Tips for preparing your LTL Shipment

An LTL shipment’s dimensions should be calculated as a rectangle based on the shipment’s most expansive points, including packaging.

The easiest way to ensure you correctly classify your LTL freight is to obtain a subscription to CLASSIT, the online freight classification directory tool maintained by the NMFTA.

LTL cargo is typically handled, loaded, unloaded, and reorganized multiple times at different freight terminals while in transit, so it is critical to have the proper packaging, labeling, and paperwork so no issues arise that may delay delivery.

Common questions about LTL

Can bill of lading be issued before shipment?

The bill of lading is issued by the carrier based on the information provided by the shipper at the time of the quote. Once issued, the shipper gets a copy, and a copy is affixed to the shipment itself.

Can an importer take delivery of goods without original bill of lading?

All shipments require a Bill of Lading. BOLs must be issued for goods to travel from Point A to Point B.

What if there is no bill of lading?

A letter from the shipper should be prepared detailing that the bill of lading was lost. The carrier will typically need a letter of indemnity from the shipper, which releases the carrier from liability.
