Freight Booking with ShipHero

All freight shipments must be scheduled with the ShipHero warehouse. We cannot accept unscheduled shipments at any of our locations.

If you are sending in freight with your own carrier to one of our DC’s please email freight@shiphero.com or call (646) 854-1129 with the following information and we will promptly get you set up with a dock time and date (72 hr notice required):

  • You must provide your company name and ShipHero shipping plan number
  • Client Name & DC delivering to
  • ShipHero Fulfillment PO Number
  • Number of pallets (skids)
  • Carrier making the delivery along with the respective PRO number

If a truckload shipment we require a 2 hour unload time.

**Note: Shipments that are side loaded will incur an additional fee.**

If sending a floor loaded delivery we ask for a 72 hr advance notice and prior approval from the ShipHero Fulfillment team for added labor.  We do not normally do live unloads due to the nature of the hours needed to unload and sort this shipment. Please also provide the number of free days allowed from the carrier as we may require the container to be dropped at our facility. 

Need a freight quote? We can help you with that.

Email freight@shiphero.com with the below required information. We will provide a quote and await your confirmation. You must provide your company name and ShipHero shipping plan number.

Provide the following for every shipment:

  • Number of pallets
  • If not a Full Truck load (Max of 28 Pallets & 42,000 lbs) we need the weight & dimensions of each pallet
  • Brief description of the commodity 
  • ShipHero Fulfilment PO Number & Client Name

In order to send a truck into your facility we will need the following:

  • Name & Address of pickup
  • Contact Name & Phone Number
  • Email address to send BOL for pick up
  • Any carrier restrictions & Dock Hours
  • Let us know if a lift gate will be needed for loading and pick up

Preparing the Shipment for Pick-Up

Once a member from our team has sent the Bill of Lading for pick up please do the following to prepare the freight:

  • Print 2 copies of the BOL. (one for you and one for the driver. They will place a pro number on your copy which you should retain for tracking purposes)
  • Place the pallet tags (labels from your shipping plan) on the outside of the pallet that are produced from the Shipping Plan once the PO has been placed
