Your business needs to keep products in front of customers in order to succeed. A consistent, reliable less than truckload (LTL) process can make all the difference in your speed to market—a critical component to minimizing out of stock product, getting your goods in customers’ hands, and minimizing or eliminating retailer chargebacks. Unfortunately, LTL shipments can be complicated, and a strategy that requires the transportation of LTL loads to retailers with multiple distribution centers (DCs) is even more so. Luckily, a retail consolidation program may offer the strategy you need to simplify your standard LTL process and stay in compliance.
