LTL freight involves sharing trailer space with other shipments, which means you don‚Äôt 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.
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.
An LTL shipper is the party that wishes to ship their goods from one location to another. An LTL carrier is the company that transports the shipment for the shipper.
