When your shipment is too big to bring to the post office, but too small fill up a truck, you’ve got Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) freight on your hands. LTL shipping is the most popular freight transport option for shippers.
LTL freight is generally shipped by truck, to and from your pickup and destination locations. It is a cost-effective, reliable, and efficient method for transporting freight.
In short, LTL shipping saves you money.
Freight shipping is the easiest way to move large and bulky items quickly and efficiently. Carriers have routes or “lanes” that they run daily. Some destinations have a lower demand on the return; and this lack of demand can save you a lot.
At FreightCenter, we know this and have established relationships with top carriers. With our volume shipping, we qualify for large discounts that we pass along to our customers.
There are many reasons to enlist the help of a third-party logistics provider. LTL freight shipping can be complicated. Variables such as lanes, weight, dimensions, and freight classification only add to the confusion.
Logistics providers are experts at simplifying this process for you. Trained Freight Agents can sort through all the details to maximize your savings and delivery times, so you can make the right logistics decisions for your business. They can also help schedule specialized LTL services for your shipments.
