Many businesses depend on freight services providers to transport items across the country or around the world. Two main freight shipping categories are truckload (TL) and less-than-truckload (LTL) services, industry terms used to describe the amount of space a shipped item will take up on a truck. When Items take up the entire available space on a truck, the shipment is considered TL or full truckload (FTL); LTL freight consists of items from various shippers combined for transport into a single truck. Freight brokers — individuals or companies who will connect shippers and freight carriers — may also work with businesses to handle their shipping requirements. The costs of freight services and freight shipping rates will vary depending on the supplier and the shipment category. ERA consultants with freight management expertise help clients evaluate their freight expenditures to uncover additional savings opportunities in this cost category.
