Tips for preparing your LTL Shipment

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.

Additional services like liftgates, driver assist, and residential delivery can result in added charges on your freight invoice.
