Contract Routes

Many of our clients have frequent and large shipping needs that require special attention. And it’s important that the trucks are in top condition and drivers making those deliveries not only have strong, specialized skill sets, but that they are familiar with your stores and/or products.You expect a high standard of professionalism, so Spader sets up recurring routes to service our contract clients with its most qualified drivers; and using our best late model trucks. If the route extends beyond the 300 mile radius from Clyde, Ohio that our trucks navigate, we then look to our trucking partners to contract on your behalf.Because our drivers are focused on only your account, your product, and your business, they learn your expectations and deliver based on your timelines and requirements.Partnering with Spader Freight ensures timely delivery by experienced drivers dedicated to serving you.

Regional Routes

Warehousing and Distribution

spader6When it comes to warehousing your products you need a safe, insured, reliable facility. At Spader Freight we offer over 525,000 square feet of warehousing space between our buildings in Clyde, OH and  Tiffin, OH.

Products are handled as though they are our own, with the same care and dedication you put into producing them in the first place. We are transparent in our processes so you are fully aware of the ‘where’s’ ‘why’s’ and ‘how’s of your inventory’s storage.

Inside our distribution centers, our experienced staff can handle any type of consolidation, packaging, and rework requested. When it’s time to distribute your goods, we work directly with you in order to reach your goals.  And because our large fleet is able to deliver regionally and our partnerships give us access to credible nationwide shipping services, your products get where they are needed, safely and on time.


There is a lot more involved in logistical services than merely loading trucks and sending them on their way. Regulations, specialized inventory, efficient route planning, and many other facets involved in the transportation of goods need to be considered and properly prepared for. Our logistic experts have done the research and immerse themselves in the trucking industry so they can put together the right plan for transporting your goods.


At Spader we work to reduce your costs by analyzing appropriate routes and making sure the best trucks for the products you’re shipping are being used. However we can reduce fuel costs and transportation time we will.

And of course, safety is at the forefront for both our drivers and their cargo, and we have a safety record to back it up.

Let us know how we can help you save time and money in your logistical operations.
