True LTL is the name of a new pricing option offered by Con-way Freight, the less-than-truckload carrier. The capped pricing model gives customers simplified truckload-style pricing for large LTL shipments. According to Con-way, the option is predictable and less expensive than truckload, while eliminating the uncertainty, complexity and waste of traditional LTL pricing models. True LTL pricing applies the formula commonly used in truckload shipping, removing unexpected LTL charges such as the lineal foot rule. Through capped pricing, customers never pay more than truckload, Con-way said. The model also offers guaranteed, on-time delivery, same-day pickup and the advantages of reduced fuel consumption, carbon emissions and traffic congestion. Con-way Freight provides guaranteed, day-definite regional and transcontinental service through a network of more than 300 service centers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
