FTL vs FlockDirect® Shared Truckload (STL)
FTL is a great choice when:
- You have enough freight to fill an entire 53' truck
- You are okay with shifting delivery dates in order to fill the truck
- You require "exclusive use" of the trailer
FlockDirect® is better when:
- You have between 4 pallets and 24 pallets, but you want truckload service
- You are looking to minimize delays by shipping goods as soon as they are ready
- You want to save money and reduce your carbon emissions
A full truckload typically refers to a shipment that occupies the entire capacity of a truck, whether it is in terms of weight or volume. It can vary based on the specific truck size and regulations.
The number of pallets in a full truckload can vary depending on factors like pallet size, weight, and truck capacity. On average, a full truckload can accommodate around 26 to 30 standard-sized pallets.
LTL (Less-than-truckload) is for smaller shipments combined onto one truck. FTL (Full Truckload) is dedicated to a single large shipment. TL (Truckload) is a broader term encompassing both LTL and FTL shipments.
The cost of shipping a full truckload depends on factors like distance, weight, fuel prices, and additional services. It’s best to request quotes from freight service providers, like Flock, or use online calculators to get estimated pricing based on your specific shipping requirements.
