Article at Manufacturing.net has tips on saving money on your LTL shipping.
Unlike truckload shipments which are typically rated at on a flat or per mile rate based purely on distance, LTL shipments take into consideration many different facets. In addition to distance—weight, NMFC classification, accessorial charges, and negotiated discounts and FAK structures all contribute to how you are billed. This combination of factors can sometimes make it difficult for shippers to verify freight bill charges.
This is where AMTR can save you big. We are experts in determining the validity of LTL freight charges and can recover overcharges you have inadvertently paid due to classification, discount, weight, and FAK errors.
