ABF Freight serves all 50 states, plus Canada, Guam, Mexico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic, as of 2015. Additionally, ABF Freight's sister company, ABF Logistics, offers transcontinental shipping to nearly anywhere on the globe.
ABF Freight offers direct service to 98.6 percent of U.S. cities with populations over 30,000, with 98.7 percent of all shipments arriving direct. Some freight heading to more exotic ports, such as San Juan, Puerto Rico or Anchorage, Alaska, is consolidated at another location before proceeding to its final destination.
ABF specializes in LTL shipping, meaning that the company primarily ships containers that are not full. ABF Logistics extends this specialization to international shipping, allowing customers to ship LTL containers by water much faster than other companies that wait for a full load. The two companies work together seamlessly, allowing customers to have one point of contact for the entire shipping experience. Despite this specialization, the companies handle full loads as well.
