If any accessorials are needed for your shipment, such as a liftgate, make sure your carrier is aware ahead of time so that they send an appropriately equipped truck.
Keep in contact with your carrier or 3PL while your shipments are in transit. In the case of any unexpected developments, it's best to know sooner rather than later.
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.
The LTL shipping process consists of getting a quote, booking a shipment, packaging and preparing the shipment, pickup, transportation, and delivery. The details of the shipment are negotiated and determined when you receive a quote from an LTL carrier.
Every BOL issued has a unique number assigned to it, and entering the BOL number into most LTL carriers websites will provide the shipment's most recent location.
You can usually find the number at the top right hand corner of the bill of lading, next to the words 'BOL #'. The number is always made up of 4 letters (the carrier's code), followed by an 8, 10 or 12 digit code.
