What Are the Advantages of Using a Freight Terminal?

  • Cost—Your freight cost will be much lower. When you bring your freight to the carrier’s main hub or distribution site, you avoid extra fees for accessorials like lift gates.
  • Speed—Your freight moves faster. A direct hand off to the carrier ensures your freight will be the next to go when a truck arrives.
  • Assurance—Your freight is visible. When fewer trucks are required (meaning less handling), the chances of your freight being lost or misplaced is dramatically reduced.

What Do You Need to Use a Freight Terminal?

Your FreightCenter Bill of Lading is all you need to use a terminal. Your freight agent will advise you to print several copies of your shipping label to affix it to each unit or piece of freight. If you have four pallets, you will need to print four copies and affix a label to each tightly wrapped
