Understanding the Difference Between Freight and Parcel

So, you’re running a manufacturing business and you now need to transport your goods from your warehouse or factory. You go out, contact your trusted logistics service providers in Lake Orion, Michigan, and ask them for their parcel delivery service. Or perhaps their freight delivery service. Wait – what? Which service should you get?

If you got confused, then there is no shame in that. Most people, most businesses, do not know the difference between parcel and freight. And, because we are your favorite purveyor of freight shipping services in Michigan, we’re here to let you know the difference between the two.

Moving goods in boxes, individually, is called parcel shipping. And yes, that includes even colossal boxes – the size doesn’t determine the shipping type. Moving goods together in large containers, or by the truckload, is called freight shipping. As you can see, the volume of the shipment determines the type.

If you have any questions about our services or if you are confused about any of them, we at DLS Worldwide – DTW will be glad to help you out. Even when it comes to having questions about our transportation management software, we won’t let you down. We want all our customers to make informed decisions and choices about the services they want to get from us. Call us today, and we’ll help you sort it out.
