LTL Freight Liability Guideline

In the LTL shipping world, a carrier's liability coverage due to loss or damage is often times related to the freight class used and the commodity shipped. Below please find a general guideline that shows each carrier and their corresponding liability by class. Please keep in mind that this is just a general guideline as sometimes many other factors affecting a carrier's liability could be involved. For example, when shipping new furniture with R & L Carriers, the liability is always $1 per lb. shipped, regardless of the class. This guideline is for new goods only. Please feel free to contact us for liability information regarding a specific shipment. For information regarding additional cargo insurance, please contact us.
