What Is Freight?

Freight is anything too heavy or large to ship by parcel. Parcel shippers are like your local post office or UPS. Usually anything over 150 pounds is considered freight.

Types of Freight

Freight falls into two main categories: LTL and Truckload.

LTL

As the name suggests, LTL freight (less than truckload) includes items that don’t take up a full truck. This could include one big item, several big items, or even a lot of smaller items.

Truckload

Truckload freight takes up a full truck. Large businesses with complex supply chains usually use truckload freight services. Truckload services are also called for when:
A shipment is too large for LTL
The shipment cannot be packaged for safe LTL shipping
A specialty vehicle such as a flatbed is required

Partial Truckload

Partial truckload is a sub-category of Truckload shipping, when a shipment can’t go LTL but doesn’t take up an entire truck.

Special Freight Services

The services required to transport your freight will depend on what you’re shipping.

Examples of Special Services:

LTL

 

  • Pickup and Delivery Notifications

  • First and Final Mile

  • Liftgate

Truckload
