[e-Book] The Less-Than-Truckload Guide: From the Basics to Best Practices for Complete Mastery

Thomasholmes, in business since 1997, has focused primarily on Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) shipping management for shippers, providing technology and services to reduce costs and resources needed in order to effectively manage transportation departments. In fact, our transportation management system, the Thomasholmes Rater, handles millions of shipments not only via LTL but in Full Truckload and Small package modes.

Needless to say, it is of special interest for Thomasholmes to help educate shippers of the possible ways to ship their freight in order for shippers to make the best decisions for their business.

In this e-book we will explore what is LTL shipping and how Less-Than-Truckload shipping came about and then proliferated after the deregulation of the trucking industry in the 1980s. We will then cover the benefits of LTL Shipping to have more control, decrease costs, and offer flexibility as well as giving you tips on how to save on LTL shipping by explaining what factors create an LTL rate and what you can do to in order to manage those factors better. Then we will conclude the e-book highlighting the rise of employing a transportation management system to both manage and report on LTL shipping rates as well as touch on how third party logistics companies who focus on LTL shipping can help drive value for a company to allow the shipper to focus more on their core business.

Our goal is to empower our readers, customers, and shippers of freight with knowledge in order to better manage and decrease resources needed to run transportation departments. But first, in order to make sure we are all speaking the same language, due to the jargon, like any industry, in the freight an transportation industry, we will cover some common terminology.
