Providing ample lead time for carriers and securing capacity as soon as possible can vastly improve your ability to meet your transit time goals.
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.
A valid LTL tracking number is typically the PRO number or BOL number for your shipment. This information can be found on your bill of lading and can be used to look up the last recorded location of your shipment.
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.
