Submitting an accurate description of your shipment when you get your quote is critical if you want to avoid additional charges on your freight invoice. The weight and dimensions should include all items, packaging, skids, and pallets used.
An LTL shipper is the party that wishes to ship their goods from one location to another. An LTL carrier is the company that transports the shipment for the shipper.
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.
