Having the widest possible window for both pick-up and delivery will help you have a better LTL experience.
If you have a large volume shipment it might be in your best interest to break down that freight into smaller LTL shipments and book it with different carriers on different days.
When you weigh and measure your cargo, be sure and include any packaging involved and measure from the widest and tallest points of the shipment.
Some LTL carriers offer international shipping, primarily to Canada and Mexico.
The first and most universal way to track your shipment through your LTL carrier is by using the bill of lading (BOL) number. Every BOL issued has a unique number assigned to it, and entering the BOL number into most LTL carriers‚Äô websites will provide the shipment‚Äôs most recent logged location. You can also use a PRO number.
Freight classification is determined based on four factors related to an item's transportability: density, stowability, liability, and handling.
