The most common reason for an account hold is a past-due outstanding balance. Therefore, the fastest way to remove a hold is to make an immediate payment of your past-due balances via our online payment system (YayPay). Intent to pay, or a signed check, is not sufficient to lift an account hold in most cases.
If your account is paid in full but remains on hold, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can investigate and resolve the issue.
Alternatively, if your account is on hold because you have reached your credit limit, please reach out to your Account Manager for assistance.

In the unfortunate event that you have a claim, Flock Freight will assist you in facilitating the process with the carrier. Claims rules and regulations are governed by federal law under the Carmack Amendment and vary based on any outside agreements in place. Typically, claims resolve within 120 days after the carrier acknowledges receipt of a claim.
Resolution could include full payment of your claim, an offer to settle the claim for a lower amount, or potentially declination of your claim if the carrier finds the claim submission to be invalid. In any situation, we strive to provide you with a smooth claims submittal process and consistent communication on the status of your claim. Please visit our claims information page to learn more.
Please visit our disputes information page to find information about the various types of additional charges and how to handle them.
Feel that a charge isn’t valid? We’ll contact the carrier on your behalf to dispute the fee. When you’re ready to file a dispute, fill out the disputes form on our disputes information page to get started.
Great question — and we’ll get to the bottom of it for you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:

Below are the most common additional charges for LTL shipments and what they mean:
- Re-weigh – When a shipment weighs more than what was quoted for or listed on the BOL.
- Re-class – When a shipment moves at a different freight class than what was quoted for or listed on the BOL.
- Residential – When an address is zoned as a residence. If your home-based business is in a residential area, it is considered a residence.
- Accessorial fees – When a shipment requires additional services that were not quoted for or listed on the BOL. Typical accessorial fees include liftgate services, notification calls, inside pickup or delivery, and more.
This could happen for a few different reasons. It’s possible that there was an additional charge for a service or change in shipment details. It’s also possible the shipment was booked after the original quote expired. If neither of these scenarios are applicable to you, visit our disputes information page to learn more about filing disputes for a Flock Freight shipment.
When the BOL we provide isn’t used, the carrier can bill you directly for the shipment brokered by Flock Freight. If this happens, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com and including your invoice number and/or quote number. We’ll work with the carrier to update the paying party to Flock Freight.

The Flock Platform uses sophisticated algorithms to move your freight shipment on a truck in the Flock Carrier Network. After you submit the details of your shipment in the Flock Platform, we match your freight with a reliable carrier on the shipping lane you need. We screen, vet, and routinely audit our carrier partners to ensure we consistently provide the best possible service to our customers.
When we have more lead time, our costs lower and we can pass those savings right on to you! But don’t worry — if you have a last-minute shipment and need a same-day pickup, your freight quote will still be at a low rate. Planning ahead simply means that we can give you an even better freight quote.
Here’s how our prices change based on pickup day:
- Same-day pickup: Low Price
- Next-day pickup: Lower Price
- 2 or more days out: Lowest Price

This map shows Flock Freight’s primary shipping lanes where you can get FlockDirect, our shared truckload service, at our most competitive rates!
Flock Freight gives you two options for shipping your freight: FlockDirect and Standard LTL. Each shipping method comes with different costs, transit times, and perks (such as insurance at no-added cost). Here’s a breakdown of your options:
- FlockDirect: FlockDirect is our premier shared truckload (STL) shipping option. Flock Freight is the only logistics provider able to guarantee STL shipping at the point of sale. Perks include hubless transit, no LTL accessorial fees, reduced carbon footprint, up to $100k insurance, and more!
- Standard: This is our basic LTL shipping offering. We include all the perks of shipping with Flock Freight, such as pre-made freight documentation (BOL, POD, invoice) and access to our outstanding customer support teams. Shipments that move LTL will typically travel through the hub-and-spoke network.
When booking a shipment in the Flock Platform, you will have the option to enter the receiver’s email address so they can track an inbound shipment. Flock Freight will send an email notification to the receiver as soon as the carrier picks up the shipment.
Inside the notification email, receivers can click the “View and Track Shipment” button to navigate to a receiver tracking page. There, the receiver will have limited, read-only access to the shipment details and tracking information. Receivers can continue to check this link throughout the shipment’s journey for delivery status updates.
To track your shipment, simply log into the Flock Platform and find the shipment you want to track in your Quote History. Click the “Tracking” tab just to the right of the “Order Details” tab. Follow your shipment from order confirmation all the way to delivery.
