Freight is technically the term used to describe the cargo for shipment. Air freight, on the other hand, is the cargo that is being shipped via air. This may be done using typical passenger airplane aboard the cargo area or through specialized cargo planes dedicated for this special industry.

It is primarily divided into three categories: a) household goods, b) express deliveries, c) parcel shipment, and d) freight shipments.

Each of which is priced depending on the system as provided by the National Motor Freight Classification. Each class also corresponds to the goods that can be shipped. Say for household goods, only those that can be considered furniture and household appliances can be subjected to price ranges and services provided in this area. Express deliveries, in general, include items such as mails, business papers and envelopes. Parcels, on the other hand, include those items that are usually boxed. Freight shipment though covers all other huge items that can’t be accommodated by services functioning in the lower classes.

Myrtle Beach Vacation Review

by Dave Jackson

It is not surprising that Myrtle Beach is the number one beach destination in the United States with over 60 miles of white sand and blue waters, according to Yahoo! Travel. It’s also the number one family beach in the country. You can plan for an affordable vacation to Myrtle Beach by choosing an accommodation that has its own kitchen and laundry appliances. Making your own breakfast in the morning can help save you money you would normally be spending to feed everyone, and if you have a large family, that could get expensive.

Myrtle Beach is a year round resort with very mild year round temperatures and warm summer days. Just remember to book your Myrtle Beach vacation early because this place is so very popular! Myrtle Beach is one of the top tourist spots on the Atlantic Coast.

Shopping for Antique Car Insurance

by Joey Hudson

Cars that are older than 30 years are considered antique cars and they are usually used in shows and for display purposes only. Most people do not take their antique car with them to work or even on pleasure trips. Because they are treated with “kid gloves,” so to speak, it can be a waste of money to get regular auto insurance for these cars as they are not driven on a regular basis. If you have an antique car, you are better off purchasing antique car insurance.

Prior to getting insurance, the car must be appraised by a certified appraiser. Your insurance company should be able to recommend a certified appraiser. The appraiser will determine the value of your car based upon the sale price of similar antique cars.
