Indeed, this year has been a challenging one for most, with truck drivers on the frontline of the pandemic and the logistics industry as a whole turning to innovation to budget and save on resources.
One smart way to save is by collaborating with other shippers on a STL (shared truckload). The benefits far outweigh the risks, giving shippers the opportunity to streamline supply chains for fast, efficient and cost effective service.
This innovative way to move freight gives shippers more power in deciding how to get from point A to point B. Especially popular for LTL, different shipments following essentially the same route will be loaded onto a single vehicle for direct delivery.
All in all, by sharing trailer space anyone can benefit from cost savings and less waste. But, this type of shipping works best for LTL shipments. To be more specific, loads that measure around 48 linear feet (from 1 to 24 pallets), can be loaded together onto a reefer to fill it to capacity.
Let’s move on to the benefits of a shared truckload. Everyone partakes in the goods, even the planet!
