HomeAbout Us

Heavy Weight Transport offers tailor-made solutions to different industries. Every industry has its unique features.


Established in 1983, Inter-Metro Freight, Inc. understands the transportation/shipping industry and is an innovative leader in providing cost effective shipping solutions. We started as an in-house trucking company for one of our affiliate companies draying wine and spirits, but quickly outgrew this capacity. With a dedicated and dynamic sales team and marketing strategy, our market grew to offering our services to freight forwarders, steamship lines, custom brokers, importers, exporters and freight brokers. Using this innovative approach allowed us to grow exponentially into what we are today.

In 2001, the State of New Jersey adopted a law, allowing the transportation of Sealed Heavy Weight Ocean Borne Containers. Shortly after this law passed, we designed and purchased our own specialized chassis and tractors. This has given our customer base the opportunity to increase cargo weight and decrease container volume and the associated shipping costs. It wasn’t long before we took this model national and expanded to have a much larger footprint. Currently, we have operations in; Long Beach, CA; Savannah, GA; Charleston, SC; Elizabeth, NJ; Edison, NJ; Houston, TX and Cookeville, TN!



To positively impact the global community by continually providing exceptional and ethical service in drayage, warehousing and brokerage to importers and exporters in the United States, with a focus on heavy cargo.

Heavy Weight Transport uses an in-house proprietary Transportation Management System (iTMS) for our trucking and drayage operations. Our system allows us to completely automate our internal processes from order receipt to customer service to operations to billing & driver settlements. Additionally, we have an in-house Warehouse Management System (WHMS) linked directly to our iTMS that allows us to manage our transloading inventory without having to log inventory into our storage & distribution software.
All of our trucks are fully equipped with:
Global position satellite (GPS)
Electronic Log Data (ELD)
Camera Surveillance
Technology enhancements for driver route optimization
