    LTL Trends and Challenges: Density-Based Pricing

    LTL Trends and Challenges: Density-Based Pricing

    - by Transplace

    Within the last few years, less-than-truckload (LTL) rates and capacity have fluctuated. Many carriers have shifted from the traditional National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) rate-setting formula to density-based pricing, which prices freight according to the amount of space the shipment uses in the truck. This new pricing model, along with other recent industry trends, has had a significant impact on shippers – making it important to understand the new pricing methods for LTL shipments, what’s currently happening in the LTL industry, and some of its key market challenges.

    A Little Co-Loading Luck Delivers a Lot of Green Transportation

    - by Transplace

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  In the spirit of today’s holiday we thought it was only appropriate to show the “green” transportation benefits customers can realize through close collaboration. Underutilized capacity costs shippers millions in wasted fuel and resources every year. Many trucks today travel with dense products that don’t maximize volume, or travel with large goods that take up space but not weight. These over-the-road (OTR) shipments often leave up to 80% of cubic capacity unused!  This unused capacity can really add up over time, but with a little bit of luck and the right partners, you can create the perfect load and experience multiple green benefits. Check out our co-loading infographic to see how some of our customer are benefitting from close collaboration.
