Are LTL Carriers Reliable?
“We have been thinking about contracting with LTL carriers to handle our shipping, but we are worried that they might not be reliable and our freight could end up sitting in a warehouse for days. Is this something we can expect?” In some ways 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.
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. At LTL Freight Shipping, we work with some of the best LTL carriers in the country to move your freight from your shipping dock to your customers as quickly as possible.
