Is My Shipment Going to End Up Stranded?
One of the reasons so many companies have been afraid to try using LTL carriers is that they are afraid that their shipments are going to end up being stranded in a warehouse or on a loading dock in the middle of nowhere. Although it is true the your shipment is likely to spend a little time sitting around as it waits for the next truck headed on its way to its final destination, it does not mean it will sit around growing mold.
The LTL carriers in the LTL Freight Shipping network are not likely to guarantee your delivery date; this is standard with this type of shipping, but you can guarantee that your freight shipment will be moved on down the line between trucks on the way to being delivered. It is not unusual for a shipment to transfer between trucks as this is the reason why LTL shipping is a very affordable form of shipping.
