Truckload FTL Carriers: Finding the Best Rates, Companies, and Drivers

Figuring out if you have an FTL shipment is easy. If your shipment is big enough to fill all the space in the truck and will be transported by itself, it’s FTL. Figuring the cost is a different animal.

The maximum weight that an FTL shipment can be depends on a few factors, but is typically around 45,000 pounds. The gross weight limit is 80,000 pounds, which refers to the total weight of the truck with loaded cargo. That includes the cab, cargo, and even the diesel which can add an additional thousand pounds of weight with a full tank. When you partner with us our professional freight brokers handle these logistical concerns to ensure your delivery arrives on time and intact. If your shipment exceeds the 80,000 pound weight limit we will find a heavy-haul shipping option suitable for your cargo.

Rates usually differ by location and destination. If the driver has to deadhead back, the rate would be higher. Another cost is additional services like tailgating or driver unloading. These are added to the rate per mile. Additionally, a stop-off charge is incurred whenever the driver stops. Out-of-route costs are also charged. These services are quoted in advance to provide an accurate quote. Our professional FTL freight brokers are experts at coordinating shipping schedules between carriers to avoid as many deadhead loads as possible to save you money.

FTL transit times are typically faster than LTL because there are no stops. The price per pound is significantly less. Going with the option of LTL shipping has a statistically higher chance of a claim because of increased handling (more trips across a dock).   DDL is highly selective in its choice of shipping partners and works only with the most trusted and reliable freight companies.

FTL Shipping Brokers: The Importance of an Expert Logistics Consultant

A solid FTL freight broker like Direct Drive Logistics can help you overcome FTL shipping challenges. Sometimes there is not enough available equipment. Costs can fluctuate. The economy is only improving slowly. Many companies are shipping more goods, but FTL carriers have not been able to replace drivers and equipment quickly enough which were lost during the economic downturn.

Direct Drive Logistics has developed a large network of qualified FTL shipping companies that are stable, experienced, and responsible.

Lower cost is an excellent benefit provided by our experienced freight management specialists. We purchase a tremendous amount of shipping, passing along volume price discounts to you. No individual client could approach these savings. Not only is this a dollar benefit, but it is also a persuasive element. When a large-scale broker like Direct Drive Logistics goes to bat for you, you’ll be treated as a much larger shipper than you are. This results in better coordination, a higher priority for your shipment and faster response to any difficult challenges.
