Secure the Lowest LTL quote

To secure the lowest possible freight quote, there are several key steps you can take:

Provide The Shipping Emporium Accurate Information:

Ensure you provide accurate and detailed information about your shipment. This includes the precise dimensions and weight of the item, the exact pickup and delivery addresses, and the description and value of the item(s) being shipped.  

Package Appropriately:

Packaging your items in a way that maximizes space efficiency can reduce your LTL rates. Bulky or irregularly shaped items may lead to higher rates.    

Flexible Pickup and Delivery Times: If you can offer flexibility in your pickup and delivery times, you may be able to negotiate lower rates. This might be truer for Full Truckloads (compared to LTL carriers). Keep in mind the calendar and any Holidays that may cause more staff to be out of the office, such as Labor Day.

Consider Consolidated Shipping: If possible, combine multiple smaller shipments into one larger one. Freight companies often offer lower rates for larger, consolidated shipments.

Do you have any LTL or TL coming up?

Truckload (TL) and Less Than Truckload (LTL) services both provide businesses with the opportunity to have their goods delivered safely and on-time. TL services are used for large shipments, often full truckloads, while LTL services are more appropriate for smaller shipments that require less space or capacity. In either case, the goods must be packaged securely and safely for travel.

TL services are often used for large shipments that utilize an entire truckload, and the cost is usually calculated based on the amount of cargo being shipped. With TL services, businesses can expect the quickest possible transit times since no other shipments will be loaded onto or unloaded from the truck during transit. This also reduces the risk of damages due to mishandling during the transfer process.

LTL services are typically used for smaller shipments that do not require the capacity of a full truckload. With LTL services, businesses can expect slightly longer transit times since multiple shipments will be loaded onto and unloaded from the same truck during its route. This also means that goods may be handled more than once, so extra care must be taken to ensure the items remain secure during transit. Even with these risks, LTL services are a great option for businesses on a budget since they typically cost less than TL services due to the sharing of capacity among numerous shipments.

No matter which service is chosen, businesses should always make sure that their goods are packaged securely and safely before being shipped.

If you are a business owner or someone who is shipping products, you might be familiar with the terms LTL and TL. But what do they really mean? And do you need either of these services? In this blog post, we will explore the difference between LTL and TL services and help you determine which one is best for your needs.

LTL means “less than truckload.” This type of shipping service is perfect for businesses that need to ship items that are too large for parcel shipping but do not require a full truck. LTL shipping is a cost-effective way of transportation and is best suited for those who are seeking to save costs on their shipping. The shipping rates for LTL are determined by the weight and dimensions of the shipment, and the mileage. LTL shipping is also preferred by businesses that have small-volume shipments because it allows the enterprise to share the costs of transportation.

On the other hand, TL means “truckload” and it is a type of shipping service where an entire truck is dedicated to carrying one shipment. This service is best for those who need to ship large quantities of products that can fill an entire truck. It is also suited for business owners who need to expedite their shipping because the entire truck is used only for their shipment. TL shipping is typically more expensive than LTL because the entire truck is only used for one shipment, regardless of the weight or size.

The primary benefit of LTL is that it allows small businesses to minimize their transportation costs by sharing a trailer with other freight shipments. LTL carriers coordinate to create the most efficient shipping routes, making it a great way to save money on shipping while maintaining a high level of service. LTL shipping companies also use the latest technology to ensure that the shipment is tracked, managed, and delivered on time. They also employ experts with experience in handling complex parcel shipments safely and accurately.

TL, on the other hand, is best suited for shippers who require fast delivery of a full truckload to a single destination. A heavy haul carrier can provide the heavy-duty equipment needed to move large items, such as machinery or construction equipment. TL shippers can enjoy a higher level of security since there are no other shipments carried along with theirs. TL is well-suited for businesses that have a high value of goods they are transporting; exclusive use of a truck provides the most reliable delivery service while mitigating the risks of theft or damage.

So which shipping service is best for you, LTL or TL? The answer depends on your business needs. If you have a small volume shipment, and cost is a significant factor, then LTL shipping is your best choice. If you have a large volume shipment, need expedited delivery, and value security, then TL shipping would be a better choice. By learning the two types of shipping, and what they have to offer, you will have the insight and information needed to select the right service for your business needs. Do you need LTL and TL services? The decision lies in the details and requirements of each customer’s shipment.

YOUR LTL Services

Hello & Warm Regards from, Jane Barnett, The Shipping Emporium. We’d like to review your LTL and TL shipping needs, to see how we can both save your company, and offer you all of the Freight Carriers on the market.

We can help you to choose the most suitable truck- TL, Flatbed, Dry van or LTL service Option for your goods and for your company.  Less Than Truckload (LTL Carriers) are for when you do not need a full truck, and you ship a smaller number of pallets.

Call or Email The Shipping Emporium Today for a fast and Free Freight quote! We handle literally everything for you, including the BOLs and we may be able to save you money.

Consolidated Freight takes up less space on the truck, and in LTL Shipping the less space that a shipment takes up, the lower your freight rate will be!

How will you know if you could save money with a Dedicated truck for a larger shipment OR save money with an LTL Carrier for a shipment that is over-length but if palatalized could go by LTL?

This is what The Shipping Emporium will handle for you. Our goal is to find YOU the best Carriers for your money. It will always be based upon what is shipping and the size of each pallet. That is how we can save you money, along with shopping our carrier network for the best rates.

3) For the space of the truck, when you consolidate your freight then your shipment will be denser. Denser shipments are less expensive to transport. Potentially save money on your LTL shipments with our help at The Shipping Emporium.

When you reach out, we will ask several questions to make sure that the right sized truck is sent and to ensure the best possible Freight Quote. Please be sure to include accurate Dimensions (length x width x height) for each pallet or handling unit.

A short-list of what my company, The Shipping Emporium can do for you:

BOL Creation and changes. Dispatch and scheduling.

Invoice Auditing and extra phone calls or inquiries to you and to the dispatcher if needed.

We can assist when you are sending unusual or haz-mat, including batteries.

Verify delivery appointments.

We sure hope that we can help your company or agency with your next Freight order.

PS Here are some more tips! 

Book early. Heavy freight volumes are expected right after the holidays, so we recommend getting your shipments booked as soon as you can!

Some of our Quotes are now good for 7 days. That means, that the price is subject to change.

What is over-sized LTL? If you have a shipment weight that is 5000 to 10,000 pounds or more, or if your shipments Linear space is more than15-20 linear feet, that is over-sized. It will depend on the commodity being shipped, please let us know your full shipment details.

If you have any questions or need a quote to meet your upcoming LTL or TL needs, please keep us posted, soon as you can!

Here is a Short-list of the services that we can offer your company:

Truckload (TL) Shipping Advantages

The Advantages of FTL (Full Truckload) Shipping

Cost- effective for large shipments- providing savings over shipping several LTL shipment.

What advantages do you offer with FTL Shipping?

Not subject to being surrounded by other shippers freight- which can lower the risk of delays or damage. More direct route for shipments- meaning less stops and fewer handling occasions along the way.

Ships faster than LTL (Less Than Truckload) shipping due to not having to switch trailers and being subject to additional handling. Flexible schedules- trucks typically pick up freight within 24 hours, allowing customers more control over their supply chain.

What advantages do you offer with LTL Shipping from LTL Carriers?

Ability to track shipment in real time with GPS tracking technology- providing customers with greater visibility into their goods enroute. Find out more about The Shipping Emporium or how to

Additional services such as liftgates or inside delivery can be provided upon request, usually only with the LTL Carriers. FTL Vans are not going to have a Lift gate, but a Box truck or 26 foot truck may a great choice for those seeking extra convenience or special needs.

FTL has less paperwork- since only one customer is being shipped at a time, there typically isn’t as much paperwork involved with FTL shipments compared to LTL shipping.
