How Payment Works in LTL


uShip LTL Published Rates shipments are paid for up front, before the execution of the shipment. The cost of a uShip LTL Published Rates shipment is entirely based on the information you enter during the quoting process. The weight & dimensions, location type for pickup & delivery, and any & all accessorials/additional services required to complete the shipment must be accurately entered into the quoting process in order to avoid additional charges after booking.

If any of the information entered is incorrect or other services are required to complete the shipment, the booking party is responsible for any additional charges levied by the carrier after the initial payment.

Please Note: If the shipper/consignee requests a service at pick-up/delivery the carrier will not invoice the shipper/consignee for the service, per the carrier’s rules tariff - “If the shipment is prepaid to uShip the bill must go through the same party.” This charge is then passed onto the booking party, who is fiscally obligated for all the costs pertaining to the execution of the shipment, per the uShip User Agreement.
