LTL Freight Booking
Book your Less than Truckload freight:
Log in to the Shipwell platform (app.shipwell.com).
Select New from the left side bar, and select Quote.
On the New Quote page, select Less than Truckload from the Mode options. Dry Van will be selected automatically.
Select your Customer Account (if it’s not already filled in), and fill in your Pickup & Delivery information. Fill in your Shipping Items information as well, including Product Description Quantity, Packaging, Total Weight, Length, Width, Height, and Freight Class.
If you’ve shipped this item before and saved it, you can also select the product from Product > Load from Products.
Note: When adding accessorials or picking up/delivering to a residential area, you may see a price difference when receiving your instant rates.
Once your shipment information is filled out, select Get Quotes.
You’ll see instant LTL rates available to you.
You may also sort your options by Cheapest, Earliest Delivery, or Guaranteed. Review your options, and press Select on the rate you’d like to book.
Once you’ve selected your Rate, you’ll see a Confirm Details page, listing all of the shipment destination instructions, contact details, and shipment item details.
Start by entering a Shipment Name, Purchase Order, and Additional Notes for Carrier. Review the Financials and add a markup (if necessary).
Then, enter the contact details for both the origin and the destination of your shipment. You can also save the addresses and contact information for future use. Include any instructions for the carrier, such as going to a specific dock.
Please fill in any additional information as needed, such as accessorials.
Tip: If this is an item you ship frequently, you can also save the product.
Once you’re ready, press Schedule Pickup and Print BOL.
Once booked, you’ll get your BOL document.
If you selected to send the BOL to additional recipients, they’ll receive an email:
You’re all set!
You’ll now see your shipment in the platform with your details, the carrier information, messaging, tracking, documents, and much more.
