Exclusive use trucking is a term logistics companies use to describe a shipping method where the shipper requests exclusive use of the truck, meaning their freight is the only freight on the truck from origin to destination.
TDS uses only exclusive use trucking when transporting our customer’s equipment from one data center to another. It’s an important note, because unless specified, any of a myriad of alternatives are possible.
A variety of other factors must also be considered when choosing the right shipping method. A good general rule of thumb when shipping high value equipment is that trucking is far cheaper and almost always quicker when the destination is less than 1200 miles away. The US Department of Transportation has very specific regulations surrounding the number of hours a driver is allowed to operate a vehicle in a specific time period. For this reason, TDS often uses multiple drivers to accommodate straight through driving and ultimately a faster and less risky delivery for our customers.

Maybe you're just starting to plan your data center relocation.
The TDS data center relocation methodology follows a specific process to ensure smooth and successful data center relocation events.
Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Re-Certification is clouded with fear, uncertainly and doubt and for good reason.
IT organizations need a platform built specifically for planning, managing, and executing migrations, recovery events, M&As and other transformation projects, end-to-end.
Making decisions using data that is pieced together through a combination of spreadsheets, data exports, and email messages doesn’t provide project teams with a comprehensive understanding of compliance, security and other business requirements. That’s why TDS enhanced its rules engine, making it easy to write simple scripts that apply business rules to data, ensuring that the results will be aligned with business goals.
We continue to evolve TransitionManager’s capabilities, focusing first on what problem we are trying to solve for the customer. For enterprise architects and cloud professionals, finding the right information and leveraging the variety of tools available to plan and manage IT transformation projects is challenging and complex.
