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‚Äô websites will provide the shipment‚Äôs 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 ‚Äú8, 10 or 12‚Äù digit code.
