Statistics from the US Department of Transportation show more than 700,000 registered motor carriers are traversing our highways and roads. These trucks, which can be packed with everything from bricks and stone to dog food and grocery items, keep thousands of American businesses afloat. For business owners shipping these products across the country, precise planning and high-level tracking are required. But with increasing rates and a wide range of delays to overcome, overseeing a shipment of LTL freight is easier said than done.
For overworked business owners, managing multiple shipments can seem impossible in today's freight landscape. But the reality is that many businesses rely on less-than-truckload shipments to keep their doors open. When these shipments are compromised, their business is too. But there's a viable solution: LTL freight brokers in Albuquerque, NM like RelyEx provide reliable solutions to common LTL shipment problems, eliminating the stress and worry of LTL shipping.
With more than 30 combined years of LTL experience and a solutions-oriented team, RelyEx is your go-to choice for streamlined, efficient LTL shipping services. To understand the true value of RelyEx's less-than-truckload shipping options, it helps to understand first what LTL shipping is and why it's used.
In the freight industry, LTL stands for "less-than-truckload." It is a widely-used method of transportation for smaller shipments that don't require the space of a full truckload. In an LTL shipment, several customers' loads are placed onto one truck, which helps reduce how much it costs to ship those products.
In fact, if your freight doesn't fill an entire trailer but weighs 150-15,000 lbs., LTL freight shipping in Albuquerque, NM, may be the most efficient, cost-conscious way to transport your products. That's because, in an LTL setup, you're only paying for the space your freight takes up. LTL shipping companies like RelyEx optimize LTL loads by choosing the most efficient routes at the best rates so your cargo gets to where it needs to go without any issues.
Business owners often choose LTL freight services in the following circumstances:
When it comes to LTL delivery options, there are a lot to choose from. But not every LTL broker is created equally. Some LTL companies do not have the tools or technology to track your shipments and optimize your routes. In worst-case scenarios, they may not be insured or reliable. If you're looking for an experienced LTL carrier that exceeds expectations with time-tested strategies and innovative technologies, look no further than RelyEx.

When your freight is too light for full truckloads but too heavy for basic parcel carriers like UPS, LTL shipping is a great option to consider. When you use an LTL shipping company like RelyEx, you get even more value. We've been over some of the basics associated with LTL freight shipping - now let's touch on some of the biggest benefits of using a company to handle logistics from start to finish.
One of the most common reasons clients use LTL services is because they're able to save money. LTL shipping is much less expensive than the alternative, which is to hire a private driver and truck. When you go in on LTL services with other shippers, you can have your products delivered at a fraction of the cost of going private. In this setup, you pay for space you use, not the space you don't use, which is common in full truckload freight shipping.
As an added benefit, relying on an LTL freight company like RelyEx can lower your warehouse costs since more shipments can be sent at a time. That means you don't have to wait weeks or even months for a trailer to fill up.
When you use a parcel carrier like FedEx, you can only ship up to 150 pounds at a time. That means you'd have to break down your shipment into separate boxes in order to ship. With LTL freight shipping, your packages can be palletized and shrink-wrapped so they're shipped in a single load.
At RelyEx, our team knows how important your shipment is, whether you're sending thousands of pounds of products or a single pallet. That's why we ensure your products are packaged correctly and have security protocols baked into every service we offer. Plus, by keeping your freight together, we decrease the chance of damaging your cargo, which pleases your clients and boosts your customers' satisfaction.
The magic of LTL shipping lies in the fact that we fill fewer trailers with more freight. Doing so reduces global emissions and makes the process much quicker. Imagine using a semi-truck to haul products that only fill a quarter of the trailer. It would waste money, time, and space that could be used for other products. With LTL shipping, you're protecting the environment and reducing the number of partially-filled trucks on the road. This, in turn, saves you money and makes you an eco-friendly company - something you can use as a selling point for your business.
LTL providers like RelyEx use advanced logistics technology to ensure your cargo arrives on time and without damage. By investing in technology like GlobalTranz, we save our clients from doing so themselves. With GlobalTranz, our clients gain access to robust tracking options like real-time freight locations, so you can monitor your shipment's progress. With GlobalTranz, you get more than just a way to book your LTL cargo â you benefit from our qualified network of carriers, expert logistics support, and leading technology features.
It's impossible to say exactly how much your LTL shipping may cost because the NMFC, or National Motor Freight Classification, determines those prices. Using this standard, pricing is dictated for commodities moving in intrastate, interstate, and foreign commerce. Items are grouped into 18 different classes, based on four characteristics:
If you're shipping a product that is more likely to be damaged, stolen, or cause damage to other items, it may affect LTL shipment pricing.
Does your product require specific care or handling instructions? If so, you can probably expect higher prices.
This factor accounts for how much space your item occupies in relation to its weight or the weight per cubic foot for each piece of freight you are shipping.
How easy is it to load and transport your commodity? Can it be loaded and transported with other items?
When combined, these characteristics are used to establish an NMFC code for your LTL cargo. These codes are crucial, as they help your LTL carrier understand the challenges of shipping your products. If the item you need to ship has a high NMFC code, it's because it's more difficult to transport, which usually means it's more expensive to ship.
Depending on where and how often you ship LTL freight, your broker may choose a regional or national LTL carrier. Regional carriers often service a group of states within a region. National carriers have a larger footprint and can often eliminate the need to use several carriers for your shipments. RelyEx has the infrastructure and strategies for all of your LTL shipping - contact our office today to learn more about your options.
Though regional and national carriers are different, they often use similar models for shipping. Two of the most popular types of shipping methods include hub and spoke distribution and LTL consolidation.
In this traditional model, your shipments go through a network of warehouses, terminals, and hub facilities where your products are grouped with other shipments. Your freight then travels to local "spokes" (or terminals), where they are delivered. If you need to ship freight over short distances, this model may be a good choice to consider.
Some common benefits of the hub and spoke model include:
LTL consolidated shipping is a model where LTL carriers bring several shipments from different shippers to a final destination. Instead of using hubs and spokes along the shipping route to bundle freight and move cargo, LTL consolidation works by taking multiple shipments and turning them into a single truckload. This truck then makes multiple stops, where your products are delivered.
Some of the most common benefits of LTL consolidation include:
At RelyEx, our goal is to expertly manage the movement of your freight so you can focus on your core business. With more than 20 years of combined experience with LTL freight shipping in Albuquerque, NM, our team can select the most efficient and cost-effective model for your needs. That way, you can accomplish your day-to-day tasks while we handle the heavy lifting and any logistical challenges.
At RelyEx, we believe that trustworthy, comprehensive, and streamlined LTL shipping options are better for your business. And for us, what's better for your business is better for ours. That's why, when it comes to LTL shipping, we work tirelessly to ensure every aspect of your freight experience is embedded excellence. We take this unique approach because our management were once customers like you. They were people who, for one reason or another, had to deal with frustrating and often unsolved shipping and logistics challenges. Today, we take pride in solving those challenges and only partner with carriers who match our high standards.
If you're looking for an LTL company in Albuquerque, NM that prioritizes customer service, strong communication, and proactive thinking, we're here to help you avoid delayed shipments and missed expectations.(843) 885-3082

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —
Residents in the Montecito Estates neighborhood are afraid to leave their homes after multiple attacks from aggressive dogs.
People are asking their HOA and Animal Welfare to step up and find a solution.
"I hate feeling like a hostage in my own home," Laura Solomon said.
According to multiple security camera videos throughout the neighborhood, a tan-looking pit bull is seen attacking children.
One video shows two young boys riding scooters when the dog attacks. The boys jump off their scooters, screaming for help as they try to run back inside the home.
Another person sent photos to our KOAT newsroom of the aftermath of her dog being mauled by the pit bull.
Her medical bills totaled more than $1,400. According to Animal Welfare reports, these incidents date all the way back to May 2022.
You can now apply for your share of a $725 million Facebook data privacy settlement. Here's how
"It's been almost a year since these dogs have gotten loose in our neighborhood and just wreaked complete havoc. Pets are being mauled or attacked. Young kids are being chased into their houses," Solomon said.
Down the street, Amanda Bearce recalls her incident when she encountered the dog after it attacked another pet in the neighborhood.
"Very bloody, like literally. And it was very creepy. He rat ran up to my husband with that big smile," Bearce said. "You knew something had to have happened because of just the amount of blood that there was. It was pretty intense. And our kids saw it too and were so freaked out by the amount of blood."
We reached out to Montecito Estates HOA. They released this statement that reads in part:
"The board of directors is aware of two incidents involving the aggressive behavior of dogs. There were no serious injuries and both incidents were promptly reported to the city of Albuquerque animal welfare department. Montecito Estates HOA has no authority to ban, seize or expel personal pets as they are the private property of their owner."
Animal Welfare says they cannot comment on the case as it's still being investigated.

When Bernadette Peters steps onto a set, she’s ready for action.
In the case of the Apple TV+ series, “High Desert,” Peters found herself with an ensemble cast many productions would be jealous of.
That’s part of what piqued her interest with the series.
“It’s so well-written and so original,” Peters says. “I haven’t read anything that was so well-written in such a very long time. I got excited about it and then of course, it has Patricia Arquette. Things can’t get better than that.”
“High Desert” follows Peggy Newman, played by Arquette, who is an irresistible, mystifying fusion of qualities.
Your email is safe with us, we don’t spam. Cancel anytime.
She’s a hustler, loves easily, feels everyone else’s pain, operates under her own unique code of ethics, and possesses some interesting survival mechanisms – which is essential because Peggy is an ex-heroin junkie who now proudly calls herself a methadone addict.
Peggy lives in the Californian desert, working at a minor tourist attraction, Pioneertown, where she is part of a troupe reenacting life in the Old West. There, she is the queen bee, looked up to by her peers while always using her blazing street-smart intellect and wit to win any argument.
She is the one voice fighting for justice for those close to her, which leads her to right a wrong for a friend. In the glow of that triumph, her best friend Carol, played by Weruche Opia, suggests that Peggy’s true calling might be as a private investigator.
It would certainly bring the much-needed income Peggy needs to hold onto the house of her late mother, Rosalyn, played by Peters, before her sister, played by Christine Taylor and brother, played by Keir O’Donnell sell it.
The series also stars Rupert Friend, Brad Garrett and Matt Dillon.
New Mexico native Jay Roach directed all eight episodes.
Roach had signed on to direct only the pilot but quickly changed course because of the script.
“This was a great chance to give the audience a ride they won’t see coming,” Roach says. “They’ll feel the predicament and the stakes but most of all, it’s a ride.”
Roach took an empathetic approach with the creative vision for the series. “I had to imagine what Peggy was going through and why,” Roach continues. “Why would she get herself into this trouble? And all the while I’m doing this, I would simultaneously empathize with the audience about what they’re taking in and what matters to them. My favorite challenge is taking something that looks like it might be too chaotic and somehow make it unified and this show, Peggy in particular, feeds into that. Peggy is like a queen bee, buzzing about, pollinating her world and those in it with her almost functional-dysfunctional ADD-meets-tremendous desire to help everyone. It’s a crazy tone but that’s what I love about it.”
Peters enjoyed working with Roach at the helm because he kept the vision all the way through production.
She also pulled double duty playing Rosalyn and actress Ginger, who brings another level to the story.
“Her mother is caring and beautiful,” Peters says. “Then you have (Ginger) who is totally self-involved and narcissistic. She’s not very pleasant and is all about herself. These are two very different types of people.”
Peters says she was able to get into the flow of acting and went with every scene.
“Ginger took a few days of getting into character,” she says. “Rosalyn was just a loving person and it was easy.”
Peters says the story is one that people could relate to because it’s about how we handle grief.
“Peggy is looking for moments of happiness,” she says. “We’ve all lost someone special to us and it is difficult to move forward. This is a production that I needed. I think it will resonate with audiences.”
Now streaming The Apple TV+ series “High Desert” is directed by Albuquerque native Jay Roach and is streaming on Apple TV+.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Former Albuquerque Isotopes standout infielder Pat Valaika has returned to the Duke City, wearing the uniform of the opponent. Valaika is in the dugout of the Tacoma Rainiers. “You know, parts of four seasons I played with a lot of really good guys, some good teams, had some good games here,” said Valaika. “You know, it’s a very offensive place, so it’s fun to come back and see the b...
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Former Albuquerque Isotopes standout infielder Pat Valaika has returned to the Duke City, wearing the uniform of the opponent. Valaika is in the dugout of the Tacoma Rainiers. “You know, parts of four seasons I played with a lot of really good guys, some good teams, had some good games here,” said Valaika. “You know, it’s a very offensive place, so it’s fun to come back and see the ball fly a little bit.”
Valaika was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in 2013 and earned his first call-up to the big club in 2016. He split time between the Isotopes and Rockies for four seasons. While in Albuquerque, he even hit for the cycle twice. Valaika was released by the Rockies in 2019 and has seen a lot of different clubs since, moving from the Baltimore Orioles organization to the Atlanta Braves.
Story continues below:
In March of this year, Valaika signed a minor league deal with the Seattle Mariners. He understands that he is nearing the end of his career, but has found perspective and a new joy for playing the game. “You know I have grown up a little bit and try to enjoy the game a little more as I get older, just kind of approach each day like it could be my last because as you start to get older opportunities start to dry up a little bit,” said Valaika. “So, I am trying to do the best that I can for as long as I can, but I still think that I can bring stuff to the table and compete and that is why I am still here.”
Valaika comes from a baseball-playing family. He is one of four brothers to play professional baseball. His older brother Chris is currently a hitting coach for the Cleveland Guardians.

On Friday, New Mexico women’s golf tees off in the NCAA championships at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. It’s the Lobos’ first NCAA championship appearance since 2010, at a course UNM head coach Jill Trujillo has never played but recruited out of a junior tournament held there for “years and years.”
The NCAA championship format: after three rounds of stroke play, the top 15 of 36 teams advance to the final round on May 22. From there, eight teams advance to three rounds of match play to decide a national champion.
The Lobo team in Arizona consists of senior Jenny Lertsadwattana, senior Lauren Lehigh, junior Myah McDonald, sophomore Lisa-Marie Pagliano and freshman Maria Caparros Levin.
UNM’s 16th NCAA championship appearance overall comes after the Lobos rallied on the final day of their NCAA regional to finish a combined 25-over at TPC San Antonio for the fifth and final qualifying spot.
In their two biggest tournaments of the year, the Lobos dug deep for another strong finish after waking up on the outside looking in.
“They have guts,” Trujillo said of her team. “They don’t like losing and winning, they know now is an option. They knew we had to stay steady and in the present, hit good shots, make good putts on that day.”
In some ways, just being there is reason enough for good feelings. The Lobos have been arguably the Mountain West’s premier program since 2010. Even still, an NCAA championship appearance eluded them, successful seasons coming and going.
“It’s hard,” Trujillo said. “It’s hard to make it to the NCAA championships. First, you gotta make it to regionals and then it’s just one tournament.
“We talked about the same thing at regionals – it’s just one tournament. The fact that they had that really good mentality and bought into that part of their own game, I think it really catapulted us.”
And in some ways, just being there isn’t enough. After all, the road back has shown Trujillo and her team what they can do in these spots – with the right approach.
“You can only do and control what you’re doing at the moment,” Trujillo said. “That’s what gets people through all these rounds in the heat out here. And they all have really good attitudes, too. There’s just no downers on this team.”
