FreightCenter excels at matching shippers with the vehicles and carriers they need. Because top carriers compete for your business at FreightCenter, our customers typically save 25%, 50%, 75% or more than the cost of booking with the carrier directly.
Types of freight trucks available via FreightCenter include:
Shippers with a cargo that won't fill a truck can save money by using our Less-than-Truckload (LTL) freight shipping services. With LTL freight shipping, carriers fill their trucks with smaller loads from any number of shippers. Since you only pay for the space you use, you save money. FreightCenter works with more than 80 national and regional LTL freight carriers. You can compare quotes from the LTL carriers that are available to handle your shipment instantly, then work with a shipping expert (National Account Manager) to verify your order and generate all the necessary paperwork.
Most LTL freight shipping is done in dry vans, but some LTL carriers also have air ride vehicles at their disposal.
As the name implies, with full truckload freight service you have use of the entire truck. Full truckload service is necessary when the load is too heavy or takes up too much space for LTL, or when it cannot be properly packaged for LTL freight, which shares space with multiple carriers' loads. Shipments requiring flatbed, step deck or RGN trucks are always booked as Truckload.
An increasing number of loads that are not large enough for a full truckload, but also are not appropriate for for LTL, are being shipped as partial truckload freight, a service of our Truckload division.
No matter what type of freight truck you need, the easiest way to get started is to get an instant freight quote from multiple carriers or call 800.716.7608 to speak with a FreightCenter shipping expert.
