What Does Zone Skipping in LTL Shipping Mean?
Even though LTL shipping companies and parcel carriers typically compete with each other for business, some companies still use them together. As an example of this, you might use the LTL carrier to move your freight to the appropriate state and then switch to a parcel carrier to deliver it to your customers. This is known as “Zone Skipping” and you will find that not trucking services will do this as they see it as a conflict of interest.
However you will find that working with the carriers in our network at LTL Freight Shipping you may be able to take advantage of this type of service. When used properly, zone skipping can help you get your products delivered to your customers in a more timely fashion than trying to rely solely on the LTL shipping companies to carry them from your loading docks to their final destination.
