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.
Use only the packaging you need to keep the items secure. Don‚Äôt overdo it and add unnecessary weight to your load because it will affect the price.
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.
Residential shipping with Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) is a great alternative to hiring movers, but you need to talk to a carrier to ensure they offer residential service and determine what the cost would be.
