Special Requirements When Shipping Freight. Shipping destinations can be as distinct as the freight heading to them. Some deliveries could be as plain and simple as loading dock to loading dock, but some delivery locations have special requirements. It’s important to know the details of where your shipment is being delivered so that you can select the correct shipping accessorials during quoting to avoid costly billing adjustments after the shipment is completed. Let’s discuss freight shipping to destinations with special requirements and what you need to know.

Special Destinations When Shipping Freight

Some shipping locations require specialized shipping services to complete the order. This can be anything from moving the load into a different truck, specific equipment for loading and unloading, needing a liftgate, and more. Essentially, if the standard freight handling equipment isn’t enough to handle the delivery of the shipment, accessorials become necessary additions.

Residential Locations

Residential locations (or non-commercial locations) are not usually freight truck-friendly, so deliveries to residential and at-home businesses typically cost more. Residential locations are located across the U.S., and avoiding them is sometimes impossible. The difference between a residential zone location and a commercially zoned location is that commercially zoned locations open and close to the public at a set time every day.

Residentially zoned locations can include any of the following:

– Apartments

– Residences

– Farms

– Estates

– Remote locations

– Home-based businesses

Avoid added residential shipping fees by noting the residential delivery location in advance when filling out your freight quote.

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 Service

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.

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.
