Local Cartage - Pick Ups & Deliveries

Local Air Freight Pickups & Deliveries

Porreca Freight has been operating in and around Chicago (ORD) airport since its inception.  We know air freight.

We can pick up your freight (or drop it off) at any of these area airports where we make regular pickups and deliveries:

•O’Hare International Airport (ORD)

•Chicago Midway Airport (MDW)

As one of the top air freight cartage agents in the O’Hare (ORD) and Chicago Midway (MDW) area you can rely on Porreca Freight to get your shipment to its destination on time and in tact.

Porreca Freight drivers are screened and trained on all of the latest TSA mandates and rules regarding the movement of air freight, tendering air freight to airlines and other IACs, and for the movement of screened freight to and from Certified Cargo Screening Facilities.


Pick Up & Delivery Zones

• All pickups & deliveries are dispatched and rated by commercial zone. These zones usually relate to how far a city is from the nearest major airport and how many commercial businesses are located in that area.
• Pick up and delivery companies are often referred to as cartage companies or agents.

In the Chicago area for example, when a pickup is called in to us for a shipper located in Elgin, the city of Elgin is serviced as an Area D according to our tariff and points list. This is because Elgin is located 35 miles from O’Hare (ORD) and does not have as many commercial businesses as say Rosemont. Rosemont is an Area A.
If a point not noted as an serviced area, we may be able to service it but there may be additional days required to service these points and additional fees may apply. .


Hot Shot Expedited Deliveries

Do you need to get your freight there in a hurry?  Are deadlines looming, critical parts halting production lines, or do you have last minute trade show materials that have to be at the convention center now? Porreca Freight is a cartage company that specializes in getting your freight to you as fast as possible.  Across town or across the country, we have our drivers on the road 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

If you have a special piece coming in on a flight, we can have our drivers meet it at the airport and drive it directly from the airport terminal to its destination.  We can pick up trade show items right off the event floor at the convention center or hotel and deliver them non-stop to your next show.

Whatever it takes, we'll get it there on time and in the same condition as when it was shipped.


Local Chicago Area Commercial Trucking

If your trucking needs do not involve air freight, but rather point to point trucking within the Chicago metropolitan area, Porreca Freight is here to help.


Local Residential Pick Ups & Deliveries

Our team of trained drivers can deliver your special order items directly to your residence.  Lift gate service is available, as well as uncrating and trash removal service.  Multi person teams are also available should your freight be fragile and difficult for one person to move easily and safely.

Whether your delivery is 3 pounds or 3,000 pounds, a single box or multiple palletized skids, we can deliver it to your door (or inside your door), safely and on time.


White Glove Services

We can handle the movement of your high-value and fragile items with the care you'd expect from a specialty carrier. From un-packaged items to odd-shaped items to that one-of-a-kind item you'd only trust to Porreca Freight, we'll always be there with a highly-skilled, well-trained team of professionals.


Trade Show & Convention Center Pickups & Deliveries

Trade shows present specific and unique challenges, and unless your carrier is well versed in the ins and outs of trade show deliveries and pickups, you could find yourself out in your booth space with no exhibit.

Porreca Freight is well versed in the intricacies of trade show logistics.  We can take away the stress of logistical issues and allow you to concentrate on the show itself.

We offer  dock to dock service which means that there is less exposure to potential damage.  We'll pick up your display from your headquarters or from your last show and deliver it directly to the dock of the next show.

Should there be a significant amount of time from one show to another we can store your exhibit in our warehouse and ensure that it is delivered to your next trade show on time and in the condition that we originally received it.

Our drivers are experienced and extremely familiar with the procedures for drop off and pick from trade show facilitiess and can ensure on-time check-in and proper handling of your exhibit materials.

As with any trade show delivery or pick up waiting time charges do apply.

Whether you're moving a pallet or a truckload, Porreca Freight has the experienced personnel necessary to take the worry out of your trade show transportation and trade show shipping.
