Incorporating LTL Into Your Supply Chain
Now that you know that LTL rates are determined by the NMFTA, which uses information such as your freight’s class, pick-up location, drop-off location, zip code, and more, let’s take a look at how you can use LTL freight shipping to streamline your operation.
In order to decrease costs, many consignees want freight delivered in as large a quantity as possible. But sometimes, due to high demand for specific raw goods or consumables, a smaller shipment is required. Rather than decreased costs with large quantities being the priority, a smaller shipment arriving quicker will be valued more. LTL freight allows you to take advantage of the thousands of carriers who offer guaranteed service.
