LTL (less than truckload)Many small to mid-sized companies are using LTL shipping more often. LTL is a cost-effective way to achieve better rates, reduce warehousing costs and not pay for unused cargo space in the truck. If you're shipping 20 skids/pallets or under, LTL is the way to go to handle your freight needs.
FTL (full truckload)Full truckload shipping comes at a greater cost but also has its own advantages. FTL is a more safe, secure, and efficient way of transporting your goods. Whether you have enough freight to fill a standard truck, or you have high-value commodity or time-sensitive goods that require a dedicated truck, FTL is the preferred choice. 20+ pallets/crates
Domestic ShippingWhen your freight is shipped from A to B within a country's borders. Often, these services can be extremely fast, and sometimes same-day delivery is available from certain carriers. Two-day and three-day delivery options are common. If you're a Canadian or American shipping domestic we have carriers that only run Canadian or Interstate lanes. Let us help you move your freight domestically!
Cross Border ShippingUtilized for goods that will travel through a country but may or may not stay in that country. Cross-border shipping can be complicated. Most companies understand this and have a customs broker help with their paperwork. FreightNav helps with this process by automatically formulating a BOL (bill of lading) with all your shipment details. You can email, print and send it to anyone involved in your shipping process.
Hazmat ShippingA hazardous material is any material that may cause serious injury or harm to a person or property when shipped. This can include chemicals, explosives, and biohazardous materials. Shipping hazmat is among the most complicated, regulation-heavy, and expensive products to ship. Because they could pose a danger to people, property, or the environment, there are many rules and regulations required to transport hazmat. Luckily FreightNav has a wide range of carriers that will handle your hazmat material safely and professionally.
Temperature Controlled ShippingA freight transport method specializing in the transportation of foods and products that require a temperature-controlled means of transport, commonly referred to as a “reefer” truck. The trailer hauling the food and other products has a built-in refrigeration system to keep any and all products in their pre-shipped state. Reefer trucks are mainly used to transport spoilable goods. With this option, refrigerated cargo can reach the intended destination without any loss or decay.
Heavy Haul ShippingAnything beyond conventional dimensions, including oversized freight, wide loads, and heavy equipment. As the name suggests, heavy-hauling loads are often overweight and oversized. Conventionally sized loads that are overweight also fall into this category. Heavy haul trailers are necessary for legally transporting oversized and/or heavy loads and typically have a multi-axle trailer to accommodate large loads. The trailers are generally separated into axle categories to identify how many wheel sets are on the trailer.
Expedited ShippingExpedited shipping is moving your freight in a time sensitive manner even if that means same day or next day. Expediting your freight cuts down on transit times and gets your products to your destination more efficiently. In most cases the carrier will charge a premium on this as scheduling and organizing a truck in a short period of time can be tricky and time consuming.
