Know the details of the pickup and delivery locations of your shipment. You can avoid unexpected charges like limited access or residential delivery fees if you make your carrier aware ahead of time.
There are a variety of LTL carrier types, including local, regional, and national carriers. Different carriers operate or specialize in transporting goods to and from certain locations. Depending on where you're shipping and what route your shipment will take, some carriers may offer better deals than others.
Freight terminals, or carrier terminals, are facilities where carriers can consolidate and organize shipments to be routed to their final destinations. Carriers have thousands of freight terminals across the country used for this purpose, and most of them can be used as places where shippers can drop off or pick up their shipments. Picking up or dropping off shipments at a freight terminal can save time and provide flexibility for shippers, and can save money on accessorial fees that may be required for a home or business delivery.
Typical LTL shipments are comprised of between 1 and 12 pallets, and usually weigh between 150 and 10,000 lbs.
