How Can LTL Help Small Businesses?

by Michael Kotendzhi | Logistics

The transportation cost for small companies in British Columbia is often at a higher rate than what a big corporation can acquire considering the volumes dedicated regularly.  Most local-owned or fresh-established businesses face the challenge when they need to replenish the stocks more frequently.

This issue is considerably the breaking point that eventually puts the locally owned or fresh-established businesses out of the industry. With the overall cost being staggering high hence cannot offer competitive pricing to the public.  

However, load consolidation is ultimately the solution to this challenge.

What you need a logistics partner that has a wide variety of customers in a concentrated area like Vancouver, where they can combine the load with others to deliver. The logistics company is condensing enough loads to make one trip, making an LTL (Less-Truck-Load) shipment to lower the overall cost of a run on the transportation. Often provided by the different fleet, however, if you have an amazing logistics partner, this is the perfect solution.
