Once a customer has scheduled a pickup for the shipment - via phone or email the freight carrier company will get the notification of where to pick up, what to pick up (commodity), how much they’ll be picking up. The pickup location is called as the SHIPPER. Once the shipment leaves the pickup spot, it heads back to the original terminal - where the crew will remove the freight from the truck, scan the PRO Numbers (for tracking purposes) and from there will begin to load the freight back on to trucks heading out of the terminal. This begins the transit process. Once in the transit process, the shipment walks to the last stage of the chain - where it is delivered to the destination terminal, which ends the transportation process.
