Tips for preparing your LTL Shipment

You need to provide the zip codes and addresses of the pickup and delivery locations, as well as the type of places they are. Noting whether a location is residential or commercial helps carriers know what they will need to successfully complete the shipment.

Moving conveyers, labeling machines, and warehouse scales can all help streamline warehouse organization and shipping.

Third-party cargo insurance is comprehensive and highly recommended for shippers moving valuable or fragile LTL freight.

Common questions about LTL

Which document is used as a proof of delivery?

Proof of delivery (POD) documents accompany shipments and deliveries, and are signed by the consignee upon the delivery of the shipment once all the undamaged items are accounted for.

What is the main purpose of a bill of lading?

A BOL, or bill of lading, is a document that serves as a contract between shippers and carriers, a receipt for services, and a document of title. The bill of lading contains all the information necessary for the carrier and driver to execute the freight shipment and invoice it correctly and should be provided to the carrier upon pickup, as well as a copy attached to the shipment itself.

Who legally issues a bill of lading?

A BOL is often issued by your carrier, broker, or forwarder, and you just have to fill out the details in the blank form. A copy is given to the shipper and a copy is affixed to the shipment itself. The BOL includes all the information necessary to complete the shipment, including names and addresses of the shipper and consignee, a description of the freight, and any necessary accessorials.
