Will LTL Carriers Leave My Shipment Stranded?
Many companies are afraid to try using LTL carriers for fear that their shipments could end up being left to sit in a warehouse or on a loading dock forgotten. While it is true the your shipment might spend some time sitting around waiting for the next truck headed towards its final destination, this does not mean it will sit around collecting dust.
The LTL carriers used by LTL Freight Shipping may not be able to guarantee your delivery date; this is standard with this type of shipping. However, 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 and is preferred amongst small to medium businesses that typically ship loads under 10,000 pounds and less than six pallets.
