In the world of freight shipping, the term “large” can cover a lot of sizes. Each has his or her perception versus what we here at Corlett Express view as “large.” First, take into consideration what you are shipping:
Whatever the item is in transport, there are different definitions to consider determining actual size. These are of course rather large items and may cause one to wonder. So allow us to clarify for your reference.
What is the difference between Parcel and Freight?
Knowing which of these pertains to your items will be the priority. What this will do is it will help determine not only what type of shipping you need to do, but also the size of truck/trailer, cost and more.
A parcel is deemed under 150 pounds, no more than 108 inches in length and circumference less than 165 inches. In the shipping world, or in terms of freight, this is considered a less than a large item.
Freight is considered anything more than parcel dimensions. The shipment also includes further planning into which type of truck, loading, and unloading as well as space inside the freight truck will be required to ensure full delivery.
