Have you ever experienced extra fees and charges due to the “linear foot rule?” Freight carriers will add unexpected fees if your shipment doesn’t fit pre-determined parameters for size, shape and weight. Avoid these costly fees and expenses by calculating your shipment’s linear feet with the FreightorGator LTL Linear Footage Tool and visualizing how it can be best arranged on the truck.
The tool is easy to use. Simply:
- Enter in the length, width, height and quantity of each of your pallets or items.
- Are these items stackable? If so, check the box marked “Stackable?”
- Are your items light and small enough to be turned to the orientation that best fits in the truck? If so, check the box marked “Turnable?”
- Click “Continue”
- That’s it! The tool will automatically calculate the linear feet of all of your possible orientations. Now you’ll be informed when comparing and booking your LTL shipments.
