PARTIAL LTL SHIPMENTS
Individual and small to medium sized companies face the predicament of having to arrange shipments that will allow them to be profitable and still get their freight delivered in a timely manner. To do so, shippers typically spend hours, if not days searching for carriers that will best suit their needs, as well as their budgets. Discount Freight Quotes, through its large network of LTL Freight carriers is able to utilize our deeply discounted rates to pick up freight from multiple customers via numerous carriers.
Our freight carriers then transport these items to their local terminals, and consolidate freight that is traveling in the same general direction. These smaller LTL shipments are then loaded onto trucks that will deliver to their destination terminals. They are then dispatched for delivery to their individual shipment destinations. Discount Freight Quotes has a large database with access to 100+ different LTL freight companies and always places you with the safest most cost effective and time sensitive way to handle your freight.
LESS-THAN-TRUCKLOAD OR LTL GUIDLINES
⇁ LTL is normally 1 pallet up to 8 pallets or 200lbs to 8,000lbs
⇁ All items must be packaged appropriately by being boxed, crated or on a pallet in order for the freight to be accepted by the carrier.
⇁ You will be required to load and unload your freight. The driver may assist in loading and unloading but is not required to do so.
⇁ Heavy items may require a lift gate service if there is no forklift or loading dock available, which result in an additional charge.
⇁ Deliveries are done in the morning as the drivers come into work they unload the trailers with the freight on them (normally between 9am-12 noon) Pickups are done after the trailer is empty which is normally done between the hours of 12 noon to 5pm.
⇁ Transit times are estimated days of delivery unless you have purchased a guarantee delivery (guaranteed by a specific day)
⇁ To figure out the pounds per cubic foot of your freight, the formula is: Length x Width x Height and Divided by 1728 equals the square footage of the item.
