Less-than-truckload (LTL) is often our go-to for smaller shipments. It is more structured and often more cost-effective than simply shipping your freight as a partial load, not to mention that it’s much easier to arrange.

Today, we will talk about choosing LTL carriers and minimizing the risk of potential issues.
