Will There Be More Than One Carrier Handling My LTL Shipment
If I hire a particular LTL carrier to take care of my LTL shipment, are they going to be the only carrier handling it or will there be others as it goes from my shipping docks to those of my customer? In most cases, it depends on what you are shipping, where it is going and what type of shipping arrangements you have made with the carrier. For the most part your shipment will be carried by one company from your docks to your customer.
