Learn the difference between Parcel & LTL Freight shipping

Shipping Confidently with regular and expedited service.

At ShipCanada we help you move large packages "Parcels" and "LTL Freight" to and from all points with Canada and the U.S.   When it comes to large packages, Canadians often find it difficult to find the appropriate shipping company to use.  While there are many transport companies, it can be often difficult to know which one is appropriate for the package you are shipping.  ShipCanada offers residential pickup and delivery for both large and small packages including personal effects. 

Parcel Grith Calculation

Parcel Freight

When determining whether your shipment is considered parcel or LTL (Less than Truckload), we consider two things:


To be a parcel the total weight of the package must not exceed 150 lbs.  Different couriers have different threshholds, however 150 is usually a good reference point.


The Girth refers to the following formula: 2 x width + 2 x height + Length. This number should be less than 165 to be considered a parcel. If ground freight is not fast enough, ShipCanada can also offer Next-Day Air Freight options.  For the most efficient way to ship large items, please see our guide on how to prepare for shipping Our service for LTL freight extends to all Canadian provinces with both regular economy rates as well as fast-as-flight expedited service.Pallet Motor

For regular freight shipments with medium time sensitivity we offer economy over the road rates.   If your freight has to get to its destination faster our customers can choose Expedited LTL service which basically mirrors truckload transit times. Regular and expedited services are also available for International shipping requirments
