Selecting a transport option that best suits your company’s shipping needs can be difficult. Whether your Houston, TX area business is just getting started or is already heavily established, variable shipping needs arise at every level. Instead of overpaying for a full truckload and wasting valuable cargo space, Bay and Bay Transportation’s trucking professionals offer less than truckload shipping options to ensure you’re getting the best price possible for all the shipping you need.
Variable shipping needs may come in the form of regular ‘irregularities’ or a one-time small shipment that needs to get on the road quickly and efficiently. Regardless of the frequency, less than truckload options are flexible enough that your needs can be met at a reasonable price point every time.
Less than truckload shipping is cost effective as you’re only paying for the space and labor you’re actually using instead of overpaying for an entire truckload. Smaller shipments and easier labor leads to lower costs for you, the business owner, while encouraging discounts from trucking professionals who are already incentivized to effectively utilize the space in their cargo hauling vehicles.
You can also expect your less than truckload shipments to have faster than usual delivery times. Lighter trucks jump through less hoops in transit as weight limits are less of an imposing factor. Plus, when loading and unloading is a much quicker affair, that means you get your shipment as fast as possible. These factors, together along with not having to wait for your parcels to arrive in multiple shipments, mean less than truckload hauls can be highly efficient modes of transport.
As an added bonus, utilizing less than truckload shipments is better for the environment. That lower weight means the trip requires less fuel and spends less time on the road overall. If your business is interested in maintaining a light footprint, less than truckload options can help ensure you’re not contributing to over-polluted roads.
