  • Enter your shipment’s origin/destination zip codes and origin/destination types.
  • Enter your shipment’s information with as much detail as possible.
  • If you have multiple packaging types or varying pallet dimensions, click Add Shipment Item and repeat the process above.

Select the best mode for your business.

At Flock Freight, we understand there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to moving your freight. That’s why we offer more service options for your shipments. Just give us your specifications and we’ll find the best mode for your freight based on your unique needs.

Premium Service

  • FlockDirect™ – Fast, low-damage, and carbon neutral shared truckload service.

Standard Services

  • Less than truckload – Competitively priced, real-time tracked LTL service.
  • Partial truckload – Budget-friendly, partial and consolidator services.
  • Truckload – Reliable TL service for time-sensitive shipments.

More flexibility means better rates.

Not on a strict shipping deadline? When you choose one- or two-day flexible pickup options, we’ll offer you a lower rate. This gives us more time to pool your freight into one emissions-slashing, technology-optimized shared truckload.

Note: If you choose “No Flexibility,” your shipment will pick up and deliver on the dates you originally requested.

How to track your shipments.

To easily track your shipment:

  • Log into the Flock Platform and find the shipment you want to track in your Quote History.
