Will My LTL Shipping Move Quickly?
Most companies whose business is based on shipping their products and being able to get them delivered in a reasonable amount of time cannot afford excessive delays. When you hire an LTL shipping company you are leasing only one small portion of the trailer and there is likely to be several other companies doing the same thing, with their merchandise that is headed in the same general direction.
With this combined method of LTL shipping it is quite likely that your freight will spend at least a certain amount of time sitting in a terminal waiting for the next truck headed to the next terminal on the way to your final destination. Your load could end up being the last one on the truck to be delivered which can also delay your shipment. At LTL Freight Shipping we work with freight carriers who do their best to get your freight delivered on time, but there are no guarantees.
