Less than truckload LTL company trucking firms are cost effective for small businesses when employing a 3PL or third party logistics company like Paige Logistics because transportation costs are shared with other enterprises.

What is LTL vs LCL?

  1. LCL means “less than a container load”

     2. LTL means “less than a truck load” 

Is guaranteed LTL shipping of the past?

A failed almost assured shipment may not be refunded (a flat tire can delay a load’s delivery).

COVID 19 has made open and closed enterprises vulnerable, thus carriers must halt some options.

Supply chain specialists, especially LTL shipping businesses, without industry experience will struggle to guarantee shipments and provide devoted services.

Logistics companies have temporarily limited guaranteed shipment services and reimbursements.

Most shipping businesses outsource LTL transport services; to get your shipment from A to B, numerous companies have closed.

This limits LTL shipping firms’ ability to give nearly guaranteed service.

Why is FTL & LTL freight Shipment's tracking delayed?

Many LTL companies outsource their administrative work to developing nations.
This is to provide competitive pricing including shipping rates to their customers. The invoicing functions affect the tracking information.

Due to the lockdown, developing countries do not have the technological means in order to complete work online.
With this disruption, the shipping tracking information has resulted as a delay.
Shipping companies are now innovating ways to complete this function about their outsourced business hurdles.

Surprising Costs For Undelivered LTL & FTL Freight

LCL and LTL providers have been given a cumbersome process to follow in order to handle freight that cannot be delivered as a result of businesses being temporarily shuttered as a result of the effects of COVID 19. Because of this, shipping companies have established some guidelines for the handling of freight that cannot be delivered.

Because of COVID, shipments that have remained in storage for a longer period of time may be subject to additional fees for storage.

Shipping corporations have been forced by certain circumstances to make the calculated decision to return shipments to their senders, and they have then charged the sender for the cost of the return!

Because of this, you will be responsible for paying for freight twice, even if it was never sold.

SHIPPERS LTL FTL LEGAL RISKS

All shippers are exposed to a number of legal risks as a result of the weighty responsibilities involved in product shipment. Even if your customer selects the FTL or LTL carrier, the following details list off what to expect. 

1. Regardless of whether an LTL or FTL carrier is selected, the shipper is required by law to adequately pack the freight to ensure its safety.

If the shipment is appointed to a common carrier, the cargo must be transferable by a standard forklift weighing up to 2500 pounds and must be packaged to withstand the normal wear and tear that the hub-and-spoke system of the common carrier will inflict on the freight.

This typically necessitates that the freight be shrink-wrapped, strapped to a pallet, and, if possible, equipped with corner protectors. Even better, add cardboard sheets to all sides beneath the shrink wrap to provide additional protection for the shipment. The most effective method is to crate the freight.

Loose freight can cause damage to the truck or other freight, and shippers can be held liable for this as well as any safety accidents that occur as a result of or in the vicinity of such improperly packaged freight.

2, The shipper is legally liable for all the details found in the Bill of Lading. Critical to include are the correct description, weight, NMFC (national motor freight classification) number, Class, and subclass derived therefrom.

If a truck unintentionally goes overweight because your freight was listed at 1,000 pounds when it was actually 2,000 pounds, and then is involved in a collision with fatalities, you can expect a large lawsuit against your company, and possibly even against the shipper on an individual level.

3. For collect or “3rd party pay” BOLs, unless you have Section 7 in your BOLs and have the trucker sign it, if another party is paying the freight bill (via collect or third party billing) but fails to pay, the bills will be returned to the legal shipper.

Courts have determined that the shipper is responsible for paying them, including the full charges without application of the LTL tariff discount. This is especially true for common carrier shipping – you tendered the freight, and the LTL carrier accepted based on their Tariff, which you implicitly agreed to by tendering the freight to them (even if your customer chose the carrier – it makes no difference!).

This “chargeback” situation can occur if the recipient fails to pay, if the broker, third-party distributor, or seller of the goods (for drop shipments) goes out of business, or if the paying party ceases operations.

As the “legal shipper,” your company will eventually receive the bills. This can be incredibly expensive and even career-ending for shipping and traffic managers and CFOs.

4. The responsibility of the shipper to deliver the freight to the appropriate carrier listed on the BOL.  Penalties can happen if the wrong carrier is matched with the wrong freight. The cargo may be held until past due and disputed invoices are at much higher rates paid to the new carrier.

In addition, you may owe a “Truck Dispatched Not Loaded” fee to the LTL carrier that originally booked the FTL shipment.

5. The shipper is legally accountable for the correct labeling and documentation of all hazardous shipments. On the Bill of Lading, the shipper must include the correct UN number, description, emergency contact numbers and hazmat class.

The shipper must provide the driver with a valid Bill of Lading and Material Safety Data Sheet. It is also advisable to attach copies of this Safety Sheet to each shipping pallet.

Failure to take any of these precautions exposes the company and shipping support staff to possible criminal negligence charges and opens the floodgates of liability in the event of a severe accident involving improperly marked or weighed cargo.

There may be serious legal and financial repercussions. Their is a 9 million dollar settlement that nearly bankrupted a shipper.

6. It is the legal responsibility of shippers to load trailers correctly and safely.

Loading the items haphazardly could potentially cause damage to trucks, other freight, people unloading, as well as collateral damage to people or property in the event of an accident.

In addition, shippers must ensure that their employees do not load any illegal goods onto a trailer.

These are some of the most important responsibilities in freight shipping, and they are the responsibility of your logistics staff.

Training them well and requiring them to read logistics will make them more valuable and resourceful, as well as aware of how one can protect your business from unwarranted liability and the dire consequences of lawsuits.
