Package your freight properly so it can withstand all movement on the truck.
LTL is not designed for time-sensitive shipments. Transit time is a loose time-frame estimating the time it will take to get the freight from the origin terminal to the destination terminal.
If your freight needs specific accommodations they must be written on the Bill of Lading so the LTL truck driver understands how they will need to deliver your shipment.
While loose items can be transported via LTL freight, some carriers won't take loose boxes that can easily be palletized and wrapped for protection. Be sure and ask your LTL provider about the best way to prepare loose items you are planning to ship.
The best way to find good deals on LTL shipping and reduce freight costs is to work with a knowledgeable 3PL. A third party logisitics provider can find you the best rates with trusted carriers.
The minimum threshold for most LTL shipments is 150 lbs. You can ship single items that fall above this threshold, but most small individual items will need to be shipped through a parcel service.
