What makes a shipment in-network?

There are two types of shipments that are considered in-network: 

  1. Less-than-truckload (LTL) freight that is picked up and delivered within a Mothership local zone 
  2. Full truckload (FTL) / Dedicated freight anywhere in the U.S. 

Both are in our network because we dispatch verified carrier on the Mothership network to handle these freight types. Once you book an in-network shipment, we'll dispatch a carrier to your specified pick-up location through our mobile application.


  • Same-day pick-up and delivery within a Mothership local zone if booked before 1pm
  • Free liftgate and residential delivery
  • Ultra-precise freight tracking on a map
  • Completely paperless - BOLs are instantly generated and stored on a digital dashboard and digital signatures are collected at point-of-delivery
