To start the process, we assess the item you’re choosing to ship. We take note of product dimensions, weight and any other features that could impact freight capacity.
Machinery often brings about more packaging regulations than other shipments. We must balance your shipping needs with the packaging requirements of the carrier. For example, some carriers require all machinery shipments to be crated. Heavy equipment often requires lifts and loading dock access in order to get it on the truck.
We identify the appropriate mode. While some machinery and equipment parts are small enough in size and quantity to be assigned to LTL, others are much larger and will require a different transportation mode. In these instances, it’s important to consider truckload or flatbed options as well.
