Full truckload freight shipping is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1 | Create Your Shipment Listing
When creating your shipment listing, consider your needs for your shipment. Think about your timeframe for pickup and delivery, and whether you'll require a container or have one yourself. Be prepared with the dimensions and weight of your freight and include as much detail as possible. Additionally, take a few high-quality photos of your shipment to add to the listing. Shipment listings with photos tend to receive more quotes.
2 | CHOOSE THE BEST FULL TRUCKLOAD SHIPPING SERVICE
When your shipment listing is complete, quotes from freight shipping companies will start coming in. The service providers will be competing for your business, so you know you're getting the best FTL shipping quotes available. To find out more about each company’s services and experiences with shipping freight like yours, directly ask the companies questions. You will then want to review each company by researching their carrier profiles. There, you'll find their transportation history, customer rated feedback, licensing, and insurance details.
uShip makes it easy to check freight carrier and freight broker authority, insurance, and references in the form of feedback left by prior customers. Spend some time reviewing what their customers had to say about their experience with the FTL shipping companies, so you know what to expect. Check into their cargo insurance coverage, and investigate purchasing additional cargo insurance through uShip. By talking to the companies directly, and reviewing their carrier profiles, you can feel confident you're choosing the best full truckload shipping service.
3 | FTL SHIPPING & DELIVERY
After you have chosen your FTL shipping company, contact them directly with any additional information, concerns, or questions you may have about your shipment. Communication is key to a successful shipment. Share any third-party contact information that may be useful, as well as any information you have regarding special services needed at pickup and delivery locations. Coordinate with your service provider through pickup and delivery, and contact us if you run into any issues communicating directly with your FTL transporter.
