What to Look for in LTL Carriers
With such a high number of LTL carriers traveling the roads today, it can be very hard to know which ones are going to provide you with the highest quality service at the most reasonable prices. You need to look at each company’s reputation for getting your deliveries to their destinations in a timely fashion. Although no LTL carrier is going to guarantee delivery, you still have a right to expect reasonable transit times and many companies offer this.
You will also need to take a good hard look at each of the LTL carrier’s claims to damage ratio as this gives you a good idea of the percentage they pay in cases where your freight is damaged while in their hands. The industry standard is about 1.25 to 1.3%.
