LTL freight shipping (Less-than-Truckload) is the most popular shipping option because it is the most economical way to transport shipments that are too big for parcel shipping and too small for a full truckload.
LTL freight is a cost-effective, reliable, and efficient method for transporting freight. LTL freight carriers compete for your business, so you save money.
LTL freight shipping saves you money.
Freight shipping is the easiest way to move large and bulky items quickly and efficiently. When you don't need a full truckload, you can save a lot of money by shipping LTL..

You might suspect that you can save money by reaching out to LTL freight carriers to get LTL freight quotes directly from them. Such is not the case. Only shippers with minimum volume contracts get good deals from carriers.
That's why LTL freight carriers substantially discount their rates for legitimate freight brokers and 3PLs (3rd Party Logistics providers) that are major shippers in their own right and handle all dealings between the carrier and the customer.
Aside from price, there are other 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 add to what can be a confusing process.

Agents also help schedule specialized LTL services for your shipments.
