What is LTL Shipping?
LTL shipping stands for less than truckload shipping. This is a great option for anyone who needs to ship medium-sized shipments and is less expensive than full truckload shipping. You will share the truck with other shipments and therefore the costs will be cheaper than having an entire truckload. This type of shipment can be used for commercial or personal purposes.
How does freight delivery work?
Freight shipping is the transportation of goods, commodities and cargo in bulk by ship, aircraft, truck or intermodal via train and road. Freight carriers are often multiple modes of transport to complete their deliveries (i.e., trucks that may also fly items between airports). Freight shipments can be transported domestically or internationally by land, air or sea
The process starts by first gathering shipment information. We need to understand the weight, dimensions and destination of your shipment. Freight shipments are typically billed based on weight or volume measurements (such as cubic feet). Freight payments can be made via credit card, wire transfer or check
Then we need to choose the appropriate shipping method, based on the delivery date requirements and the nature of the package. We then need to pack your shipment. Freight shipments can be packaged using a variety of methods, including boxes, crates and bundles. The shipment is then labeled and addressed. Freight shipments are typically labeled with the carrier’s name, address of origin and destination as well as any other applicable information
Finally there is a review process to make sure that all shipment documentation is complete before it leaves our facility for delivery. We will sign off on your paperwork in order to finalize pickup arrangements. Next we’ll load your shipment onto the shipping carrier and give you a tracking number so that you can follow its progress along the way. Your freight will then arrive at its destination!
