Things Your LTL Carrier Expects You to Do Before They Pick Up Your Shipment
As you are packaging your shipment so that the LTL carrier you have chosen can pick it up and deliver it for you, there are certain steps you must take. You should start by checking to see if they have any particular way that they want it packaged. You will find that some carriers have specific packaging standards. The next thing you need to do is make that you label each package very clearly and that you always place the labels where they can be seen.
All of the LTL carrier companies in our network at LTL Freight Shipping will require you to submit a bill of lading and the contents of your shipment must match exactly what your bill of lading states. The slightest error can cause your shipment to be delayed while everything is straightened out. As long as you check with each carrier to see what their special requirements are up front and you should never have any problems.
