Our Experience. Our Background.
Established in 1975, Lanter Transport was a truckload division of the Lanter Company. In 2005, Lanter Transport was privately acquired and turned into LTI Trucking Services. Today we are an asset based trucking company and 3PL (third party logistics) provider. We are located in St. Louis, Missouri but have transportation capabilities nationwide. Our team is well-experienced in transportation and is continuously enhancing the way in which we create value for our customers.
Strategic Growth & Success.
Since 2005, LTI has more than doubled in size. With a very controlled and planned out growth strategy, LTI successfully navigated through an economic period that took its toll on the trucking industry. Now we are operating over 550 pieces of equipment as our fleet and logistics divisions move over 60,000 loads per year. LTI’s growth is a testament to our innovative transportation solutions and our quality service.
LTI operates out of a state-of-the-art facility in downtown St. Louis. The office is perfectly setup to optimize the daily operations of the business. Load planners, dispatchers, and customer service representatives work closely to ensure great communication. Numerous monitors display key company metrics to make sure that our performance is consistently top-notch.
All semi tractors and equipment is serviced in a brand new service center located, ten minutes from the St. Louis office. This six bay shop sits upon a 10 acre truck and trailer yard where in-transit freight can be properly secured with fencing, a gate, and surveillance cameras. LTI’s service center professionally and efficiently operates to facilitate the proper and safe upkeep of LTI’s equipment.
