Important Freight Shipping Information
Read about Freight Shipping
Freight shipping information is available care of N-Motion Freight. Doing research on how to ship cargo is always important because ultimately, customers need to know the details of the entire shipping process. N-Motion Freight provides a user friendly platform to ship full truckloads (FTL), less than truckload (LTL), expedited LTL and intermodal freight. Below are a few freight shipping tips to keep in mind when setting up a shipment. And if questions arise when booking a shipment, our professional staff are available to assist.
To accuratley quote a freight shipment, it is important to know the exact dimensions of the items being transported. These dimensions should be rounded off to the nearest inch. Remember, Length(x)Width(x)Height! Less than truckload (LTL) carriers rely on accurate cargo dimensions to build their load for the long trip ahead. False or inaccurate freight dimensions can result in a readjustment from the carrier and might be a bit more costly.
The weight of the cargo is another very important factor that is taken into consideration when quoting transport cost. Freight carriers use this factor to predetermine the number of loads that can legally be organized on the different trucks. The DOT is very particular when it comes to the weight of trucks on the road (hence the several weigh stations you see along the highways.) Again, incorrect information (weight) can result in an inflated price adjustment.
Oversize items are shipped very often and require extra space. These types of shipments are subject to higher shipping rates because of the multiple spots taken up on the trucks. N-Motion Freight can calculate freight shipping rates for customers based on the given dimensions. Multiple shipping options are available upon request.
Our ultimate goal is to deliver your freight in a timely manner and damage free. To ensure freight is damage free during transit, we recommend either palletizing or crating all freight items.
