As Ben noted, these cars did not have specialized load handling equipment, so, when needed, they could be used to haul any cargo that needed a boxcar.  That meant that they did travel off-road with some frequency, but it should also be clear that the off-road travel was NOT for LCL.

How common was it for these cars to travel off line?  I have a photo of a C of G freight train at Perry Ga in Oct 1952 with one of the Merchandise Service X29's in it.
