This article explains how to use Deliverr Freight as a shipping method when inbounding your inventory.
What is freight?
Freight is inventory shipped in bulk by truck, train, ship, or aircraft. While freight is typically shipped on pallets, small parcel is typically shipped in boxes or polybags. (Note: all shipments to Deliverr must arrive in boxes!). Here is a rule of thumb for choosing between freight shipping and small parcel shipping: if you want to ship more than 250 pounds to one location, then you should use freight shipping instead of small parcel.
What are Deliverr's inbound freight offerings?
Deliverr offers drayage, less than truckload (LTL), and full truckload (FTL) services but not all services are available from within the Deliverr Seller Portal. For drayage services, please complete this form.
If you are using Forwarding and shipping from within 50 miles of Deliverr's crossdocks (in Fontana, CA or Edison, NJ), then you can book LTL and FTL from within the Deliverr Seller Portal.
If you are using Forwarding but shipping greater than 50 miles from Deliverr's crossdocks or inbounding directly to Deliverr Fulfillment Centers, then you will have two freight services in the Deliverr Seller Portal:
Less than full truckload (LTL) services
- Full truckload (FTL) services
Less than full truckload (LTL) services can be booked within the within the Deliverr Seller Portal and detailed directions are here.
Full truckload (FTL) services must be booked outside of the Deliverr Seller Portal and detailed directions are here.
