How Do You Prepare a Floor Tile Load for Ltl Shipping?
How a given shipment of floor tile should be prepared for shipping iwll depend on several factors, including the material the tiles are made out of as well as the size of the order.
Some types of floor tile require special handling. Ceramic tile, for example, needs to be shipped on edge to prevent breakage. Other tiles might be fine when stacked flat, but have a limit as to how much weight can be stacked on one pallet or in one crate. Your floor tile shipment might also require a specialty truck with air ride suspension.
To be sure your shipment arrives safely we highly recommend that you contact the tile manufacturer for packaging and special handling instructions.
