Preparing LTL Shipments

We do offer interest insurance for shippers, in case there is damage to the freight or if the freight is lost. To make sure all LTL shipments are fully prepared, be sure you provide the proper documentation, dimensions, labeling and proper packaging, and know how to correctly load and unload shipments.
Size Limitations for LTL Freights
In the majority of regions, the LTL loads must be under 8’ 6” wide and 13’ 6” tall. If they are bigger than this, they would be classified as oversized. If they are oversized, they would require specialized equipment. Most of the time the LTL loads are shipped with pallets. Be sure you know which size of pallets to use for all of your shipments. If you have questions about this, you can ask us today.
Tracking LTL Shipments
We do allow our customers to track their LTL shipments. You will just put in your bill of lading number and you can see all of the tracking progress. The tracking is a bit different depending on which carrier has been used, so keep this in mind when you are following your shipment to its intended destination.
