Does Your Freight Fit: Partial Truckload Shipping

Finding the right mode for your freight can sometimes feel like a puzzle, especially when it’s not enough to fit a full truck but not exactly a fit for less-than-truckload (LTL). There’s a third option available: Partial Truckload shipping, a safe, costeffective solution for the right kind of freight.

BENEFITS OF PARTIAL SHIPPING:

  • TRANSIT TIMES ARE SIMILAR TO TRUCKLOAD
  • THE RISK OF DAMAGE IS MINIMIZED
  • FEWER STOPS ARE MADE IN TRANSIT
  • AVOID FREIGHT RECLASSIFICATION FEES AND OTHER RELATED ACCESSORIALS
  • NO MINIMUM DENSITY FEES
  • NO FREIGHT CLASS NEEDED

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOUR FREIGHT MIGHT BE RIGHT FOR PARTIAL SHIPPING?

  • 6-15 PALLETS THAT ARE 1,800 POUNDS PER PALLET OR LESS
  • OPEN-WINDOW PICKUP TIMES
  • 24-HOUR TENDER LEAD TIME
  • 24-48 HOUR DELIVERY WINDOW
  • FREIGHT IS NOT TIME CRITICAL

Even if your freight doesn't meet all the standards for partial shipping, it could still be a fit. To connect with a Schneider Partial expert and learn if partial is right for your freight, email solutions@schneider.com.
