HANDLING AND PREPARATION FOR LTL SHIPPING
LTL freight is especially subject to damage because it is handled and transferred repeatedly. If you're sending commercial goods as LTL freight, be careful in planning and organizing the shipment by consolidating to one large, palletized shipment to decrease the number of packages and handling time required at each step.
Machinery, auto parts, and boat instruments should be crated. Some LTL freight carriers will not pick up uncrated transmission or motors. If you ship odd-sized or odd-shaped items, you must not allow them to extend over the pallet's sides. With shrink wrap, you can secure the items firmly and safely.
