Many producers face the issue of scale as they attempt to expand their business into a larger market. The difficulty in this problem is the financial risk that producers must take, but they can mitigate this by modifying the type of shipping used to transport their products. By using a carrier that offers LTL shipping, you can take the process slowly and ramp up production when you are ready. Here is a closer look at the differences in LTL vs. TL shipping.
LTL shipping includes the transport of any freight that does not require all the available cargo space within the truck. Here are some of the pros and cons of this method of shipping:
TL shipping is when the producer can create enough product to fill the entire bed of a truck for shipment. This is used most frequently when the truckload freight shipment weighs greater than 15,000 pounds.
