The Best Way to Make Shipping Chemicals Easy and Affordable

Whether you’re buying or selling, FreightCenter makes shipping chemicals easy and affordable. Shipping chemicals is usually done via LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. But if you are shipping many chemicals, you may need a full truckload. That’s why several of FreightCenter’s most frequent customers are shippers of chemicals. Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.

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

If you are shipping chemicals in quantities that call for full truckload service, FreightCenter’s Truckload division will match the suitable 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 refrigerated van or airlift suspension for shipping chemicals, 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 immediately.

How Do You Prepare Chemicals for Ltl Freight Shipping?

You save money with LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping because your shipment shares the truck with loads from other shippers. Your cargo must be packaged so it will not be damaged in transit and will not present a danger to other shipments on the truck. Packaging could vary from bagged chemicals in boxes to barrels depending on the specific chemical being shipped. The packaged chemicals must then be strapped to pallets so they can be moved easily via forklift or pallet jack. Shipping chemicals place specific responsibilities on the shipper and others on the carrier. FreightCenter will book your shipment only with carriers with the know-how and experience to handle your chemicals as safety regulations require. All corrosive and combustible chemicals must comply with local, state, and federal Hazmat laws and be marked as Hazmat. In case of a spill, all chemical packaging must be marked with the name and contact information of a company authorized to clean up that chemical.
