There is an increase of security when using LTL. LTL shipments are packaged onto pallets before shipments. These pallets help keep the packages more secure than orders that use smaller handling units. Using LTL gives additional service options. If you prefer to use inside pickup then that is available to you, as well as, other features. Tracking packages also gives a sense of security. LTL also allows packages to be tracked via shipment reference number, PRO number, bill of lading number, PO number, pick up date range, etc. Lastly, LTL is more cost effective than other alternatives. When using LTL you pay only for the portion of the trailer used. The rest of the trailer is covered by the other “tenants.” All that said, LTL can be optimized even further.
