FAQ’s About Trucking Services
When should I choose LTL service over FTL?
LTL (less than a truckload) is a consolidation of multiple companies goods to fill a trailer. This service is a cost-effective way to transport small and medium-sized shipments, which would not account for a full truckload on their own. However, if shipping a commodity that requires special handling, is time-critical, or is of high-value, GLC recommends a dedicated truck regardless of the load’s size.
How is my freight class determined?
The National Motor Freight Traffic Association created the National Motor Freight Classification® (NMFC®) standard to establish a commodity’s transportability. The NMFC® has 18 classes, ranging from 50-500, and it classifies items based on four characteristics: Density, Stowability, Handling, and Liability. Proper classification of your goods is crucial as the lower the classification, the lower the rate. GLC will confirm your goods’ correct class and ensure that it placed correctly on the bill of lading for each shipment.
What does free time with a live load mean?
Free time refers to the amount of time the trucker will wait for the trailer or container to be loaded. After the free time has expired, an hourly detention rate will apply.
