Introducing Our NEW LTL Freight Shipping Option
Traffic Safety Direct is now offering our customers the convenience of having online orders delivered by truck! We recently introduced a less than truckload (LTL) heavy-freight shipping option on our website. This will allow you to purchase large products – which previously could only be picked up at our site – and ship them via LTL freight, as well as to combine multiple orders into a single, convenient delivery.
Why Choose LTL as Your Freight Shipping Method?
With LTL freight, the truckload is made up of several smaller shipments that, all together, fill an entire truckload. Because your shipment is not using the entire available truck space, you only have to pay for the weight of your freight and the space you are using in the trailer. This allows companies who may not order enough product to fill a trailer the ability to ship products at a significantly lower cost than that of a normal full truckload shipment.
LTL shipping provides smaller businesses with all the benefits of a professional shipping services – without having to pay a high cost for space they don’t need. Additional advantages of LTL shipping include:
- State-of-the-art tracking systems, which enable our LTL shipper to provide you with real-time tracking information so you will know exactly where your shipment is at any time. This also helps ensure that deliveries arrive as close to on schedule as possible.
- LTL freight is typically loaded onto pallets or into crates. This protects shipments from damage during loading and transit, and can help minimize the chances of orders getting lost.
- LTL freight shipping is a “greener” alternative that supports the environment. The process results in fewer trucks carrying full loads, rather than more trucks carrying less than their capacity. This significantly reduces emissions – and your company’s carbon footprint – because it lessens the number of trucks needed to get goods to their destinations.
- Companies can combine more than one product on a single order. This is more economical than parcel shipping since it requires less handling than multiple smaller packages of the same weight and space.
