Do You Need To Ship To Florida

Shipping in Florida can be challenging for truckload shippers depending on the time of the year. Florida is a seasonal agricultural shipping state that affects truckload and rail shipping rates. LTL rates are competitive throughout the state of Florida due to the abundance of freight and competition from carriers. There are at least 17 different LTL carriers in the state.

What is LTL shipping?

LTL shipping is an acronym for less than truckload. LTL shipping is by far the most prevalent type of outbound shipping in Florida. LTL allows carriers to pool your shipment with similar shipments heading in the same direction and saves you money all the while receiving great service. LTL pricing is affected by weight, freight class, dimensions and the distance traveled. Commodities that ship in Florida run the gamut and include aerospace or pharmaceutical companies that are big industries within Florida.

We can design a plan for your Florida freight shipping needs that meet your shipping budget and won’t cut corners on service. Our LTL carriers maintain terminals in most major cities in Florida that offer consistent reliable service. The rule of thumb is if you have less than 5000 pounds then it is best to use LTL standard services. If your shipment is more than 5000 pounds you may qualify for a spot quote or volume discount. Florida freight shipping whether LTL or truckload is efficient seeing as most destinations are only 1-2 days away from Florida’s busiest port located in Miami.

Is Flatbed Service Only For Truckload?

The short answer is no, but flatbed truck service is almost always shipped as a full truckload. Flatbed freight is typically very heavy or bulky which usually takes up the trucks capacity in weight or space. Typically the max weight for a flatbed is 48000 pounds, but as innovations in trailers become more cost-effective carriers are slowly upgrading to lighter and longer trailers. This is allowing flatbeds to haul more weight with more available space. Shipping LTL on flatbeds is not uncommon as many items are too bulky to ship in enclosed trailers. Some commodities that are shipped on flatbeds include forklifts, aircraft engines, and construction equipment.
