There is no better way to take full control over your shipping operations than by implementing a less than truckload (LTL) freight management strategy. When businesses need to send out smaller shipments immediately, there is no sense in paying for a full trailer. While carriers are more than willing to haul half-empty trailers (for the price of a full trailer), this leaves shippers on the hook for paying for the empty space. With LTL freight management, shippers can coordinate with carriers to haul their smaller shipments at a reduced price.
Coordination breeds complexity
While LTL shipments save money, the complexity of setting them can become frustrating, and coordinating them takes some time and effort on part of shipping teams. Thankfully, the right transportation software can drastically reduce the work that goes into LTL shipping and eliminate the frustrations that go along with it.
Using the right software
Even if you have a TMS that can handle the coordination of these shipments, there is still more to LTL shipping than the initial coordination of carriers with shipments. There is also a substantial amount of data analysis that can help further drive down costs and eliminate inefficiencies in your operations.
Our team at King Solutions recognized this problem and was one of leading factors we took into consideration when creating the MyGameChanger® platform.
