Trailer Loading & Configuration
Choosing the right mode of transportation for your cargo is the first step in developing a solid routing & optimization strategy. We specialize in partial truckload (LTL), load-to-ride (LTR), and full-truckload (TL) solutions, depending on your shipping needs in or out of Fontana and the surrounding areas.
Here’s what you should know:
LTL & Truckload Distribution
Less-than-truckload shipments can expedite shipping and save you money on transportation for small cargo. However, if you manage high-volume cargo, consider switching to full-truckload solutions to simplify your routing & optimization strategy. This method reduces your overall transportation costs, boosts your shipping capacity, and fulfills large orders at the end of the supply chain.
Consolidating truckloads will help you reorganize resources into a more manageable inventory.
Here are some of the benefits of consolidated truckloads:
- Reduced freight costs due to volume shipping
- Reduced freight claims due to less handling
Cross-Dock and Pooling Strategies
Cross-docking and pooling strategies accommodate constant inbound and outbound loads from your distribution hubs. These strategies require you to route multiple TL trucks from different suppliers to arrive at a warehouse or pool point. Workers in these pool points will pack your cargo onto LTL trucks and plan optimal routes to customers.
Cross-docking and pooling allow carriers to deliver your cargo within very small time windows.
