WHAT IS A BILL OF LADING?
The Bill of Lading is a document between the shipper and carrier to move your freight. It will list the shipper, consignee (receiver of the freight), items being shipped, weight and description of freight.
WHAT IS LTL SHIPPING?
LTL stands for “Less than Truckload”, meaning when you don’t need an entire truck for your shipment. It is perfect for smaller shipments and usually more economical.
IS MY SHIPMENT INSURED?
In most instances you will receive limited insurance on your shipment. We highly recommend purchasing supplemental insurance. We are happy to help provide additional options with hundreds of carriers that can be applied to your ocean, LTL, truckload, rail and air freight shipments. Just let us know your needs.
ARE TRANSIT TIMES GUARANTEED?
In many instances transit times can be guaranteed depending on the application. This is typically done with airfreight and some less-than- truckload shipments. Please call if you have any questions or would like to guarantee a delivery time.
HOW DO I PAY FOR MY SHIPMENT?
We accept payment by credit card or we can set-up an account for billing.
