FreightGo.COM offers an automated less-than-truckload (LTL) service that guides you through the process of LTL shipping with ease and confidence. And because we handle thousands of shipments through our popular website and truckload brokerage we have negotiated discounted prices that are some of the best in the industry.
LTL shipments typically range from 100 to 10,000 LBS and can be loose cartons, pallets of banded or wrapped cartons, bins, drums or a number of other packaging configurations. Charges for LTL shipments are determined by numerous factors but basically use weight, density, portability, fragility, value, special handling requirements, transit miles and often service levels as the primary pricing criteria. Each shipment is assigned a freight classification based on these criteria and is rated accordingly. The charges are determined using either a pricing schedule called a tariff, used by one or more carriers and filed with the Federal or State governments, or a contract written between the shipper(s) and the carrier(s). In many cases a fuel surcharge is also added to the charges depending on the Department of Transportation's published price of diesel fuel for the week. As you may know this process can be quite complicated and prices can vary considerably from carrier to carrier.
FreightGo.COM uses a pricing concept that takes your shipment information and automatically displays the pricing in a simple comparison grid showing what each carrier will charge and what the estimated transit time is from pick up until delivery. You set the criteria and select the trucking company you prefer and FreightGo.COM can electronically notify the carrier and schedule a pickup of your shipment. Then print your shipping documents, shipping labels and email your customer that their shipment is on its way, that is all there is to it. Once your LTL shipment is picked up you can track it all the way to delivery right from your computer.
With a wide selection of regional and long haul LTL carriers you can trust FreightGo.COM to find the right carrier at the best price for your LTL shipments. Our professional customer service representatives are here to help you with any questions or concerns you may have. You can depend on FreightGo.COM to make your LTL shipping experience a pleasant and productive one the first time, every time.
