How Do You Prepare Vitamins & Supplements 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 be packaged so it will not be damaged in transit and will not present a danger to other shipments on the truck.
Package your goods in double-thick cardboard boxes. Use corner protectors to make sure the original product packaging inside the box doesn’t get dented if your shipment is bumped in transit. Shrink wrap the boxes and band them to pallets, being careful not to extend beyond the edges of the pallet on any side.
