Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between a FTL shipment and a LTL shipment?
A Full Truckload (FTL) shipment is also known as a "dedicated" truckload shipment and the freight will take up the space or weight limit of the entire trailer. It will usually be contracted to load a single shipment for a customer and no other shipments will be put on the trailer. A Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipment is the movement of a customer's shipment that does NOT take up an entire trailer, generally consists of 1 to 5 pallets, weighs less than 10,000 lbs, and the LTL carrier will mix freight from several different customers on the trailer. Exceptions do apply, but these are the general guidelines
- What all is involved when moving an International Shipment?The movement of an International Shipment can be quite confusing due to the variables involved and the different types of companies involved that handle a portion of the shipment. Examples of the different variables include: Air or Ocean shipment, Door to Door, Door to Airport/Ocean Port or Airport/Ocean Port to Airport/Ocean Port. Examples of different company types include: Domestic and International Freight Forwarder, Air/Ocean Carriers, Drayage Company, Cartage Company and Customs Brokers.
- How many times is a (FTL) or (LTL) shipment handled?A Full Truckload (FTL) shipment is generally handled only 1 time. The shipper loads the freight on the truck and puts a seal on it, the truck travels straight to its destination, and the consignee at destination will break seal and unload the truck. There is very little chance for damage to the freight. A Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipment will be handled many times depending on how far the shipment is traveling throughout the carrier's network and will be loaded "high and tight" with many other customers' shipments, between each of the carrier locations. There is a far greater chance for damage to a shipment when moving it by LTL, because of the number of times it is handled, compared to a truckload movement.
- What are the variables involved with the pricing of an LTL shipment?When moving an LTL shipment, you are renting space on a trailer and your shipment will loaded on that trailer with many other shipments moving towards your destination. The variables that determine the price of your LTL shipment include: distance the shipment is traveling, number of pallets, dimensions of the pallets, weight of the pallets, classification of the freight and if any additional services are needed during the move, such as; lift gate pickup or delivery, limited access pickup or delivery, and residential pickup or delivery. There are additional variables, but these are the most common.
What does it mean when an LTL shipment is Re-Classed?
When an LTL shipment is moved, the document that the shipment is moved on is called the Bill of Lading (BOL). On this BOL, along with information such as; origin address, destination address and who the carrier is etc, the NMFC class number, the description of the freight and the total weight of the shipment is also listed. The class of freight describes what the commodity is being shipped and it must match the description listed. If they don't match the shipment will get re-classed and the price will be adjusted. If it is a dimensional item being shipped and the weight is incorrect or the dimensions of the pallet is incorrect, the shipment will be re-classed and the price adjusted. Generally ALL LTL shipments will be re-weighed when it arrives back at the carrier's origin terminal, before being moved on to its final destination. If the weight is off by 25 LBS or more, the price for the shipment will be adjusted to include the additional weight.
Why do Re-Classes and Re-Weighs occur on LTL shipments?
For economic reasons, all LTL carries have it down to a science of how many shipments they can legally fit on their trucks, based off of class type and weight of each shipment. LTL carriers determine their shipping charges based on the total shipment weight (including the packaging materials, i.e. boxes, pallets, etc.) and the freight class /NMFC of the items being shipped, as determined by the NMFTA (National Motor Freight Traffic Association). If you select the wrong freight class and/or weight when quoting and schedule your shipment based upon incorrect information, you will have been quoted incorrectly. This will result in a change in shipping charge that you are responsible for paying.
How is pricing calculated on Air Shipments?
Obviously pricing for an air shipment will depend on many things such as; if it's a domestic or international shipment, the distance it is traveling and what type of service requested, but when it comes to moving air shipments, the dimensions and weight of each box/pallet is very important as well. The air carriers will measure and weigh EVERY piece that is being put on the plane to determine the exact dimensions and weight and adjust the pricing accordingly. Air Carriers base their pricing on dimensional weight or actual weight, usually in Kilos, whichever is greater.
How is pricing calculated for Ocean Shipments?
Just like an air shipment, pricing for an ocean shipment will depend on the distance the shipment is traveling and type of service requested, but an ocean shipment price is also calculated in a couple of different ways. If you are moving a Full Container Load (FCL), the ocean carriers will price the shipment based on you renting the whole container and as long as you don't exceed their max weight for that type of container, then you are ok. If you are moving a Less Than Container (LCL) load, then they will price the shipment based off how much space your shipment will take up in the container. LCL pricing is based off CBM's (Cubic Meters) and just like an air shipment, an LTL shipment will be re-measured and re-weighed EVERY time before it is loaded into a container.
