Frequently Asked Trucking Questions
What can be shipped with freight shipping?
Louisville Cartage Company is fully-equipped to ship almost anything that you might need. Whether you need a full truckload or less than a truckload, we have the resources to make it happen.
Can I expedite my shipment?
Yes, you can. Expediting shipments is easiest through road shipping. Take a look at our truck freight shipping options and our small freight shipping service for more information.
What is the difference between truckload and less-than-truckload?
The differences between less-than-truckload and truckload are primarily a matter of size. Less-than-truckload freight is larger than a parcel but doesn’t fill an entire trailer and is typically less than 15 000 lbs. Truckload freight shipments tend to be between 15 000 to 45 000 pounds.
What shipping option should I use?
That depends on the size of your delivery and the type of cargo being shipped. If you estimate your delivery is smaller than a truckload and needs to be shipped locally, we recommend small freight shipping. If your shipment is large enough to fill a truckload, we recommend road shipping.
How long does it take to ship freight?
Freight shipping times differ, depending on the shipping destination, mode of transport, and travel conditions. Your shipment can arrive as early as the day it dispatches or within weeks. Several factors determine shipping speed, though our experts will reroute shipments accordingly to minimize shipping time.
