How to Ship Manufacturing Equipment and Supplies

 

Shipping manufacturing equipment and supplies can be done via LTL (less-than-truckload) freight. But if you are shipping one or more large pieces of equipment, you may need an FTL (full truckload), especially if you need to sideload or unload due to the length of the equipment. Some manufacturing equipment must be lifted and loaded onto a flatbed with a crane. Our truckload experts can get you the right equipment for the job.

 

FreightCenter makes shipping manufacturing equipment and supplies easy and affordable for you. Follow the suggestions on this page, and you’ll see how.

How Do You Prepare Manufacturing Equipment and Supplies 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.

  • Package your supplies 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.
  • Larger pieces of equipment can be palletized or packaged securely in crates for the highest level of protection. All machines with moving parts must be crated.
  • Properly secure your equipment and supplies within the packaging to prevent movement or damage during transit.
  • Clearly label each package with the shipping and receiving addresses, contact information, and any special handling instructions. Additionally, use warning labels or markings to indicate fragile or hazardous items.
  • Prepare all the necessary shipping documents, such as the bill of lading, commercial invoice, and any required customs paperwork for international shipments. Ensure the documentation is accurate and correctly filled out.
