What Can I Do to Make Sure I Get the Best Truck Transport Rates?
In order to give you a quote on truck transport rates for your specific shipment, you will need to provide us with detailed information on its measurements and dimensional weight. If your freight can be boxed, loaded onto pallets and secured, then it should be easy to get accurate trucking rates.
All you need to do is determine the dimensional weight, which is related to the density of the goods. The dimensional weight is a key factor in trucking rates, and it guarantees that carriers will be adequately compensated for their time, equipment and fuel use, even if the load is very light.
If your freight is unusually large or oddly shaped, then you may need to discuss the requirements with Freight Rate Central staff before trucking freight rates can be accurately estimated. Freight Rate Central can arrange for the transport of oversized loads, over-dimensional shipments and overweight freight with a wide variety of cab and trailer types available. Large and unusual shipments are more costly, but we can provide an accurate estimate if we have all the information we need.
What Other Factors Can Affect Freight Rate Shipping Costs?
Other factors that affect Freight Rate shipping costs include:
- Whether or not there are loading docks at the pick-up and drop-off points.
- Whether the pick-up and drop-off points are in residential areas, which tend to have narrower roads and are more difficult to navigate in trucks.
- Whether the goods are new or used, plus any other factors that might affect insurance costs.
- Whether you are shipping hazardous freight.
- Whether refrigerated transport is required.
- Whether the shipment requires special permits: overweight, over-dimensional, etc.
- Whether the shipment requires pilot cars.
- Whether the shipment is a full or partial truckload.
