Shipping Freight with Trucking Companies

mid-Atlantic intermodal drayageWhen you have a shipment that is too large for your local post office to handle, it is time to turn to freight shipping instead. Freight shipping means that items over one hundred pounds as well as items that are too large to fit within a standard mail truck can be shipped. Shipping freight can be accomplished through cargo planes, freight trucks, and large cargo ships.

Your freight is typically weighed and measured to determine what kind of container is needed to ship efficiently while also determining what form of transportation is best. If your freight weighs over eight thousand pounds, a personal container is typically used to transport, or the shipment is broken down into smaller containers. Your items should be labeled as to what they are, where they are going, and if they are fragile. This will help your truck driver understand what they are shipping and how much care is needed for the move.

While many truck drivers don’t mind unloading the freight once it has reached its destination, it is important to have bodies ready to jump in and help. If the freight is too heavy to load onto a truck with a normal gate, a truck with a hydraulic option should be used instead to avoid injury or damage.

Freight shipping may seem like a difficult task, but it can be done without any issue when you use a professional freight shipping company.
