Common questions about LTL

What is the Difference Between FTL and LTL Freight Shipping?

The most significant difference between LTL and FTL is the size of a shipment. Less-than-truckload (LTL) only takes up a portion of a trailer, full truckload (FTL) fills it entirely. When shipping FTL, you are responsible for the total costs associated with the truck, driver, fuel, and other transportation costs. With LTL, you share those costs with the other shippers that have loads in the truck.

How to ship LTL Freight?

LTL freight involves sharing trailer space with other shipments, which means you don’t need to wait until you have an entire truckload of items before you ship. You only pay the carrier for the space on the truck that you need, giving you versatility when it comes to shipment size and frequency.

What is considered an LTL Shipment?

LTL shipping, refers to the transportation of goods that do not require a full truckload. These smaller shipments, ranging anywhere from 150 lbs to 10,000 lbs, are instead grouped together (usually on pallets) and transported on one truck to their final destinations. While often logistically complex and requiring attention to detail regarding freight classes, weights, deadlines, and destinations for a variety of different shipments, LTL shipping can provide shippers with a flexible, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly way to move goods.
