Who’s Fault is it Anyway: Scheduling LTL Pickups

A shipper books a pickup with a 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. pickup window. The carrier misses the pickup three days in a row. Whose fault is it anyway? In this case, the shipper. Here’s why. 

In this scenario, the shipper wanted to schedule a pick-up for the time that was most convenient for them, failing to realize that LTL carriers usually make deliveries in the morning and pick-ups in the afternoons. After three failed pick-up attempts, the shipper reached out to Koho. 

We explained to the shipper that though they did, in fact, provide the standard 4 hour window for LTL pick ups, it was the wrong 4 hours.  LTL pick-ups usually occur from 1pm to 4pm. 

By setting the pick-up window from 10am to 2pm the shipper was only actually allowing 1 hour for pickup.

Once the shipper realized the issue and extended his pick-up window his shipment was picked up the very next day.
