Due to the complexity of the LTL industry, transit times in the best conditions are just estimates, not guarantees.
Booking shipments early, giving carriers plenty of lead time, and making exceptions for delays and other unforeseen issues are the best ways to mitigate challenges you have no control over.
In order to avoid delays, make sure your paperwork is filled out correctly and completely, affixed to the shipment, and ready to be presented to the driver.
Most shipping containers that are loaded directly onto a truck for transport are full truckload shipments heading for a single location.
LTL freight classes represent a standardized method of classification for LTL freight based on the ease of movement. Ranking and classes are defined by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA).
Freight damage should always be far less than 1% of total shipments. If freight damage is over 1%, there is something wrong with the packaging, loading/unloading process or the carrier.
