LTL Freight Broker

Move Your Products Faster and Smarter with a LTL Freight Broker

You don’t need a full truckload to get your products out the door.

Sheer Will Optimize Your LTL Freight With Our LTL Freight Broker Services

It’s an issue that many shippers face: you have more than six pallets but less than a full truckload. Sometimes, these shipments need to ship to different customers. Full truckload carriers can help, but the shipping costs are usually more than you are willing to accept. Where you see a problem, Sheer Logistics sees an opportunity. 

We leverage our large network of carriers to find the right match and get your freight where it needs to go. Our team optimizes your load to give you the flexibility, cost effectiveness, and efficiency of a full-load option. Less than truckload shipping (LTL) requires technology, communication, proven techniques, and a 3PL provider you can trust.

Sheer Logistics provides a clear vision that enhances your transportation management. Our goal is to be your trusted supply chain management and logistics partner. Learn more about us or our leadership team and get to know Sheer.

We’re experts at simplifying the LTL freight process. Through our LTL freight broker services, we make sure you can make the right logistics decisions for your business.

What Is LTL Freight Shipping and When Should You Use It?

LTL shipping requires more care and attention than a full truckload; while it reduces costs for shippers, it’s important to know exactly when to use it. LTL freight works best for cargo that:

  • Weighs 150 pounds or more
  • Is too large to parcel (take to the post office) but smaller than a truckload
  • Is palletized or crated
  • Is a fraction of the cost of a full truckload
  • Has flexible delivery times
  • Can have longer transit times than full truckload shipments

Sheer has established relationships with top carriers, which gives us the ability to ship anything anywhere it needs to go.
