Do you ship smaller loads that don't require an entire trailer? If so, it may be time to explore less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments. LTL combines smaller shipments into one trailer. That saves money, because shippers using LTL don't pay for empty trailer space. LTL shipments also can improve flexibility and efficiency.
LTL carriers can often ship loads for a fraction of the cost of full truckload carriers, which require an entire truck and trailer.
Because LTL shipments often combine multiple loads and make several different stops, finding the right LTL trucking provider is crucial. An ideal partner will create a solution that initiates cost savings, mitigates risk, optimizes your network and meets specific delivery needs.
The complex pricing structure of LTL freight can include factors such as freight classifications, weight pricing, freight provisions, destination and speed. The right partner will simplify this formula, so you get the best value to move your freight. Ask yourself the following questions when choosing an LTL partner.
