Be aware of your carrier's typical pickup and delivery schedules.
Precisely measure, weigh, and describe your shipment in order to get an accurate quote.
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.
PTL refers to partial truckload shipping, which is a hybrid between LTL and FTL (full truckload) shipping.
Limited access locations are defined by the following conditions: not open to the walk-in public during normal business hours, not having personnel readily available to assist with the delivery or pickup function, and not having access to loading dock or platform.
A limited access location is any destination that LTL trucks cannot enter and make a standard delivery or pickup. This means the driver will require more time and work to load, unload, and deliver a shipment. This can include not having a loading dock, the space being too small for a truck to enter, not having access during normal business hours, or not having personnel available to assist with the delivery.
