Logistic and Freight Service FAQs
What does logistics mean? Is it different from LTL?
Logistics refers to the global supply chain management. Everything from the manufacturer to end receiver, which includes warehousing, trucking, rail, air, ocean, pick and packing.
Yes, logistics is different from LTL. LTL refers to the size of the shipment (less than a truckload).
Does FlagShip ship to places other than Canada?
Yes. FlagShip is a Third–party reseller; we can ship anywhere in the world.
Can my UPS account be used for clearance of a skidded shipment?
No, your UPS account cannot be used for clearance for a freight shipment because the majority of accounts set up with UPS for clearance is through their small packages. If you are shipping skids or something too large to go via courier, you will need to have your own customs broker.
Why would I use FlagShip when I could go directly to a carrier?
The number one reason is FlagShip is your one–stop shop solution. When it comes to freight shipments there is plenty to consider, the great news is that we do the bill of lading for you, we do the tracking and tracing, and above all if there are any issues, we deal with it for you. As a business owner, you gain a knowledgeable partner that helps streamline your supply chain and stay on top of your consumer demand.
What are accessorial charges?
An accessorial charge is a fee added to a freight cost for any additional service that a carrier provides in order to make a standard delivery and/or pickup. They usually occur with LTL shipments and we always make sure to include these charges during the quoting process when we are made aware of them. Read our blog on the most common accessorial charges.
