LTL (Less Than Truckload)


How Can You Save on LTL Freight Carrier Costs?

LTL shipping is used for the transportation of freight that does not require the use of an entire trailer.  LTL is beneficial for companies that are shipping a variety of pallet quantities and products to multiple destinations. 

Maximizing LTL can be complex and relies heavily on the multiple freight/route characteristics. These include: 

  • Dimensions

  • NMFC Classification 

  • Weight

  • Freight Class

  • Lane (Route) 

  • Distance

  • Required Transit 

  • Time 

  • Delivery Requirements

  • And Many More

Only Pay for What You Need. Being able to maximize your LTL load gives you a tremendous advantage when negotiating rates with LTL carriers. PLP can not only help you find the best LTL carriers but can also negotiate the best data-driven pricing possible for your company. Our expert pricing team does this by leveraging proprietary data analytics to get you the lowest cost so you don’t have to.
