There are many cost benefits of LTL shipping.

Experience you can count on

LTL shipping logistics can quickly become complicated. You need to be sure that your partial load will make it to its destination on time, but there is always a risk of delays, damage, and losses when you don’t have experience managing shipping logistics. Working with a 3PL company will allow you to benefit from their years of experience without having to navigate a steep learning curve. At AFP Global Logistics, we not only have more than 25 years of experience managing LTL shipping logistics, but we also have relationships with multiple carriers which allows us to choose the ideal shipping solution for your unique needs, budget, and timeframe.

Resources you can trust

Finding a carrier who can manage LTL shipments and negotiating with them for the best possible price is a job into and of itself. If you don’t have existing relationships with carriers, you’re unlikely to have the resources needed to secure the best price. You’ll also need to find a carrier who offers flexibility so that they can continually meet your needs, even if those needs change throughout the year due to seasonal inventory. By working with a 3PL company like AFP Global Logistics, you’ll have access to a vast network of resources, professionals, and carriers who will be able to ensure that all of your shipping needs are met and your budget and timeline are honored. Since your logistics provider will be able to negotiate volume discounts, you’ll save money as well as headaches.
