With LTL Shipping Will My Freight Be Moved Along the Way?
Few companies today can afford delays in getting their shipments delivered to their clients. Before they hire an LTL shipping company, they need to know how quickly their freight is likely to be moved from their loading dock to its final destination. When you use FTL shipping you lease the whole truck and driver, but with LTL shipping you are only renting a portion of the space in the trailer as such your shipment is likely to be bundled with others heading the same destination.
Your LTL Shipping May Sit for Short Periods of Time
Because LTL shipping uses this bundled shipping method, your freight is likely to spend some time sitting in a terminal waiting for the next truck headed on the way to your shipment’s final destination. Your load could also end up being the last one in the truck to be delivered and this can also delay your shipment. We have created a network of freight carriers who do their best to get your freight delivered on time, but there are no guarantees.
