LTL FREIGHT SHIPPING
WHY LTL FREIGHT SHIPPING?
LTL freight shipping saves you money.
Freight shipping is the easiest way to move large and bulky items quickly and efficiently. When you don’t need a full truckload, you can save a lot of money with LTL freight shipping..
WHAT'S THE EASIEST & MOST AFFORDABLE WAY SHIP LTL FREIGHT?
You might suspect that you can save money by reaching out to LTL freight carriers to get LTL freight quotes directly from them. Such is not the case. Only shippers with minimum volume contracts get good deals from carriers.
That’s why LTL freight carriers substantially discount their rates for legitimate freight brokers and 3PLs (3rd Party Logistics providers) that are major shippers in their own right and handle all dealings between the carrier and the customer.
Aside from price, there are other reasons to enlist the help of a third-party logistics provider. LTL freight shipping can be complicated. Variables such as lanes, weight, dimensions, and freight classification add to what can be a confusing process.
Logistics providers are experts at simplifying this process for you. Trained LTL freight shipping agents can sort through all the details to maximize your savings and delivery times, so you can make the right logistics decisions for your business. Agents also help schedule specialized LTL freight services for your shipments.

Guaranteed Services may include both date- and time-specific needs for pick up or delivery, guaranteed within a predetermined time window (e.g., before noon on a Thursday, or after 5 p.m. on a Tuesday). Speak with our Freight Agents to arrange shipment with a carrier that offers such guarantees.
Limited Access Pick Ups/Deliveries are offered where locations or destinations restrict trucks from entering, such as: some residential areas, construction sites, military bases, schools, churches, and government facilities. RJmaritime works with carriers equipped to access such locations.
First and Final Mile Services include more than just freight pick up or delivery. First mile services can include inside pickup, packaging and dismantling, stair carries, and more. Final mile services can include inside delivery, removal of packaging materials, assembly or setup, and more.
