LTL refers to Less than Truckload shipping and is mainly used when shippers don’t have enough freight to fill an entire truckload. Whether you can fill an entire truck with inventory or not, we’ll find you the best LTL shipping solutions. When you book LTL shipping you only pay for the space your freight occupies.
Sharing the truckload allows us to give you a cost-effective shipping solution. Instead of your freight going from point A to point B, LTL shipping includes several pit-stops called “terminals,” allowing seamless routing and delivery for each freight load in the most time effective manner. If your cargo doesn’t require next-day delivery, LTL shipping is the top choice for routing smaller load sizes.
Our logistics experts will provide you with several delivery options. We additionally offer expedited and hot shot shipping for emergency situations and urgent delivery needs.
The price of LTL shipping takes two main factors into account: (1) Class and (2) Lane.
What Is Freight Class? Freight Class yields the heaviest weight when it comes to pricing. Class takes into account the dimensions, weight, handling, stowability, and liability of freight loads.
Typically, the heavier the freight the cheaper it is to ship given the same size freight. This is referred to as freight density, the denser the freight the lower the freight class. Freight class ranges from 50 to 400 with lower classes resulting in lower pricing.
