Volume partials, commonly referred to as partial freight, do not take up the entire capacity of a trailer and provide cost saving opportunity by sharing space with other freight that is heading in the same direction.
To qualify as a partial, FreightZip requires a minimum of 10 linear feet of deck.
Partial freight rates are determined by multiple factors, including the amount of space used, shipping lane, mileage, weight, and trailer type.
Unlike LTL freight, partial freight does not require the assignment of a freight classification.
Unlike LTL freight, partial freight is direct and does not pass through hubs or terminals, which makes for better transit time.
Flatbed partials must be at least 10 linear feet but cannot exceed 32 feet in total length. FreightZip handles flatbed shipments in excess of 32 feet as dedicated truckload.
Van partials have similar rules as flatbed partials. Shipments must be at least 10 linear feet but cannot exceed 28 feet in total length. FreightZip handles van shipments in excess of 28 feet as dedicated truckload.
