Sources for LTL shipping?

(1/1)

Donnie Evans:
I'm looking for something most economical but not "Cuzzin' Stinky's Truckin' Service."  Found a deal on 4 subs but its just too far to drive.  UPS and FedEX have shown around around $650-$700 for two standard 48x40 pallets, loaded approximately 46" high, weighing at most 450lbs each.  That just seems kind of high to me.  Anybody have any good companies they have used before?  Thanks

PS - If this needs to be in the Basement/Marketplace, please move for me.

I've used CEVA logistics before and their rates were reasonable, but then again, my company has a contract with them.

I've had good luck (and low price) with R&L.

Doug Johnson:
For one off, door to door ltl shipping in the past, Fed EX Freight has always been about the most reasonable.  The single biggest thing you can do to cut shipping costs is to find a way to ship to and/or from locations with loading docks

Donnie Evans:
It's not door to door... I have a loading dock at work and the shipper has one as well.
