When you have inventory that needs to get from one location to another, you have to be realistic about how you’re going to get it there. At Royal Transportation Services, we’re here to show you how you can save money with partial truckload services. If you don’t have enough to fill an entire truckload (FTL), there are less-than-truckload (LTL) options that can save you money while offering you the enhanced supply chain services that you require.
When should Partial Truckload be chosen?
Benefits of Partial Truckload Shipping
You can enjoy countless benefits of partial truckload shipping services. One of the first is that you can send out your inventory to anywhere that it needs to go, regardless of whether you can fill the truck on your own or not. Trucking is considerably more affordable than air freight, so you will save money. This can have a dramatic effect on the bottom line – and you can pass those savings on to your customers, too.
Partial truckload shipping also allows you to have your freight stay on the same truck, unlike what sometimes happens with LTL. Your freight is loaded and unloaded a single time. This reduces the handling and provides faster transit times.
There’s often no freight class with partial loads, either. This can save you time and ensure that you’re able to ship what you need without fear of spending a fortune.
Plus, with your freight not changing trucks as frequently, there’s less of an opportunity for damages. This will save you money and ensure that your customers are happy when they receive their shipments from you.
Particularly when you are looking to expand your operations, your shipping choices have to be weighed carefully. We’ll show you how a partial truckload can provide you with the means to be more successful.
