Freight Shipping Tools & Resources
In an effort to provide all the freight shipping tools needed by our customers, BlueGrace® Logistics has put together this bank of shipping resources.
BlueGrace Logistics has developed a density calculator to help you determine the freight class of density based shipments. This freight shipping tool can help to reduce re-class and re-weigh fees and overall costs, by ensuring you select the correct freight class in the first place. Class is our expertise and we are proud to share this knowledge with you. To use our density calculator, please click on the button below.
BlueGrace Logistics is proud to offer a freight terms glossary of over 750 freight, shipping and supply chain management terms. This glossary can help determine what each shipping acronym means, what each type of payment and credit terms are, the meaning of some industry “slang” terms, and many more. No need to look anywhere else to find a meaning to a term in the transportation industry.
Our company provides a single resource for documents that will help to simplify the shipping process with BlueGrace Logistics. This resource includes documents that will help from setting up an account with BlueGrace, becoming a carrier or partner of BlueGrace, to filing LTL claim forms with freight carriers. You can also read our BluePapers and see the leverage we are providing our customers on projects of all sizes.
One of the biggest challenges we see our customers dealing with across the industry are NMFC codes, freight classifications and the re-classes. BlueGrace Logistics has NMFC freight class experts that have developed a resource page to assist in determining the correct freight class for your shipment. These experts are also available to help you facilitate your needs and evaluate processes and issues that could be corrected to save you money in the future.
