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.
Forklift scales, freight class calculators, and dimensionalizers help shippers measure, weigh, and classify freight in minutes, saving the time and effort it takes to record accurate dimensions.
The weight and dimensions of your freight should include all items, packaging, skids, and pallets included in the shipment.
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.
LTL rates are determined by a variety of factors, and every LTL carrier is different. While freight class provides a standardized system of LTL freight classification, many other factors go into determining a freight rate, including weight and density, the route, the origin and destination, special instructions, and the carrier selected.
You can go straight to a freight carrier to get a quote or use a 3PL that lets you compare quotes from multiple carriers.
