What Exactly Is Zone Skipping?
In general, you will find that most LTL shipping companies and parcel carriers work in direct competition with each other for every dollar they can get. However you will find that there are still some companies that use them as a combined service. For example, the company might use an LTL carrier to take your freight to the appropriate state and then switch to a parcel carrier service for the final leg of the delivery. This is known as “Zone Skipping” and you will find that not all 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. If you use it 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.
