Getting More from Your LTL Shipping Choices
When you ship more of your products using an LTL shipping service, you need to make sure that you are truly getting the best value for your money. It is easy to get hooked into using the same company for all of your needs, figuring that if they offer you a good rate on one shipment, you are getting the best price on all of your shipments. Unfortunately this may not be the case, but the only way you are going to know for sure is to request quotes from other companies.
Here you are faced with two problems; first you really do not have the time to spend seeking quotes from a list of LTL shipping companies and secondly how do you know that any of the companies you call are reliable. The best way to solve both problems at the same time is to go through a brokerage service. While they do not own any trucks of their own, the services they recommend will have already been vetted and with a single form you will get a series of quotes to choose from.
