
