Less than truckload fulfillment services are ideal for companies looking to ship freight but can’t fill an entire truckload. LTL shipments typically range from 5,000 to 10,000 pounds, while a full truckload can hold up to 44,000 pounds. Because shipments vary in size, LTL services offer you the ability to send less than full shipments while saving money and expanding your opportunities.
Ship Small Shipments
Don’t let having small shipments get in the way of growing your business! LTL fulfillment services offer you the opportunity to profit off your smaller shipments. In addition, these services provide competitive rates that will give you the ability to ship quickly and effectively.
Save Money with LTL Fulfillment Services
Because you won’t need to pay for an entire truckload, LTL fulfillment services offer you the ability to save money by paying for only a portion of a truck and sharing the overall cost with other companies. It is a common misconception that shipping smaller shipments must be more expensive, but that is not true! LTL services enable small businesses to expand their company at their own speed, working up to FTL.
How Your Rate Is Determined
At Beitler Logistic Services (BLS), we determine your LTL cost based on your freight classification. Four factors determine this:
- The shipment’s density
- The shipment’s ability to be stored
- The shipment’s unique needs, such as special handling
- The shipment’s liability (whether it is fragile or perishable)
More Versatile Options
Shipping with LTL services offers you more options than other shipping methods. In addition, shipments will be able to reach an extensive range of coverage nationwide by consolidating with other shipments going to the same area.
LTL service options include expedited shipping, liftgate, custom delivery windows, and limited access.
Ease of Shipment
LTL shipping options make it easier for small businesses to expand their service areas. Because they can consolidate shipments with other companies, they don’t have to wait until they grow large enough to fill an entire truckload. In addition, LTL shipments include multiple inventories for various companies making packaging essential to keep inventories separated.
Because LTL fulfillment services consolidate shipments, LTL is more eco-friendly than other transportation options. In addition, these services lower the amount of fuel used, and mileage covered because shipments are being consolidated, eliminating the number of trucks going to the exact locations.
