North American Steel Alliance Partnership


Program Overview
PLS has set up a transportation agreement with the North American Steel Alliance. Thanks to this partnership, NASA buying members can move their shipments at competitive rates. Additionally, shippers who join the program can get a rebate when selecting PLS as their preferred carrier.

How can you benefit from the program?
The program works for inbound and outbound shipments to your customers and for branch-to-branch transfers. PLS can handle flatbed, van, less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments, and more, and our resources let member companies reduce their overall freight costs.
