If you have never had the need to use an LTL carrier, you will find that using this type of commercial carrier is somewhat different than using an FTL carrier or a package service such as UPS or FedEx. This is because LTL carriers make their living carrying small loads to a single destination. Often these deliveries are completed in several stages rather than a single trip, so you will need to be prepared for the fact that your shipment could end up sitting in a warehouse for a short time waiting for the next truck to take it further down the road on the way to its destination.
