While there are many businesses who have taken advantage of LTL freight there are those who haven’t even thought of it as a viable option. LTL or Less Than Truckload freight allows businesses to ship small loads of freight without having to pay for the use of an entire trailer. This allows those businesses to realize a rather significant cost savings especially if multiple shipments are required over time. It can also allow businesses to get their freight out in a timely manner rather than having to wait until they do have a truckload.
Typically Less Than Truckload freight involves no more than ten thousand pounds of weight which could include several shipments from various businesses, manufacturers, etc which are all loaded onto a single truck. If you are looking to ship around one hundred fifty pounds or more, LTL freight is perfect for your needs. One of Southeastern Freight Lines’ specialties is its carpet shipping abilities. We are able to work with industrial size carpet rolls that would be infinitely more difficult to ship using other types of freight solutions.
When determining whether your business should use LTL shipping, it is important to look at some of the hows involved in the decision process.
