Do You Need To Ship To Florida

Shipping to Florida remains a challenge for truckload shippers. Known primarily as a consumption state Florida inbound rates typically cost more than outbound shipments. Additionally, Florida is a seasonal agricultural shipping state that affects truckload and rail shipping rates. However, LTL rates remain competitive throughout the year due to the abundance of freight and competition from carriers.

What is LTL shipping?

LTL shipping is an acronym for less than truckload. LTL shipping is by far the most prevalent type of outbound shipping in Florida. LTL allows carriers to pool your shipment with similar shipments heading in the same direction and saves you money all the while receiving great service. LTL pricing is affected by weight, freight class, dimensions and the distance traveled. Commodities that ship in Florida run the gamut and include aerospace or pharmaceutical companies that are big industries within Florida.

Florida Freight Shipping Service

Shipping freight to Florida has never been easier and can be tailored to the customer’s needs. We can design a plan for your Florida freight shipping needs that meet your shipping budget and won’t cut corners on service. Our LTL carriers maintain terminals in most major cities in Florida that offer consistent reliable service. The rule of thumb is if you have less than 5000 pounds then it is best to use LTL standard services. If your shipment is more than 5000 pounds you may qualify for a spot quote or volume discount. Florida freight shipping whether LTL or truckload is efficient seeing as most destinations are only 1-2 days away from Florida’s busiest port located in Miami.

Is Flatbed Service Only For Truckload?

The short answer is no, but flatbed truck service is almost always shipped as a full truckload. Namely, because flatbed freight is very heavy or bulky which usually utilizes the capacity of a truck. Typically the max weight limit for a flatbed is 48000 pounds, however, innovations in lighter weight trailers allow hauling of heavier shipments. Partial flatbed truckload shipping is not uncommon as many items are too bulky to ship in enclosed trailers. For example, commodities that get shipped on flatbeds include forklifts, aircraft engines, and construction equipment.
