Third-party cargo insurance is comprehensive and highly recommended for shippers moving valuable or fragile LTL freight.
An LTL shipment‚Äôs dimensions should be calculated as a rectangle based on the shipment‚Äôs most expansive points, including packaging.
The easiest way to ensure you correctly classify your LTL freight is to obtain a subscription to CLASSIT, the online freight classification directory tool maintained by the NMFTA.
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.
The bill of lading is issued by the carrier based on the information provided by the shipper at the time of the quote. Once issued, the shipper gets a copy, and a copy is affixed to the shipment itself.
All shipments require a Bill of Lading. BOLs must be issued for goods to travel from Point A to Point B.
