GlobalTranz – BOL

For freight orders to the rest of the US, please see the article for Daylight Transport – BOL. SuperCloset orders do not usually ship through GlobalTranz, instead use Old Dominion [INSERT LINK] for all Western SuperCloset orders. GSI uses a select number of carriers from GlobalTranz including:

  • R&L Freight
  • Oak Harbor Freight
  • TForce Freight (previously UPS Freight)
