- If you choose “Daily pickup” a dispatch will NOT be sent to the carrier.

- Choosing “Schedule a pickup” will do exactly as it says once the shipment is completed.

You will also have access to your Product Catalog and Quote Preferences, which we will keep separately under LTL or Parcel. (Product Catatlog)
