HOW DO YOU PREPARE AN AUTO BODY PARTS SHIPPING LOAD FOR LTL SHIPPING?

You save money with LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping because your shipment shares the truck with loads from other shippers. It's important that your cargo be packaged so it will not be damaged in transit and will not present a danger to other shipments on the truck.

Package your parts in crates or bulk boxes. Bulk boxes are designed to fit on pallets. The walls of the boxes can be double or even triple wall thick often made of corrugated cardboard. Bulk boxes have removable tops and are best used for the smaller parts traveling with the shipment.

Larger parts should be packaged securely in crates for the highest level of protection.
