Secure Shipment Divider
If you want extra privacy, security or just plain peace of mind, you choose first-class travel. Well, the same goes for your LTL freight. Choose our secure shipment divider service when you want private space and added peace of mind for your goods. It’s a first class solution.
Secure shipment divider service adds security and simplicity to your shipment. Our segregated bulkhead shipping solution provides enhanced security for high-value freight. Since your freight will be frontloaded, the secure shipment divider eliminates co-mingling and labeling of multiple cartons. It reduces crating and packaging costs. It also utilizes a single bill of lading for the entire contents.
Requesting secure shipment divider service is easy. You simply select it as an option with our online quote or bill of lading form.
What’s a TruckPack®?
It’s an inexpensive, sturdy bulk shipping box for up to 1,500 pounds of cargo. It’s also a convenient, compact, cost-effective packaging solution. The ABF Freight® TruckPack® container consists of top and bottom trays, a single collapsible wall, banding material and assembly instructions. Best of all, this box fits on a standard 40" x 48" pallet.
Compact and damage resistant
A TruckPack shipping box is easy to handle and can be assembled in about 60 seconds. Filled with product and placed on a pallet, these bulk shipping boxes can be double-stacked (but not racked) for storage. Because they’re constructed of laminated, double-wall corrugated materials, our pallet boxes typically exceed off-the-shelf packaging used by most companies.
Space Based Pricing
What is the cubic minimum charge (CMC)?
Spaced-based pricing is a simplified approach to LTL shipping — it makes getting a quote easier and more accurate. Similar to the Absolute Minimum Charge that applies to weight-based pricing, the Cubic Minimum Charge (CMC) is a minimum linehaul rate for shipments based on the space they occupy — establishing an absolute minimum price per cubic foot for LTL shipments.
When you get an LTL quote by phone or online, just provide the dimensions of your shipment (length, width and height), along with details such as origin, destination, weight, and class, and we’ll help determine whether the space-based minimum charge applies to your freight.
