Freight rate

Saving on Freight is Not Always Just About the Rate

Often, shipping managers are quick to pick the lowest priced carrier for an LTL shipment. While price is certainly a big factor, there are some other things that should be considered in addition to price. Factors such as transit time, carrier safety records, and on-time performance are key elements in making sure that you pick the right carrier for a given shipment. Frequency with which shipments are damaged by each carrier should also be given priority in the decision making process.
