What to Expect When You Have Never Used an LTL Carrier
If you have never had the opportunity to use an LTL carrier, you are going to 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.
This does not mean that you are not going to be getting reliable service from an LTL carrier, only that you shipments may take longer. At LTL Freight Shipping we have built a nationwide network of carriers that will work with you to ensure that your shipments reach their final destination in a reasonable amount of time and at a fair price.
