Best Shipping Methods for Your Freight

FreightCenter can help you Find the Best Shipping Methods for Your Freight. Decide which of the following types of freight transportation and services will best fit your needs.

Best Shipping Methods for Your Freight

LTL Type of freight

Less Than Truckload (LTL)

By far the most popular type of freight transportation, LTL freight is generally shipped by truck to and from your pickup and destination locations. LTL freight shipping is the most cost-effective, reliable and timely service because your shipment shares a truck with other LTL freight shipments.

Types of freight

Partial Truckload Shipping

Partial Truckload Different from LTL freight, this type of freight involves a dedicated truck that moves fewer loads at one time and handles all types of commodities; including refrigerated, temperature-controlled, hazardous material and overweight or oversized goods.

Partial truckload shipping is reserved for medium-size loads that are booked by volume or require running feet of a truck.

full truckload shipping

Truckload (TL)

This service is ideal for commodities that are unpackaged or may require refrigeration, climate control, flatbeds or other special accommodation for oversize or overweight shipments.

Truckload shipping is not the least expensive transportation option, but it can be much faster than LTL freight because it requires no truck transfers (e.g., unloading and reloading of your shipment).

Airride Type of freight

Air Ride Truckload (Full or Partial)

If your shipment is delicate or has a high risk of damage, then a dedicated truck with air-ride suspension is the most preferred method of transportation. For this type of freight, air ride provides a softer ride than a standard freight truck.

Because this type of service is used less frequently it can often be more expensive than a standard full or partial truckload shipment.

Air Freight Type of freight

Air Freight

Air freight services have the fastest transit time by far. Cargo airlines or air freight carriers are dedicated to handling logistics for the transport of cargo.

Specifically, for the shipping of smaller packages, types of air freight usually have a higher density, which means they don’t take up much space on a cargo plane but they do meet the weight requirements to be considered freight.

If the package weighs more than 100 pounds and is tightly packed, air freight shipping can be more cost-effective than LTL freight methods.
