Comparing General Freight Carriers
FreightCenter partners with a large network of freight companies. Most of these are general freight carriers, with a fair share of specialized freight carriers.
FreightCenter has general freight carriers that offer Truckload (TL) freight shipping services, while others offer Less-than-Truckload (LTL) freight shipping services. We have separate divisions of freight shipping agents for each service. While these two services sound like they are simple variations on general freight shipping, TL and LTL freight shipping actually operate in very different ways.
What they have in common is that FreightCenter gives you the ability to compare rates and estimated shipping times from general freight carriers that are available to ship your cargo.
