How to Choose an LTL Carrier: Types, Considerations, and More
When managing your supply chain operations and logistics performance, it’s important to be aware of which carriers you are leveraging for fulfillment and the core strengths of their coverage. Often a single-threaded approach with one LTL carrier is not the best way to optimize your logistics costs.
How Does LTL Pricing Work? A Quick Guide
LTL pricing is complex. There are many factors that are taken into account when pricing a shipment, primarily centered around how much space a shipment takes up on a truck and how much the shipment weighs. This brings us to the topic of NMFC classes- a critical component of getting best-in-class rates.
Thinking Outside the Box: LTL, Multiweight, Hundredweight, and Ground with Freight
There was a time when choosing the mode for a less than truckload shipment was easy: less than 150 lbs = parcel, 150 lbs or more = LTL. Rising freight costs and new service offerings have made this decision more complicated.
