Less than truckload service has nuances that differ from parcel shipping. Streamline your next LTL shipment pickup with help from Freightquote by C.H. Robinson.

Expect the carrier you booked&mdah;not Freightquote. You selected the freight carrier during booking—their driver will move the shipment. Give the bill of lading or BOL to your driver during pickup, it helps get your shipment to the right place. Load your own freight. Your driver won’t be able to help, which is why communicating needs during the booking process—like a lift gate—is critically important. Contact Freightquote customer support with changes. We can answer questions and make adjustments. Track your shipment from pickup to delivery on the Freightquote website. Remember, the status will not update until the truck arrives at the terminal.
