Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What Makes Unistar Different?
Unistar Direct is mainly chosen for our expertise in handling high value and sensitive loads. We transport highly sensitive liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry analyzers for laboratories, sensitive, cutting edge electronics used in engineering, and loads requiring climate moisture control.
High value loads also require security planning, including special routing and additional personnel. We provide white glove services, meaning we can pack onsite, unload onsite and clean up too.
Our expertise in logistics means we can make the most efficient use of less than truckload services (LTL) and deliver your shipment affordably, safely and on-time.

What is the Difference Between FLT and LTL?
With less than truckload (LTL) shipping, multiple shipments share space on the same truck. This gives you the ability to ship efficiently without having to accumulate a full truck load (FTL) of products, equipment or parts.
Modern logistics systems and software allow incredibly efficient use of LTL services, reducing costs for shippers in almost all categories.
What should I Look for in Choosing a Shipping Service?
Attention to detail and customer service. Even experience in a particular type of delivery takes a backseat to proper planning, checklist precision and proper communication.
At Unistar Direct, our customer service is responsive and engaging. We listen and work hard to understand the challenges of your unique situation.
This may be your first shipment with us or your fiftieth but only our best effort and excellent follow through can assure it will be far from our last.
