What is less than truckload freight shipping?

Less-than-truckload (LTL) freight shipping involves transporting smaller shipments that do not fill an entire truck. It consolidates multiple shipments from different customers, reducing costs compared to truckload and allowing flexibility for smaller quantity shipments.

What qualifies as LTL?

LTL shipments typically range from 150 to 20,000 pounds or occupy a space less than half a truckload. They consist of smaller shipments that don’t require a full trailer for transportation.

What is the difference between truckload and less-than-truckload freight shipping?

Truckload shipping fills an entire truck with a single shipment, ideal for large quantities or bulk items. Less-than-truckload (LTL) consolidates smaller shipments from multiple customers. Choose truckload for larger volumes and cost efficiency or LTL for smaller quantities and flexibility in shipping.

What is the difference between PTL and LTL?

PTL (Partial Truckload) shipping falls between LTL and Full Truckload. PTL utilizes a portion of the truck’s capacity for larger shipments that don’t require an entire truck but exceed LTL quantities. It offers less risk of damage compared to LTL and less cost compared to FTL.
