General Freight

A general freight transport carrier (such as Sherritt and Sons) is a trucking company that can move a wide variety of commodities in standard trailers – whether full truck loads or less than full (LTF) truck loads.

Freight could be construction materials such as steel, bricks, concrete panels, insulation, or it could be any other type other type of freight that doesn’t fit into a freight market niche. For example, non-perishable food is general freight. Food products that need to be frozen or refrigerated are classified as refrigerated goods.
