Freight Delivery FAQ

What is the meaning of freight services?

Freight services are logistics service that involves transporting goods by land, air, or sea. Businesses typically use these services to move large quantities of merchandise or raw materials to and from manufacturing plants, distribution centers, or retail locations.

Businesses can also use our direct freight services to transport finished products to customers. In many cases, freight companies will provide packaging and shipping services in addition to transportation, which can help to reduce the cost and hassle of moving goods. As a result, freight services play an essential role in the global economy by enabling businesses to move goods quickly and efficiently.

What are the 4 main types of freight transportation?
There are four main types of freight transportation: trucking, rail, water, and air. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Trucking is the most common form of freight transportation due to its flexibility.

Trucks can travel on any road and easily change routes to avoid traffic delays. However, trucks are also the most expensive option and can be subject to weather-related delays. Rail is cheaper than trucking, but it is less flexible since trains must follow set routes. Water transport is the slowest option, but it is often the most economical choice for shipping large quantities of goods. Finally, airfreight is the fastest option but also the most expensive.

When choosing a freight carrier, businesses must weigh each option’s relative costs and benefits to find the best solution for their needs.

What does FTL and LTL mean?
Shippers can choose between two main methods when transporting goods by truck: full truckload (FTL) and less than truckload (LTL). As the names suggest, FTL involves shipping goods on a full truck (or almost full), while LTL consists of shipping goods on a truck that is only partially full. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages, and the best option for a given shipment will depend on several factors.

FTL is the best option for high-value or time-sensitive shipments, while LTL is the best for low-value or less time-sensitive shipments. However, there are many other factors to consider when choosing between FTL and LTL, so shippers should always consult with a logistics expert to determine the best option for their needs.

Heavy-Haul and Oversized Loads

Heavy-Haul and Oversized Loads

Do you need to move a Heavy-Haul or Oversized load? Cardinal Delivery Service can assist you with that. Heavy-haul trucking calls for particular documentation and permitting. Different states, cities, and counties will restrict the amount of time an oversized freight can travel and during what hours of the day. Depending on the commodity shipping as the heavy load, there could be added permits required for the cargo as well.

If you’re moving a shipment across state lines, know that the regulations vary from state to state. Our commercial freight services are here to help you navigate through all of the requirements for shipping Heavy-Haul or Oversized loads legally and safely. We also have a comprehensive warehouse storage facility to ensure your goods are in the best storage facility in Houston Texas

Heavy-Haul and Oversized Loads FAQ

What is a Heavy load?

The definition can vary across states, but as far as the federal government is concerned cargo is classified as a heavy load when it exceeds:

  • 80,000 pounds of gross vehicle weight
  • 20,000 pounds of single axle weight
  • 34,000 pounds of tandem axle weight
What is an Oversize Load?

Since the standard highway lane is 12 feet wide, loads exceeding 8.5 feet wide are considered oversize and often require a state permit.
