10 Years of Shipping Success: What You Should Know About GPX Shipping through Busfreighter.com

Most people know Greyhound’s reputation as a bus service. Few realize the company is also home to a (very) competitive shipping service.

For over 10 years, Busfreighter.com and Greyhound Package Express (GPX) have partnered on select shipping services perfect for small apartment and dorm moves as well as business shipping of oversized, irregular, un-palletized and multi-box shipments cross country. We frequently get asked what the difference is between the two companies. While Busfreighter.com is the only authorized reseller of GPX services, GPX is a division of Greyhound Lines, Inc. - transporting over one million packages annually through its network of intercity buses. Together, we have nearly 30 years combined experience getting your packages where they need to go.

The Bus Giant’s Alter Ego

Greyhound Package Express travels everywhere Greyhound goes – nationwide to 3,800 destinations and counting. It is a cost-effective alternative to ground and air shipping companies. Greyhound has multiple daily departures to many locations that makes it convenient to send time-sensitive parcels. Many terminals are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Greyhound Package Express has three different service levels:

  • Standard Service – This is for non-time critical shipments. Packages ship when space is available. The service provides door-to-door, counter-to-counter or a variation of the two. Pick-up and drop-off are during business hours at the bus terminal of choice.
  • Priority Service – For time-sensitive shipments, GPX offers a 100% money-back guarantee that a shipment arrives on schedule. The package goes on the next scheduled bus to the shipment destination. This service is only available for delivery of fewer than 800 miles. Various door-to-door and counter-to-counter options offered.
  • Direct Drive – This is GPX’s fastest, most specialized service. It utilizes dedicated vehicles delivering to specific routes. It is only available on packages traveling within 400 miles from the pick-up terminal. Estimated time of arrival is based on drive time and determined at booking. Only door-to-door service is available for this option.

Military, Veteran, Student Discounts

GPX utilizes the unused cargo space beneath Greyhound buses. The service is perfect for individual packages with a maximum weight of 100 lbs. and dimensions of 29-inches x 47-inches x 82-inches.
