Preparation and Packing your LTL Freight
Freight shipping via LTL is vulnerable as it is handled repeatedly than any other type of carrier. It is best to arrange your commercial shipment into one palletized package when you’re moving it via freight. Cutting down the total number of packages also brings down the total handling or loading time, subsequently leading to maximum safety while shipping as freight.
When you’re transporting machines or machine-parts such as that of an automobile, it is recommended to crate the shipment. We recommend so because certain LTL carriers refuse pickup when motor parts aren’t secured in a crate. Moreover, all goods must be packed carefully to avoid the item slipping and popping out of the sides of the pallet. You can also use a cling film for wrapping the shipment so that it is fixed firmly to the pallet.
