Check Call with ArcBest’s Steven Leonard: No charges for LTL

Avoid getting hit with unnecessary LTL charges

Check Call the Show. News and Analysis for 3PLs and Freight Brokers.

On this week’s episode of Check Call, host Mary O’Connell and Steven Leonard, chief sales and customer engagement officer at ArcBest, sit down to talk about all things LTL shipping — oversize, overweight, volume charges and how to avoid them. 

Also on the podcast is a quick rundown of the future of the newly minted truck leasing task force created by Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. The task force, created as part of the federal infrastructure law signed by President Joe Biden in November, is part of progress made on the administration’s Trucking Action Plan.

The panel will include a maximum of 10 members representing commercial carriers, owner-operators, labor, consumer protection groups, law firms and businesses subject to trucking lease-purchase agreements.

Got any pain points or things you wish were better in the supply chain and the world of transportation? Contact O’Connell to be on a future episode of Check Call.
