Freight shipping is the process of moving freight between destinations through different transportation modes, like full truckload, less-than-truckload, rail, ship, air, etc. Freight is goods that are transported in bulk by truck, train, ship, or aircraft. Almost 90 percent of the world’s goods are transported via freight shipping, which makes it an important branch of the global economy.

Freight shipping costs are affected by many different factors. The final cost depends on shipment dimensions, weight, address destination, commodity type, and more. To get an approximate price estimate, shippers request a freight quote or rate.

To get an accurate freight rate, you have to understand what factors impact it. Here are some crucial aspects that shape the cost of your shipment:

  • Dimensions
  • Weight
  • Type of commodity
  • Destination
  • Density
  • Stow-ability
  • Freight class
  • Time frames
  • Packaging
  • Volume
  • Fuel prices
  • Service fees

When getting a freight quote, most of these factors are included in the calculation. It is critical to give correct and precise information about your cargo to get the most accurate rate.

To ensure a safe and reliable delivery, it is critical to properly package and secure your freight. Usually, shippers stack freight on the pallets or crates to make it easier to stack and ship. Read more about best freight packing practices.
