Tips for preparing your LTL Shipment

Tightly securing boxes on pallets with wraps and straps can keep things together and prevent loose cargo from jostling around and sustaining damage.

Cargo insurance protects shippers from financial loss due to damaged or lost shipments. It pays out the amount shippers are insured for if an unexpected event happens while the freight is in transit.

Before you can get a quote, you need to have the necessary information to enter that will ensure the quote is accurate and the pickup can be made without any problems.

Common questions about LTL

What type of cargo insurance do I need?

Although most LTL experts consider it an absolute necessity, cargo insurance is not required for every shipment. It is up to the shipper to secure freight insurance for their items in order to protect them from potential damage while in transit.

What does cargo insurance exclude and include?

Cargo insurance coverages include shipment transportation via water, air, road, and rail. Exclusions include items with inherent vice, latent defects, or improper packaging.

What is the difference between bill of lading and delivery order?

A bill of lading is a document of title, a contract between shipper and carrier, and a receipt for services. A delivery order only facilitates the release of cargo by formally advising the carrier that all obligations have been settled and the appointed agent or consignee can now secure the cargo.
