LTL Online Education
and CertificationLearn More
LTL is an incredibly complex mode of transportation, and experience in the field isn’t easily gained. When longtime employees with decades of experience in the industry leave, a hole in the collective knowledge of their organizations opens up. The same holds true for upwardly mobile logistics leaders that change jobs. To fill this void, SMC³, in partnership with Logistics Training Center, has developed LTL online education and the industry’s online LTL certification program. Through five online, self-paced on-demand courses and classroom-style lectures, SMC³ shares its lifetime of LTL expertise with logistics stakeholders and future supply chain leaders looking take their careers to the next level.

The course curriculum covers:
- The fundamentals of LTL
- Carrier pricing and costing
- Transportation laws and regulations
- Business analytics
