Because LTL shipments are often transferred between multiple trucks and terminals on their route, the volume of cargo and the number of trucks a carrier has working in a particular lane can affect how fast a load is picked up between transit hubs.
Providing ample lead time for carriers and securing capacity as soon as possible can vastly improve your ability to meet your transit time goals.
Be sure the information you provide for your freight quote and bill of lading is accurate, including the description and dimensions of your shipment, the addresses of the pickup and delivery locations, the date and time of the pickup, and any accessorials you need.
A reference number, PRO number, or BOL number can be used to track an item, other information such as a name or address cannot be used to track items. If you use a 3PL, you can usually track your shipment online through your account dashboard.
A valid LTL tracking number is typically the PRO number or BOL number for your shipment. This information can be found on your bill of lading and can be used to look up the last recorded location of your shipment.
A scammer may provide a fake tracking number to a customer to stall and shift blame for a missing package to the shipping service. In reality, your purchase never existed. To protect yourself from online shopping scams, confirm a site is legitimate before placing an order.
