LTL: Less than truckload. (Approximately 1-20 pallets)

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 (Approximately 20 or more pallets)

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.

Domestic:

When 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:

Utilized 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:

A 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.

Dry Van:

Typically, dry van trailers can be used for almost all types of freight. These are the most readily available type of trailers and are commonly used for transporting food, textiles, clothing items, plastics,

Flatbed:

Cargo that may not require the enclosure of a dry van, cannot be loaded or unloaded from a dock or does not fit within the dimensions of standard truck trailers. A flatbed’s design allows for cranes and forklifts to load goods from all angles. 

Commercial vehicles that have a flat platform rather than an enclosed trailer are called flatbed trucks. The benefit of this type of truck is that it allows trucking companies to transport large or unusually-shaped freight.

Refrigerated:

A 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:

Anything 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.

Rolltite:

Cargo that may not require the enclosure of a dry van, cannot be loaded or unloaded from a dock or does not fit within the dimensions of standard truck trailers. A flatbed’s design allows for cranes and forklifts to load goods from all angles.

Step Deck:

A step deck trailer has no sides, roof, or doors, This type of trailer is a semi-trailer that has two deck levels, with the higher, shorter one positioned closer to the front. The higher, shorter deck level is designed to clear the edge of the tractor unit, but can also drop down in order to handle taller loads. Stacking goods on the lower level is a great way to use the extra space for transporting more products at a time. Another great advantage is that forklifts can load or unload cargo much easier and efficiently since the trailer is closer to the ground than a flatbed trailer.

Boom Truck:

Boom trucks usually have a rotating telescopic-boom crane mounted on a commercial truck chassis. The configuration allows for ease of transport of lifting equipment to job sites and allows the boom truck to maximize utilization.
