FreightCenter has provided customers of all sizes with logistics services driven by superior service, innovation and technology since 1998. It’s no secret that since then we’ve become leaders in LTL shipping. In fact, 94 percent of FreightCenter’s business is in LTL shipments. As of 2015 we’ve handled nearly 400,000 LTL freight shipments and our freight experts continue to book hundreds more each day.
LTL shipping can be complicated; especially for someone with no logistics experience. There are so many variables to consider for each shipment: the lanes (determined by pick up and drop off locations,) the weight and dimensions, the packaging, freight classification and more. All of these variables can drastically affect the services needed and cost to ship. Our freight experts are trained to simplify this process for shippers and help them make the right logistics decisions for their businesses.
