The next step to saving money on freight or logistics charges: Confirm your Freight Class and Weights are correct.
Freight carriers charge more to deliver to a residential location compared to a business location. This is because residential locations typically involve harder to navigate streets and are often more difficult to find than business located in commercial areas. Remember, even if you run a business out of your residence, the freight carrier will still consider that a “residential delivery” and charge the hefty residential delivery fees on that shipment. If a business location is not a possibility, freight carriers deliver to airport terminals and you can pick up freight shipments there if the weight is low enough to transport with your vehicle.
