|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.
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.
