Build a stronger LTL business with ShipCanada™
So how do some carriers achieve more reliable LTL volumes?
It might be more about "How" they price - not "What" they price.
Most small to medium sized carriers use an LTL rating system that looks like the example below:
|FROM CITY||TO CITY||1 Pallet||2 Pallets||3 Pallets||4 Pallets||5 Pallets||6 Pallets|
|Toronto, ON||London, ON||$150||$175||$200||$225||$250||$275|
Large LTL carriers prefer "CWT" or "Centum Weight" rating systems that looks like this:
|FROM CITY||TO CITY||MIN||L5S||500||1000||2000||5000||10000|
|Toronto, ON||London, ON||150.00||23.56||20.5||14.39||11.33||9.43||7.22|
Most complex dispatch systems (like ShipCanada's) cannot accept basic "pallet rates". we need to have the rates broken out into CWT pricing. Once this is done and you are in our system your rates will instantly start appearing on applicable freight.
Once ShipCanada converts your "pallet" rates into "CWT" rates we can upload them into the ShipCanada TMS where we will see your rates everytime we have a shipment in that particular lane.
Nothing changes with regards to billing & payment. When you receive a load confirmation from ShipCanada it will have the exact rate - based on our negotiated agreement with you. If the freight turns out to be "larger" or "heavier" you can bill higher according to the rate agreement (we will need confirmation of the increase in weight/dimension).
All rates are subject to equipment availability. We will always confirm you have availability before sending a dispatch.
1. Identify which shipping lane(s) you want to grow. Which lane(s) do you have the most availability on?
2. Decide ideally what you need for 1-5 pallets (using basic pallet rates).
3. Decide if rates apply in "both" directions.
