Subject: AIM Freight Carriers
At this time, the Texas Education Agency has freight contracts for shipping of all instructional materials (IM) with only two carriers: Central Freight Lines, Inc. and Lone Star Overnight. Central Freight is the contracted freight carrier for shipments to the Special Textbook Redistribution Center (STRC) with a weight of ≥ 151 pounds. Lone Star is the contracted freight carrier for shipments to the STRC with a weight ˂ 151 pounds.
Some districts continue to ship accessible IM using carriers that no longer have active contracts. To avoid having to pay freight charges with local funds, you must use only the correct state-contracted carrier. Beginning Monday, February 13, any district choosing to use non-contracted carriers will be responsible for all resulting freight charges. Please contact the IM Division at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Central Freight 1-800-782-5036
Lone Star Overnight 1-800-800-8984
