The information presented here is intended to give you ideas on what you can accomplish to have distinctive products and packaging.  This information does not cover all options, lead times and circumstances, so it is important that you call us to discuss in detail what you want to accomplish.
As we have added territories with greater shipping distances, we have been able to save customers some money by shipping LTL quantities of 8 or more pallets on "Shared Truckloads."  These are truckload shipments that leave our dock fully loaded and make 2-3 stops at customers who are on the way to a final destination.  We usually have to find customers who within a 1-2 hour drive of each other to avoid over-night layovers by the driver. 
 
We have tested this program with good results into the Florida and Ohio areas and are expanding it for shipments into Texas, Oklahoma and other Midwest and Southern U.S. locations.  We are able to deliver product at freight costs only a little higher than shipping your own truckload.  We sometimes need 5-7 days to arrange for other orders to fill out the truck trailer, so your lead times are important.  Call your sales person at Richards to find out how this program can help you.
