If any accessorials are needed for your shipment, such as a liftgate, make sure your carrier is aware ahead of time so that they send an appropriately equipped truck.
Keep in contact with your carrier or 3PL while your shipments are in transit. In the case of any unexpected developments, it's best to know sooner rather than later.
Know the details of the pickup and delivery locations of your shipment. You can avoid unexpected charges like limited access or residential delivery fees if you make your carrier aware ahead of time.
LTL shipments usually range anywhere from 150 lbs to 10,000 lbs and are grouped together and transported on one trailer with the cargo of other shippers.
When looking at LTL transit times, it's important to remember is that they are estimates, not guarantees. When you receive a quote from a carrier for an LTL shipment, the estimated transit time given is not guaranteed and may be subject to any number of delays that can affect the actual amount of time it takes for the shipment to arrive at its destination.
While palletizing shipments is preferable, and will increase the transportability of the cargo, making your freight classification lower and less expensive, it is not required. LTL can accommodate many oversized, oddly-shaped, or uniquely-packaged shipments.
