How to Transport Freight on uShip

To find the best freight service, simply create a detailed listing that outlines your needs. Be sure to include the height, length, width and weight of your individual units. You’ll want to include your desired budget, time frame and service required (such as a general freight or a dedicated truck). Not sure what service you need? No worries! Simply put that in your listing and freight services can contact you with how they would handle your freight. The key to making a good listing is to provide as many details as possible. It’s not a bad idea to include a picture as well, so the freight service knows exactly what they will be moving.
