Cargo Service

If you live or work in the north; chances are if you have it - a plane brought it. SFA's ability to move your freight - either a box or a truckload - safely, efficiently and cost effectively is a specialty of ours!

Best rates out there!

SFA's cargo service committment is to move your freight as quickly as possible and according to the following priority:

  • Perishable food items - refrigerated items (fruit, milk, etc.)

  • Perishable food items - frozen items (meat, frozen foods, etc.)

  • Dry goods / food items

  • Remaining dry goods / supplies, furniture, appliances, etc.


It is our goal to move all freight - particuarly food and personal items - within three days. While weather or other factors are the main influence on timing, we are generally able to move priority freight within this timeline.
