LTL freight (Less than Truckload) to and from Ralston, Washington refers to shipments too small for full truckloads. Instead, several small shipments are grouped together on a single vehicle, allowing companies to save money while also reducing their environmental impact. This type of shipping is best when dealing with products that are lightweight and not fragile. While larger carriers such as FedEx and UPS do offer this service, specialized LTL providers tend to have higher quality control and delivery times. In the end, it can be very beneficial for businesses to both financially and environmentally by making the choice to go with an LTL carrier for their shipment needs.
