How to Make Shipping Metal Racks Easy and Affordable
FreightCenter makes shipping metal racks easy and affordable for you. Follow the suggestions on this page, and you’ll see how.
How Are Metal Racks Used and Shipped?
Commercial-grade metal racks are used in warehouses and retail shops all over. These metal racks are heavy, oversized, and must be shipped as freight. Warehouses often require large quantities to be shipped at once. Metal racks in commercial use are referred to as “pallet racking,” which includes uprights, cross beams, and wire shelving. Shipping metal racks means disassembling the frames to reduce space and increase density. With freight shipping, the greater the density, the lower the freight class (and shipping cost). Freight shipping is usually done via LTL (less-than-truckload) hauls. But if you are shipping a lot of for a new warehouse or store, you may need a full truckload. Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.

How Do You Prepare for Shipping Metal Racks via Less-than-truckload (Ltl)?
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 threaten other shipments on the truck. Prepare for shipping metal racks by banding the disassembled components to pallets. Ensure the cargo does not extend over any pallet edges at any point. Place any loose hardware in boxes and secure the boxes to the pallet. Shrink wrap the boxes to protect them and their contents.
