National Logistics Network offers quality less than truckload (LTL) freight shipping services. Our network provides access to hundreds of LTL carriers around the country. You save money shipping your LTL material with us because of our volume of business with these carriers.
LTL shipping services can save you money and provide you with a number of accessorial services typically not offered by full truckload carriers. These optional services include lift gate service at pickup or delivery, residential (also known as "non-commercial") service at pickup or delivery, inside delivery, notification prior to delivery, freeze protection, and others. These services are usually billed at a predetermined, flat fee, or for a weight-based surcharge calculated as a rate per pound or hundredweight.
What makes a shipment LTL?

What is a shipping class?
In the U.S., every item shipped is categorized under a National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) and corresponding class for LTL shipments. The NMFC is a standardized system used to give customers a streamlined pricing structure for transporting freight. Every item National Logistics Network ships is classed based on its density and sensitivity. Get started with our customized LTL shipping services today.
