LTL Shippers Alert: Potential Shipment Length Changes


Quick alert from Sunset’s Strategic Account Management team:

LTL carriers have been implementing rule changes to limit the total length and piece length of shipments. As a general rule, shipments greater that 12 linear feet, or with single items that are longer than 8 feet may be subject to additional charges. Please notify your Sunset account manager if you have a shipment that is hitting either of these lengths — they will look at various pricing options to determine the best approach for that shipment.
