What Does Freight Shipping Mean?

Posted by LNC Logistics

What is freight?

Freight, sometimes referred to as cargo, is the word used to describe goods that are being transported from one location to another. Freight is a generalized term that can be used to describe anything being transported- most commonly used with ground shipping. The word cargo is often reserved for items and goods being transported by ship or plane but there are exceptions.


Freight shipping is the process of transporting these items, safely and efficiently from one location to another. The most common types of freight shipping include truckload and less than truckload (LTL). The distinction between these two categories is based solely off the amount of freight being shipped. If your freight takes up an entire truck it will be truckload shipping, if it does not, it will be less than load shipping.


If you are a company that is looking to cut the shipping costs for your freight transportation we can help! At LNC Logistics we work with companies that are looking to transport freight all across North America without breaking their budget or sacrificing the quality of their shipping.The reason freight brokers, such as LNC Logistics, are able to do this is because we work within an extended network of shippers all across the continent to help them fill their trucks with freight everyday so each load they carry is maximizing the usage of their vehicle. This helps carriers keep their efficiency high and shippers lock in lower rates than they could get on their own. When companies have less than a full truckload of freight that they wish to ship, they will want to be paired up with a shipper that can accommodate their load and is going on the same route that they need. At LNC Logistics, we work with you to find smart shipping solutions that fit your needs for low cost shipping rates. Whether you are unhappy with your current shipping strategy or are a new business shopping around for the best shipping options for your freight, we can help!
