About Us

Manufacturers, distributors, and importers partner with Universal Traffic Service for strategic transportation management. Our services go beyond rates into value-rich areas such as proactive communication, cost management, and system integration. As a full-service provider, we help you operate more efficiently, grow profits, and satisfy customers.

Three qualities differentiate UTS:


In an industry that has moved largely to automation with limited customer service, UTS stands apart by offering a true full-service partnership. You will have a dedicated UTS account manager, audit specialist, traffic services specialist, claims specialist, and client services specialist. This gives you the highest level of knowledge and support through the entire shipment life cycle.


Our online tools help you plan, see, and measure every aspect of your transportation activity. Proactive tracing gives you an informational advantage while detailed spreadsheets give you granular cost and service data for every shipment.


Every day we strive to prove that UTS delivers more value than any other service provider. This includes regular meetings to review our performance and share new opportunities.
