What Is Truck Freight?
Truck freight is the transportation of large items over the road using freight trucks. Freight transportation via trucks is categorized as less than truckload (LTL), partial truckload or full truckload (TL). FreightCenter provides all three truck freight options. We also specialize in matching your load with the type of truck you need.
Organizing truck freight shipping, can require complex logistics work. As a third-party logistics (3PL) provider for 20+ years, FreightCenter specializes in simplifying supply chains via truck freight transportation.

The Ltl Freight Experts
Over the years FreightCenter has built relationships with the top freight companies. Now, we provide one of the largest selections of LTL services to residential and commercial customers.
LTL shipping is complicated, because it requires the consolidation of dozens of shipments onto one truck. These shipments come from different origins and are headed to different destinations. Often, they have to be unloaded and reloaded onto another truck at a freight terminal.
This consolidation makes freight shipping much more cost effective.
