FTL Freight Management Pros Save You Time And Money

Connecting Shippers with Less-Than-Truckload Carriers

How to Calculate LTL Freight Class

The NMFTA establishes industry standard LTL freight classes to make estimating shipping costs easier.

Shippers often have enough volume to warrant FTL rates, but various portions of the load need delivery to different destinations. In such cases, freight management specialists at Direct Drive Logistics can help you determine what your best option is, perhaps shipping freight directly to a break-bulk facility of an LTL carrier. Our freight shipping experts will help you find the most efficient and affordable path to your freights ultimate destination. In some cases each portion of the shipment could be delivered by an FTL carrier (a “line haul carrier”), parceling out the shipment in LTL lots to the final destinations.

You can save a lot of money doing things this way. In many cases your freight will actually travel fewer miles on the FTL carrier. Fuel surcharge costs will be lower. The FTL carrier travels the distance to the break-bulk facility for a single carrier's price, using only the fuel required for the trip. You’ll avoid having several LTL carriers -- each at the carrier's price -- each using the same route and fuel.

This is a cost effective and efficient method to secure the most benefits from lower-cost FTL pricing and convenient LTL efficiency. Your true concerns are reliability, cost, and expediency. Let the freight management professionals from Direct Drive Logistics work out all the details for you.

Determining the LTL Freight Class Code

Calculating how to classify different kinds of LTL freight largely determines the shipping costs. Eighteen LTL freight classes are shown on a scale from 50 to 500. The highest codes (maxing out at 500) mean, in general, the lowest density and highest freight costs. The lowest codes represent the lowest costs for shipping tariffs.

Getting the LTL freight class correct is crucial to eliminating wasteful costs of either overpaying for shipping or racking up fines from trying to pay a cheaper rate than you qualify for.

The Difference Between LTL vs Volume LTL

Surprisingly, the difference between LTL and Volume LTL is not weight. It’s the amount of space your shipment takes up on the truck. This will determine your cost. The freight management experts at Direct Drive Logistics can help you work out the details to keep your shipping costs to a minimum. The last thing you want is to receive a quote for one amount and then be told it will be more. With assistance from our freight management specialists at Direct Drive Logistics, it won’t happen.

LTL Truck Load Brokers for Nationwide Freight

Direct Drive Logistics coordinates owner operators across the US to ship your cargo quickly and affordably.

Here are some details to consider:

  • If you have more than six pallets with dimensions of L48xW40xH96, your shipment will probably qualify for volume rates. 
  • Regardless of pallet size, if your shipment is greater than more than six hundred cubic feet, it should go volume. You should be able to figure the cubic feet by taking the number of pallets multiplied by their length x width x height, all divided by 1728. Be sure to double check your calculation.
  • As with every freight shipment, our logistics consultants at Direct Drive Logistics will personally track your shipment through to final deliveries by LTL shippers.
