Contrary to what other believe, in shipping, there are also a lot of things to consider. There are different ways of shipment and in every shipment, a matchmaking is made. The delivery matches up with which mode of shipment would it work best. Matches are not taken lightly as there are grounds to consider. So the question is, when is truckload freight right to use?
- When the shipment is around 10,000 lbs or more.
- There is only one origin and only one destination as well.
- The shipment is capable of filling the truck container entirely.
The Benefits of Shipping via Truckload Freight
Large shipments prefer this truckload freight over other modes for a lot of reason. The most obvious one would be the benefits it will offer for both the carrier and the shipper. When you have a large shipment that can fill the truck container entirely and have the one origin and one destination, Truckload freight shipping is the perfect one for you. And with that, you would be reaping the following benefits:
- It is less expensive. Because the destination is just one place and the truck container is fully loaded with just one pick-up, there would be no additional fees and you will just have to stick to what the fair rate should be.
- Faster shipment. The shipment will be faster simply because they are not on the route of the hub system. In addition to this, their transit is continuous as they only need to go in one destination. In other shipment modes, they need to transfer the packages from one truck to another which only add up to the time it would take to reaching the final drop-off point.
- Less damage. The damage to the good is limited because you only handle the packages on twice. First is on the pick-up point and the other is at the drop-off point unlike with another shipment where they change truck from one destination to another where they need to handle the packages again and again which ultimately contribute to the damage in the package.
- The pricing is per mile. Per mile, pricing is a lot less expensive than that of the per-pound pricing.
