Reasons Why LTL Instant Rate Quotes Would Not Be Available
There are a number of factors which could cause a shipment to not produce a quote on LTL Instant Rates. When this happens, you’ll be directed to our marketplace to create a listing. The following factors could keep you from getting a quote.
Weight and Dimensions
- Shipment total weight greater than 43,999 lbs
- Any single piece of freight weighing more than 3,000 lbs when liftgate is required
- Any single piece of freight weighing more than 6,000 lbs

- Total piece count over 10 units when liftgate is required
- Total piece count over 30 units
- Blind shipment coordination
- Protect from freezing service
- Sort & Segregate service
- Freight must be packaged such that it can moved with a pallet-jack or forklift (palletized, crated, fork accessible tote, etc.). For example, 5 or more loose boxes will not quote for LTL Instant Rates.
- Loose items will be refused by LTL Carriers
- LTL Instant Rates are currently only available for USA to USA shipments, Canada to USA shipments, USA to Canada, and very limited Canada to Canada shipments.
