Less than truckload (LTL) consolidation and freight pooling options can save time and money, but companies without the right technology and expertise often find themselves…
- Confused about factors like class ratings, tariff schedules, service coverage maps and claims
- Operating without a clear LTL freight consolidation strategy

What Is LTL Freight Consolidation?
LTL freight consolidation combines multiple LTL shipments within a particular geographic region into a truckload or intermodal container that is then line hauled to a destination point. There, the shipments are broken down and shipped LTL for local final mile delivery.
The LTL freight pool process can involve multiple orders from the same shipper or distributor, or loads from multiple companies with nearby locations. Freight pooling is much like carpooling, but instead of a combination of people, it's consolidation of freight.
