HOW TO CHOOSE FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION
The first step is to measure your freight shipment to create an accurate listing and receive the best quotes from transporters. Then you can choose a freight transporter or freight broker that best fits your transport needs. When deciding on a company, remember to check their authority, cargo insurance, and feedback or references through their transporter profile on uShip.
It is important to prepare your freight correctly. There are specific packaging and labeling requirements for freight transportation. We recommend asking your chosen courier for instructions to prevent damage to your goods.
COMPLETE YOUR FREIGHT DELIVERY
Although your freight transporter may assist, be prepared to handle your goods at the pickup and delivery locations. This may include: packing, loading and unloading your shipment.
