Printer-Friendly Tools for Professional Freight Packing

Whether you’re shipping pallets across town or spools across the country, there’s a right way (and a wrong way) to prepare your freight. We can help you pack like a pro.
When it comes to LTL (less-than-truckload) freight, proper packaging is essential to a successful delivery. To ensure your freight reaches its destination on time and intact, FedEx Freight and FedEx National LTL offer a dedicated website with all the packing tools you need:

  • Follow the steps. Plan it, prepare it, secure it, and ship it. These are the four basics of professional freight packaging — and they’re all explained on the website main page.
  • Skim the tips. From shelf-ready cartons to aircraft tires, freight comes in all shapes and sizes. See our quick tips for images and short descriptions.
  • Peruse the library. To quickly identify special handling needs, explore our visual library of common shipping labels.
  • Refer to our cheat sheet. For comprehensive freight packaging guidelines — including instructions for preparing and palletizing most types of shipments — download our PDF.
