What is LTL Shipping?

LTL, or less than truckload, shipping is a method of transporting freight. It refers to transporting a shipment that does not take up the full capacity of a truck trailer. The LTL shipping method is designed for businesses that ship goods too big for parcel shipping but too small to fill an entire trailer. In order to completely fill the space of a trailer, freight carriers allow multiple shippers to share space on a single truck, which makes for a more cost-effective shipping method as shippers only have to pay for their portion of space.

Along with smaller freight, LTL shipping operates through a hub and spoke model. The spokes refer to the various local terminals surrounding the central distribution center, or hub. Goods are loaded onto a truck at the local terminals and taken to distribution centers. At the distribution centers, freight is delivered or sorted and consolidated into other shipments for further transportation. Full truckload shipping operates more directly with goods traveling from origin to destination with few stops in between.

Benefits of LTL Shipping

Less than truckload shipping is beneficial for small- to medium-sized businesses. Dividing trailer space allows for more affordable shipping rates. Many freight companies in California, like Flock Freight, offer a greater range of service options, including notifications and tracking, so you know exactly where your shipment is in California at any given time.

Flock Freight strives to exceed customers’ expectations and transform LTL freight into the affordable and efficient shipping method it can be. We use cutting edge technology to source and route your freight for increased savings and an estimated 15 percent reduced risk of damage compared to other LTL carriers in California.
