Your freight is important and so are your expectations. Whether your less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments are traveling in town, across the country or over the border, you can count on Worldwide Express to expertly handle every request. Case in point — we serve 108,000+ customers and manage around 5,300 of their LTL freight shipments every day.


Shipments that are too large for parcel shipping but not large enough to fill a full truckload are called less-than-truckload, or LTL, freight. An LTL shipment typically weighs more than 150 and up to 15,000 lbs. and includes up to six pallets.

Because your shipment shares cargo space with other companies' shipments, you only pay for the area your freight occupies — which can be a nice cost savings for small businesses.

Maybe you don't always need LTL services. If business fluctuates and you're shipping less than 150 lbs., we'll help you easily move between parcel shipping and LTL freight. Busier than usually? It's easy to ramp up from LTL to FTL shipping  and back.
