Hello,

I was wondering what other people here have been using for their LTL freight services to ship to Boardsort. I ship from Juneau, Alaska via barge service to Seattle (Alaska Marine Lines, ~12 cents/lb) and then have to go LTL truck to Alliance OH (Lynden Transport). This shipping costs on this last leg have gone up substantially over the last year. Last year, I was paying about 60 cents per pound all the way from Alaska. Six months ago it was 72 cents per pound, and today I was quoted 93 cents per pounds. This obviously makes shipping less-valuable material (e.g., green motherboards) less attractive, even in 1000-pound batches. Fed-Ex and UPS freight service is out of the question as well (with my discount, still $1.16/lb from Seattle).

Any suggestions or insights?

Thanks!
