I shipped out some tires and rims using UPS Freight a while back and it took the same amount of time that a regular box would.

This map should give you a rough estimate. Most LTL, or freight carriers, generally have similar transit times.

Re: how long does it take to ship freight?

i work at a freight company. NORMALLY. if they drop something off at the terminal or have it picked up it will be shipped out that DAY. Then it will go on a truck and depending on how far you are away from the shipping terminal it could be there the next day or it could be there in 3 days.
