Tips for preparing your LTL Shipment

LTL cargo is typically handled, loaded, unloaded, and reorganized multiple times at different freight terminals while in transit, so it is critical to have the proper packaging, labeling, and paperwork so no issues arise that may delay delivery.

More durable items can be shipped in standard corrugated cardboard boxes. For the most protection, make sure the boxes are new or have retained their sturdiness, avoid loose space inside the boxes, secure well with packing tape, and label them clearly.

Wooden crates provide the highest level of protection for your shipment and are used primarily for items that are expensive, fragile, and easily damaged. The main drawback to crating is that it can be expensive, and the added weight and size can often result in a higher cost to ship, even for smaller items.

Common questions about LTL

Can a bill of lading have two consignee?

There are many kinds of BOLs that have different terms in the contract and are used in different shipping scenarios.

What information needs to be on a bill of lading?
