What is freight?
Freight is simply defined, “any goods that are transported by truck, train, ship, or aircraft.” Freight, quite literally, transports all sorts of goods and is the reason you can walk into a store today and buy the latest product, whether it is the new Iphone or your groceries.
Can I track my shipment?
Yes. Once your goods are picked up by the freight carrier, you will be emailed a tracking number from 3rd Cargo.
Why do i have to pay upfront?
We need your payment up front because freight carriers expect to be paid before they ship. It is similar to going to the post office and mailing a letter. You pay for the postage before you mail the letter.
Nice idea, but does this really work?
Yes, in fact over one million people have used CED to save up to 75% on their deliveries.
How do I know the transport provider is trustworthy?
CED operates as a middleman, the Escrow System confers insurrance for Sellers and Buyers also. Also, every transport provider on CED is sent an tracking number, so their physical location has been verified before they can quote.
Are you going to bug me with sales phone calls?

In fact we won’t even ask you for your phone number on this contact form.We use your phone number only to inform you about your delivery.
What about insurance?
