Be sure the information you provide for your freight quote and bill of lading is accurate, including the description and dimensions of your shipment, the addresses of the pickup and delivery locations, the date and time of the pickup, and any accessorials you need.
A freight quote is just that: a quote. It is only as accurate as the information supplied to obtain it, and it is not guaranteed to be the final price you will pay for your shipment.
To avoid unnecessary rebills, make sure that you carefully record the weights, dimensions, and freight class of your cargo for your paperwork, indicate any accessorials you may need to complete a shipment, and communicate with your carrier and consignee to avoid any delays, missed pickups, or missed delivery windows.
A scammer may provide a fake tracking number to a customer to stall and shift blame for a missing package to the shipping service. In reality, your purchase never existed. To protect yourself from online shopping scams, confirm a site is legitimate before placing an order.
Cargo insurance and freight insurance cover shipments transported via water, air, road, and rail. In the context of LTL shipping, cargo and freight insurance are used interchangeably.
While the terms are often used interchangeably, traditionally speaking, freight refers to goods moved overland via truck or train, while cargo refers to goods moved overseas via ocean carriers or aircraft.
