What is LTL?
- LTL most frequently consists of the movement of 1-6 standard size pallets. Weights can vary but range from 100 lbs to 10,000 lbs. Anything over 12 feet can be considered for volume LTL, consolidation, or dedicated truckload.
Is LTL a good fit for my company?
- LTL is beneficial for shippers who make freight easy for the carrier to handle. Also, carriers will charge additional fees to go beyond your standard shipment. Carriers are built for speed and efficiency so ease of access as well as shipping and receiving times come into play.
How much notice do carriers need to schedule a pick up?
- All carriers will need a 2-hour window for pick-up which makes communication essential to avoid service issues.
