Posted by Tania

Getting a freight quote for your skid shipments can be simple. Just as FlagShip can help you save time and money for your smaller shipments going by shipping carriers like Purolator, FedEx, UPS, DHL, Canpar and GLS, we can help you with your palletized shipments. When your shipment is too large to travel via courier, FlagShip’s Freight LTL services can arrange for less-than-truckload (LTL) and full-truckload (FTL) skid shipments. No shipment is too big or too small – and we cover all of Canada and the United States. With over 20,000 carriers for freight services and options like rail, expedited truck shipments, and overseas freight – we’ve got the solution for you. Here’s how to get a freight quote with FlagShip:

Step 1: Enter your pickup and delivery information

Once you login to your FlagShip account, click on “Freight Quote” from the “Freight & Logistics” drop down in the menu. If you don’t have an account, click here to sign-up for your FREE account! In the Freight Quote page, you will then enter your pickup and delivery information, such as the addresses and hours of operation.

Step 2: Indicate the items being shipped

Simply enter the type of item you are shipping (ex. Skid) and the details like the weight, length, width, and height of the item(s).

Step 3: Select delivery and pickup options

In this section, select any options you would need such a tailgate pickup or weekend delivery. It is important to indicate the options needed as these are additional services that the carrier provides in order to make a delivery/pickup.
