Here's some background on transit days and estimates to keep in mind while shipping.
In freight, everyone's biggest concerns are: 1) when their shipment will be picked up and 2) when their shipment will be delivered.
When you book on our dashboard, you will immediately get a sense of when you can expect both pick-up and delivery.
Right in the pricing module, you can see your selected mode of transportation and the number of transit days. Note that for shipments with a national LTL carrier partner outside of our network, estimated transit days are just that: estimates.
When estimating your delivery timeline, note that the "estimated days" don't include the pick-up day. So in the below screenshot, if you purchased the Best Value option and your freight picked up on a Monday, you could expect it to deliver on Wednesday.
Another important thing to remember: unless you purchase a guaranteed rate (recommended for time-sensitive shipments), your shipment is subject to delays.
In particular, "lower price" shipments tend to see the most delays as these are the lowest priority shipments for the third-party LTL carrier partners.
