A quote for your shipment will only be as accurate as the information you provide to the carrier or 3PL. Be sure you provide precise measurements, weights, and freight classes.
It can be beneficial to pack your freight on a pallet. Pallets enable easier and faster loading and unloading, improving transit times.
If your freight is longer than eight feet, you may have to pay an overlength fee. Check with your carrier for their policies on overlength cargo.
How fragile an item is will play a big factor in determining its freight class NMFC code, which will influence the cost to ship the item. Each carrier has a different pricing structure, but expect to pay more if your items are fragile.
Reclassifications often occur when the shipper incorrectly applies a freight class or NMFC code to their shipment. If the shipment must be reclassed by the carrier, the cost to ship may go up.
The best way to ensure you are using the correct freight class is to look the item up on the NMFC website.
