How to Ship Automotive Components and Accessories


The automotive industry relies on a complex supply chain network to efficiently deliver various components and accessories to their destinations.

Guidelines for Shipping Automotive Components


Proper packaging is essential to ensure their safe arrival when shipping automotive components and accessories:


  • Select sturdy boxes or appropriately sized containers for the items, allowing enough room for cushioning materials. 
  • Wrap individual components in bubble wrap or foam to prevent damage from impacts or vibrations during transit. 
  • Use packing peanuts, air pillows, or crumpled paper to fill empty spaces and provide additional cushioning. 
  • Securely tape the package and label it with the sender and recipient’s information. 
  • Consider insuring valuable or fragile items and choosing a reputable shipping carrier with tracking options for added peace of mind.

Finely-tailored freight solutions

To create value for our customers by delivering customized shipping solutions that meet their unique needs and to fulfill shipping demands from simple to complex with expertise, guidance and ingenuity.

LTL Shipping

LTL shipping involves combining multiple small shipments from different customers onto one truck, allowing each customer to share the shipment cost. Trust the experts at FreightCenter to give you the best prices and the most comprehensive options for all your LTL freight shipping needs.

Full Truckload

Truckload shipping, also known as full truckload (FTL), is a transportation option for freight that requires the entire trucks trailer space. Unlike LTL shipping, FTL shipping is reserved for larger commodities that exceed LTL weight and size limits, typically weighing more than 20,000 pounds or having dimensions that exceed 12 feet in length, 8 feet in width, and 8 feet in height. We deliver optimized solutions for full or partial truckloads and competitive dry van, flatbed, and refrigerated freight pricing. We can cover your full truckload shipping needs.

Expedited Services

Nationwide Expedited Trucking services move your freight securely and rapidly. Your freight requires fast delivery; our freight shipping experts can get your shipment fast, whether in one large box or a full truckload. Expedited shipping is a transportation option that prioritizes the speed of delivery for freight that needs to be shipped quickly. This can be especially important for urgent situations, such as engine repairs or replacements for critical machinery.

Specialized Freight Shipping

Specialized is a transportation option for items that require specialized handling, equipment, or shipping conditions. Specialized shipments may include high-value cargo, oversized cargo, or cargo that require temperature-controlled transportation. The most reliable Specialized Freight Services rates from all the top carriers are just a few steps away. From white glove service to international shipping, we've got you covered.
