Why Choose LTL Shipping For Your Business?

Why Choose LTL Shipping For Your Business?

The less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping market is estimated at $35 billion, and your company may benefit by taking advantage of this service. When it comes to your company's shipping practices as they relate to your Supply Chain, it pays to be as efficient as possible. However, generic shipping options might not be the best transportation solution for you. If you think that your business is wasting time and money waiting to fill full trucks, LTL freight companies could be right for you. 

What Is LTL Shipping?

LTL shipping involves shipments that do not fill an entire truck. These freight loads generally weigh between 150 and 10,000 pounds. If you choose this option, your cargo will likely share a trailer with another load of cargo, and you will only pay for your share rather than the entire truckload. The cost is based on various factors such as class, weight, origin zip, destination zip, specific commodity descriptions, and any supplementals such as liftgate delivery, residential delivery (RESI), or other special requirements.

Why Choose LTL?

LTL freight companies have a multitude of benefits, making it the best option for many.

  • Cost-Effective: Less than truckload rates are generally lower than traditional freight rates since you are only filling part of a truck.
  • Quick: When you don't need to wait to fill a trailer, you can ship goods more quickly. This helps your reputation and leads to happy customers.
  • Eco-Friendly: By sharing cargo space, you are reducing transportation emissions and your company's carbon footprint.
  • Customizable: LTL shipping comes with expedited and time-critical services, so you can get your items shipped even more efficiently.
  • Trackable: You deserve to be kept in the loop every step of the way. Transportation management software allows you to track your shipment online,
