possible delays in LTL deliveries LTL Delays


Getting an LTL carrier to show-up isn’t always as easy as scheduling the collection.  If the route doesn’t have a driver running it regularly, your cargo may have to sit a couple of days (and this could happen enroute as your cargo travels across the country). 

Once again, plan ahead.  If you require LTL delivery, allow for enough lead to get it picked up and delivered.  *Note:  lead times provided indicate the time required for the manufacturer to have your order ready to be shipped.  LTL deliveries have been running as scheduled since March, 2023.  

Be aware when ordering products requiring an LTL carrier that the driver will call to ensure someone is present to accept the delivery.  Answer the phone!  If you don’t answer the phone, the driver will not attempt delivery and the terminal may start charging fees to hold your property and/or return it to sender – either or both actions will ultimately cost more $$.
