What Exactly Is Zone Skipping with Reference to LTL Shipping?
While you are going to find for the most part that LTL shipping companies and parcel carriers tend to compete with each other for business, there are some companies who still use them in combination with each other. The best way to explain how this works is that you can 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 referred to as “Zone Skipping” and you will find that not all carriers offer this as they see it as a conflict of interest.
