Discover how easy it is to get shipping freight quotes with BlueGrace Logistics.
Step 1: Select a Service Mode
Select one of four primary ship freight models for your goods. Here’s an overview of each service category:
Less-Than-Truckload: This shopping service is ideal for freight in small volumes. LTL shipping methods only use part of a delivery truck’s space, allowing you to save on delivery costs.
Full Truckload: This freight shipping option is for large orders that fill an entire semi-trailer or truck. This secure solution is for companies shipping items that need exclusive attention.

Intermodal: Some shipments require more than one shipping method and we are prepared to oversee the details. We offer drayage trucking services that combine multiple transport options including truckload, railroad, and ocean shipping to meet your needs.
Other Modes: Special shipments, such as temperature-sensitive items, require customized freight shipping solutions. We are experienced in handling these kinds of shipments so you can be assured that your goods are in good hands!
Step 2: Describe Your Shipment
Tell us about your shipment so we can assess and provide you with an accurate quote. We need the following information to start:
Where Are You Shipping: Let us know whether you are shipping to a business or residence. Also, provide details about the pickup and delivery location.
How Frequently Do You Ship: Tell us if you ship products daily, weekly, or monthly. You may also select an option for one-time shipments.
Shipment Description: Describe the products you need to ship, including dimensions and weight.
You may also need to enter National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) codes if you have them. Utilizing a density calculator can help you determine freight shipping class.
