LTL shipping and multi-carrier software

November 3, 2014 at 2:02 PMAdministrator
Multi-carrier shipping software can improve a warehouse's LTL and FTL freight shipping practices. LTL stands for "less than truck load" shipping. It is the movement of smaller, lighter packages that weigh anywhere between 151 and 10,000 pounds. These shipments do not take up all of the space available in a carrier's truck. Senders must only pay for the space they use up in the truck and carriers fill their semis with goods from multiple clients. On the other hand, FTL shipping will likely use every inch of a truck to ship items out. This stands for "full truck load" and should only be used when economically viable. [More]
