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 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.

How Do You Select a Carrier if You Need a Full Truckload?

If you are shipping in dimensions and quantities that call for full truckload service, FreightCenter’s Truckload division will match the right carrier for your shipment. We maintain relationships with hundreds of regional and national freight trucking companies within our network. We excel at finding and booking specialty vehicles. If you need a specialty vehicle like a flatbed, RGN, or step deck for your shipping, we’re here to help. Call our Truckload shipping experts at 800.716.7608 to learn more, or use our free online quote tool to get started right away.
