The Best Way to Make Shipping Lighting Easy and Affordable
Whether commercial or industrial, FreightCenter makes shipping lighting easy and affordable for you. Follow the suggestions on this page and you’ll see how.
FreightCenter ships all types of commercial and industrial lighting and lighting systems:
- High intensity discharge
- Compact fluorescent
Shipping lighting is usually done via LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. But if you are shipping a very large order of lighting equipment you may need a full truckload. Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.
How Do You Select a Carrier for Lighting if You Need a Full Truckload?
If you are shipping lighing 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 an air ride for your lighting 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.
How Do You Prepare Lighting for Ltl Freight Shipping?
You save money with LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping because your shipment shares the truck with loads from other shippers. It’s important that your cargo be packaged so it will not be damaged in transit and will not present a danger to other shipments on the truck.
Package lighting parts in crates or bulk boxes. Bulk boxes are designed to fit on pallets. The walls of the boxes can be double or even triple wall thick, often made of corrugated cardboard. Bulk boxes have removable tops and are best used for the smaller parts traveling with the shipment.
Lighting fixtures and bulbs should be packaged securely in crates for the highest level of protection.
