ShipStation creates labels for small parcel shipments and does not support LTL or FTL shipping services (except for some special FedEx services detailed below).
If you need LTL freight shipping, we encourage you to contact uShip, the industry's only LTL marketplace, to see if they can meet your freight shipping needs.
UPS and FedEx do offer some special services related to freight through ShipStation.
UPS Ground with Freight Pricing: Currently only available for U.S.-based accounts. ShipStation does support creating labels using the UPS Ground with freight pricing for multi-package shipments over 150lbs.
This is still considered a UPS Ground service, but it uses the freight pricing model instead of the small parcel pricing model. This is not a true LTL service and no bill of lading is required or provided.
Go to the UPS support site for more information on the requirements for this service or contact your UPS account rep to discuss if your shipments qualify. If they do, review the Additional Features section of our UPS article for details on how to create this type of label.
FedEx Freight: FedEx Freight is an air freight service that allows you to ship palletized freight over 150lbs. While these are considered LTL services, these services do not require and will not provide a bill of lading.
FedEx Freight options in ShipStation include:
FedEx 1Day® Freight, FedEx 2Day® Freight, FedEx 3Day® Freight, FedEx First Overnight® Freight, FedEx International Economy® Freight, FedEx International Priority® Freight.
Available services may differ depending on which country your ShipStation account is based in.
