We put small-business shippers front and center with Freight Central: a new website focused on helping you understand LTL (less-than-truckload) freight shipping.

We’ve categorized the information in easy-to-see and easy-to-maneuver pages and step-by-step instructions. With tools and resources literally at your fingertips, you’ll find what you’re looking for fast and – most important – get shipping with us in just four simple steps.

Here are a few highlights of the site you’ll want to check out:

  • Freight Shipping 101: Walks you through the four steps involved in shipping with FedEx Freight: opening an account, getting a rate quote, shipping online and managing your account.
  • LTL Freight Classification Tool: Takes you through the simple two-step process for estimating your LTL freight shipment classification – a key factor in getting an accurate rate quote.
