WHAT ARE SHIPPING RATES?

Your shipping rate is the price applied to your freight based on several factors: Fluctuations in fuel prices, carrier, type of cargo, destination, class and other shipment details.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL SHIPPING RATES?

Many people wonder if commercial shipping rates are less expensive than residential shipping rates. The answer is not necessarily simple, but generally it costs less to ship to a commercial address as opposed to a residential one. This is especially the case for more rural locations where roads are less efficient for transportation.

Any destination or location that restricts trucks from entering a point of entry is considered to be limited access. FreightCenter works with carriers that are equipped to access such locations such as construction sites, military bases, school, churches, government facilities, etc. by finding nearest dock
