Volume LTL?

November 19, 2021

For Dry Vans (including LTL Carriers)

if your shipment is much larger than 6 pallets please call The Shipping Emporium to see if you need a Full Truckload service. Our FTL rates are based on dedicated service and are more cost-effective at time for heavy

or full loads of pallet shipping.

How big does my shipment need to be to best reduce cost?

When you have a shipment that weighs more than 4900 pounds or has more than 6 pallets. we can make sure that the truck ordered for you is not only the most suitable, but also the lowest possible cost!

How about Lift -gates?

Most lift gates on trucks can fit freight that is about 2500 or less per pallet, with the range

Being anywhere from 1500 pounds at most to 3500 at most depends on the truck and the carrier.

If the dimensions are 96 x 48 or less. The weight limit is 2500 pounds per pallet

(Usually and may differ some by trucking company used). Lift gates on our Carriers vans usually

Can hold 96  x 48 inches, some less.

Less than Truckload (LTL) shipments are usually 1 to 6 pallets (one to six) and can weigh usually about

100 to 5000 pounds.

LTL Carriers usually define LTL freight guidelines for a single shipment to be between 100

And 10000 pounds. Although we have some LTL carriers that take only up to 7,000 pounds and

One that will take LTL up to 15,000. Let us know more about your shipment, and it’s size so that we can find the truck, and the best fit for you and your budget! For a flat bed truck the usual range for lift is between 1000 to 3000 pounds.

Freight transportation is the process of transporting commodities or commercial goods. Usually by Less than Truckload (LTL), Full truckload or even Intermodal/ Rail.

Carefully package and prepare your pallet shipping for your LTL carriers and for your Truckload carriers as well. Let us know if your shipment requires special handling or Equipment (Perishables, fragile, or Haz-mat).

If you need any special services at all, please let us know when asking for a quote, so that you will have this on your estimate. For example, Appointments, LIFT-GATES, Haz-mat, or Inside Delivery, or Limited Access for Pick up or Delivery. All services needed for pick up and Delivery need to be requested on your quote or they could be added to your bill if needed when truck comes.

TL (Truckload) and LTL (Less Than Truckload) shipping are both very unique as each customers. Call us at 703-304-8170 or email customerservice@shippingemp.com.

Do you need a Lift Gate for your LTL?

September 29, 2021

Hello and Warm Regards from Jane Barnett the Shipping Emporium.

Often our Customers are interested in a Lift-Gate Service on truck. In
some cases, you may know ahead of time that this will be needed but in
sometimes not. Please Keep in Mind that our Quotes will be based on your
information provided, and services such as Lift-gate and Appointments at
the Delivery need to be considered for your Shipping Location (Business
or Government Location) and also your Delivery Location (Business or
Government Location or School). Checking on the locations to make sure
that they have a Loading dock or a Forklift (or even a pallet jack for
shipments that are not too heavy) can help save you both time, money and
hassle. Some of our Carriers have Trucks with and without a Lift – gate
on truck, so it is helpful to know ahead of time what you will need. For
us, making sure that a Lift gate is available before you ship is
sometimes easier than just waiting to see if the truck has one
available.

As far as your shipments weight, there are weight limits for Lift gates
varying from 2500 pound capacity per pallet to 5000 pounds in some rare
cases. (and also length limits up to 96 inches usually) . When we
provide you a Quote based on your shipments weight and dimensions
(length x width x height) that is what we are looking for— is the most
exact information that you can provide about your shipment’s size and
also your needs.

LTL shipping is usually picked up by an LTL carrier and the services are
for at least 100 pounds to 10,000 pounds at the most, or with some
exceptions we have LTL Carriers up to 15000 pounds. (All depends on your
pallets size in lx w x ht and number of pallets also). We can help you
to reduce your costs by finding (with our help) the carriers that are
the lowest for your pickup and your destination, your shipments size and
for the Accessorial needed.

Truckloads are usually Dedicated trucks and can be full up to 52 linear
feet or up to 42,000 pounds And are handled on Dry Vans and Flat Bed
Trucks both.

Any questions or quotes needed please contact us any time! Your business
is appreciated.

Shipping Over Sized Items?

Your company is doing business with Agencies or Universities—in the Virginia’s Procurement System. We are a small (SWAM, Micro, and DBE Certified Firm) and we are also very specialized at making deliveries to – Universities, Govt Agencies, Military Bases and Prisons.

Find out more about how to streamline your Freight Shipping Process with us!

Purchasing oversized items, like furniture or equipment online is becoming more common as well. However, many people still experience difficulties when it comes to shipping oversized items.

In our current market, LTL freight is now often delayed because of our carriers returning to a pre-pandemic normal. And over-sized shipments often take an extra day or so for delivery. Please Check with The Shipping Emporium to see if we have the right service for you and also at the right price!

Shipping oversized items via LTL   Freight Carriers

One of the best possible alternatives for large pieces transportation is LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping. LTL shipping does not require the full truck capacity, and you can pay only for space you use. LTL shipping providers, like GoShip.com, offer user-friendly services for safe and convenient delivery of large items. Many of these services are based on the online marketplaces, so you can arrange delivery 24/7 without extra needed communication. To approximately understand the cost of a certain shipment, you can get a Quote from us based on the size and dimensions of the object.

Often large shipments cannot be delivered by standard parcel services and need a complex packing. To deliver your items safely, shipping services offer palletizing, wrapping, cushioning, or crating. There are also other additional services, such as lift gates, to make the shipping as comfortable as possible for you.

Benefits of LTL

If safety and convenience are important for you, LTL shipping is the soundest solution for your needs. You don’t have to worry about burdensome operations or communication with dozens of people. Everything is done online within few clicks. Online shipping services not only let you easily and safely move items but also offer reasonable pricing.

It is always challenging to arrange such complicated things when shipping all by yourself. It can turn out to be more expensive and stressful delivery, than when using a trusted LTL shipping provider. Trusted shipping services, like The Shipping Emporium have an extensive network of carriers to meet all the needed options to meet your expectations.

Overlength means that the length of the freight shipment exceeds a certain limit the carrier designates. Commodities that tend to have overlength fees assessed include lumber, pipes, and steel rods. This is sometimes referred to as extreme length.

What Is Oversize Freight? When a freight load exceeds defined limitations, it is referred to as oversize freight, oversize load, or heavy haul. Shipping oversize freight requires specialized logistics since special equipment and careful pre-planning are needed because oversize freight exceeds design clearances

LTL Shipping —What are LTL freight size limitations? Freight that is wider than 8ft 6 inches or taller than 13 ft 6 inches is typically considered oversized freight. Shipments.

How are LTL rates Calculated?

July 2021

Greetings From The Shipping Emporium! This is Jane Barnett and I would like to speak with you about your company and your Freight (LTL and TL) needs for 2021.    How are your LTL Rates Calculated? And what is the best way to get the most accurate and lowest rate?  The way that we suggest is to have as much information and Detail as possible about the Addresses, Names of Business or Agency or Government Location Delivering to. And the Best Phone Number at both your Shipper and Receiving Locations as well.   The number of Pallets or Crates (as you will have them packaged and ready for pick up on Day of Shipping), listed out with the weight and dimensions (Length x width x height) for each one when sending us your quote ensures an accurate quote.

And of course, a good description of what is shipping and any special requirements or pick up hours. (Special requirements include a Lift gate if you or your shipper do not have a Lift-gate of your own or a Loading or Receiving dock, but if your pallets or crates are over about 6 feet please make sure that your Shipper and Receiving party will have their own forklifts and or Loading docks. (Because of your shipment’s over-length).   After an incredibly stressful year, many businesses are re-gearing with new Carriers and Brokers and at the same time trying to reduce cost or to have better service. The Shipping Emporium is here for YOU!     Should you have any other specific questions, please reach me by phone or email us    703-304-8170.  T Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
