Things You Need to Do Before an LTL Carrier Will Pick up Your Shipment
As you start to prepare a shipment for your LTL carrier to pick up and transport for you, there are certain things you will need to do. First you need to ask the carrier exactly how they want you to package your shipment. Some have special requirements and you need to know up front what they are. You must label each package in the shipment clearly and have the labels displayed in easy to read locations.
