UPS Weight Limits and When To Consider LTL Freight
Add LTL Freight to Your Shipping Toolkit
You might think your business isn't large enough to need freight shipping. After all, what you ship fits nicely in a cardboard box. But did you know you may be able to save money by shipping packages in bulk via less-than-truckload (LTL) freight? It's true.
Consider LTL freight for large volume or oversized parcel shipments
LTL freight has a different way of calculating shipping prices. And because you share cargo space with other shippers, you pay only for the space you use. That's another thing — you don't have to research for reputable carriers because we've vetted them already.
What if your shipment is oversized or oddly shaped and doesn't fit nicely in a cardboard box? That's an even better reason to consider LTL freight services for your business. When you have an out-of-the-ordinary shipment, typical size limits for parcel shipping could see you paying more and having fewer options than anticipated. Using LTL shipping in these instances is a great way to keep your goods on the move at a price that adds value to your budget.
