Reasons Why LTL Published Rate Quotes Would Not Be Available

Updated

There are a number of factors which could cause a shipment to not produce a quote on LTL Published 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.

  • Shipment total weight greater than 19,999 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

Accessorial

  • Blind shipment coordination

  • Hazmat
  • Protect from freezing service
  • Sort & Segregate service

Packaging

  • 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 Published Rates.
  • Loose items will be refused by LTL Carriers

Locations

  • LTL Published Rates are currently only available for USA to USA shipments, Canada to USA shipments, and USA to Canada shipments.

If your shipment meets none of these criteria and the LTL Published Rate Quotes are still not available to you, please contact our Commercial Support team by clicking here and they can assist you in investigating the issue.
