Announcement: New Shipment Rate Changes to Take Place
Warehouse1 would like to make everyone aware about a major change in the shipping rates and classification on all pallet rack LTL (Less-Than-Load) shipments. Regardless who the manufacturer is – this change will affect everyone.
The freight industry has made a change on many different product classes – re-classifying the freight rates on LTL shipments, and one of the product classes is racking. This classification change will be for virtually every case – DOUBLE (OR MORE) the cost of shipping LTL. This rate change went into effect for all shipments across the board on November 29th, 2014.
Following this effective date, many small shipments of pallet rack will actually be less expensive to ship at the “dedicated” or “full-truckload” rate, versus travel via the old LTL means of transportation.
Any quotes where an estimated freight cost for a less than truckload-rate were offered – should be re-submitted for a new freight estimate.
