What is FTL freight?
You've heard the terms truckload and less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping. The words alone make the difference obvious, but how do you know which service if right for your freight? Here’s the quick answer: Generally, shipments comprised of 10+ pallets, those weighing at least 15,000-20,000 pounds, or those filling most or all of a trailer are considered full truckload, or truckload, freight. But this doesn’t mean your shipments have to be large to use FTL services. There are other benefits to shipping cargo with FTL equipment. Because the truck is dedicated to your shipment, FTL shipments usually arrive faster at their destination — unlike LTL shipping where the truck stops to load and unload freight from other companies. This shipping option also gives you the ability to keep your urgent cargo moving overnight. Plus, with door-to-door delivery there’s less handling of your cargo, which means less chance for lost, stolen or damaged goods. But on the off chance that might happen, we connect you with freight shipping insurance so you can feel secure about your investment.
