The Best Way to Ship Roofing Tiles

Shipping roofing tiles in large quantities is usually done via full truckload freight, on flatbed trailers, or in dry vans. If you are shipping a small number of roofing shingles that can be shipped in a dry van rather than a flatbed, you may be able to save money by shipping LTL (less than truckload).

How Do You Prepare Roofing Tiles for LTL Freight 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 gets packaged so it will not be damaged in transit and will not present a danger to other shipments on the truck.

Roofing shingles are palletized in their original boxes. If there are openings in the boxes through which tiles could be damaged in transit, you will want to use wrap the boxes in packaging material before banding them to the pallets.
