Considering LTL for freight shipping

Terminology.

A shipper would consider using an LTL carrier for freight that meets the following conditions:

  • The load is not large enough to require its own truck.
  • The load is not fragile enough to require special handling.
  • There’s no time-critical or time-definite restriction on the freight.
  • Time-critical: The shipper sets delivery to the earliest possible time to accommodate particular shipping requirements.
  • Time-definite: A guarantee that the delivery will occur on a specific day or at a set time of day.
  • Transit time: The total amount of time from pickup through delivery.
