Can You Count on LTL Carriers?
If you have been thinking about contracting with LTL carriers to handle your shipping, but are worried that these carriers might not be reliable and your freight could end up sitting in a warehouse for days, you need to know if this something you can expect. In certain instances this may be the case to a certain extent as your shipment is likely to switch from one truck to another on its way to your customer.
LTL Carriers Use More Than One Truck to Haul Your Shipment
This is how LTL carriers work, each shipment is loaded on a truck that is loaded with other freight headed in the same general direction. Your shipment may have to change trucks several times on its way and this is why they cannot guarantee a delivery date. We work with some of the top LTL carriers in the country to move your freight from your shipping dock to your customers as quickly as possible.
