When It Makes Sense To Move From LTL to FTL Freight

In today’s competitive marketplace, freight shippers should utilize every solution possible to save money, reduce hassle and grow their business. Many shippers have found great success in less-than-truckload (LTL) freight shipping and will continue to do so. However, freight shippers should also consider when it makes sense to add full truckload (FTL) to their shipping toolbox.

FTL freight offers solutions that simply aren’t available with LTL shipping. The key is knowing when to utilize each of these services for optimal outcomes.
