If your shipment is larger than a parcel, but isn’t large enough to qualify as an entire truckload, less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping is what you need. ArcBest® offers LTL solutions including those delivered through our own network in ABF Freight® — one of the nation’s most trusted carriers since 1923. Whether you’re shipping regionally or nationally, it’s an economical way to ship palletized or loose freight.
Reliable LTL Shipping
Less-than-truckload freight shipping is critical to everyday commerce. It also plays a role in getting supplies and components to manufacturers, construction sites and offices across the country to keep business going. That’s why it’s important to have a carrier that operates efficiently, with flexible options and complete shipment visibility.
From proactive tracking to custom reporting, ArcBest’s dynamic tools let you schedule, monitor, expedite, reroute and merge shipments for maximum control. And because we combine an innovative transportation network with a detailed quality improvement process, over 99 percent of ABF Freight shipments move claim-free.
