LESS THAN TRUCKLOAD
What is Less than Truckload (LTL) Shipping?
Less than truckload (LTL) freight shipping is the method of transporting freight that does not require a full trailer to ship from one location to its destination. The shipper pays for the portion their freight occupies, which increases overall efficiency of an individual shipment. Traditionally, LTL is a great way to move shipments weighing more than 150 pounds but is now also a great alternative for shipments that may be too large for UPS or FedEx Ground.
