What the heck is freight!

Freight Shipping

Freight is goods transported by truck, train, ship, or aircraft. A freight service is used for those items that, because of their volume, size or weight, they cannot be shipped via the small parcel shipping companies such as the USPS. While most people think that freight shipments are for commercial goods, they are also available to anyone looking to ship large, bulky or heavy items.

For example, if you have a couch that you want to ship to your son in Omaha, NE, it can be shipped freight. Do you have a grandfather clock that you want to give to your daughter in Boise, Idaho? It can be shipped freight. If you have a room full of furniture and you are moving to California from Canada, it can be shipped freight.

The most important thing to remember when shipping by freight is that you will need to properly package your item(s) and prepare it for shipping. This usually means that you will have to crate or palletize your shipment. Don’t know how to do this? Don’t worry. Pak Mail Superstore can help you with it all.
