Why Is LTL Freight So Expensive?

LTL freight costs are determined by a number of variables, including fuel price, driver compensation and maintenance. Due to a shortage of drivers in the industry, driver pay has increased to attract qualified workers. Your personal shipment cost is based on factors such as weight, density, classification, etc.
