Freight Quotes Baltimore
It may seem like a fairly simple task to request freight quotes from shipping companies. You provide the particulars of your shipment, including what type of freight it is, how much it weighs, and where it’s going, and you find out how much it will cost to get it from point A to point B. However, even after you collect multiple freight quotes and choose the lowest one, you may not get the best price. Why not?
The truth is that freight transportation in Baltimore and elsewhere has become a highly complex industry, especially if you’re a less-than-truckload (LTL) shipper. There are so many options for carriers, haul routes, and distribution centers that it takes specialized industry savvy to ferret out the most efficient choices for any given shipment. What’s more, when you get the bill for shipping services, you may be surprised to see additional accessorial fees that weren’t included in your freight quote – such as fuel surcharges and fees for lift gates and driver unloading services.
