When it comes to shipping freight, there are a multitude of different options in which the shipment needs to be delivered. There are many different factors to consider in trucking services including the size and weight of your shipment, freight classification, and delivery timelines. Truck shipments are divided into two broad categories: less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload (FTL).
Less than Truckload Transportation:
Less than truckload freight is the ideal option when shipping small amounts of freight (typically 1 to 5 pallets and weighing up to 6,000 pounds per shipment). This is the most cost-efficient solution as the remaining space is filled with other shipments. With LTL freight, the truckload is made up of several smaller shipments, and you only pay for the space in the truck that you need. For example, if your shipment only takes up one-fourth of the space on the truck, you only pay for that much space. The rest of the truck will then be filled with other small shipments from other companies, making LTL freight shipping a great choice for small businesses.
Full truckload transportation
Full truckload transportation means that the shipment will take up an entire truck by itself. It's used to ship heavy freight (typically 20,000 pounds or more) or a large amount of product. With FTL, your freight is the only freight moving on an individual truck, and is faster as compared to LTL (less-than-truckload transportation). When deciding on the most appropriate type of shipment for your freight, always keep in mind the type of shipment, the size of shipment, and the speed in which the shipment needs to be to reach its destination. If you have a large shipment that’s delicate in nature and needs to arrive quickly, FTL is your best bet. If you have a smaller shipment that is anything less than six pallets, then LTL will fit your needs.
