Less Than Truckload Freight Services
LTL transport, or less-than-truckload, is ideal for smaller and more frequent shipments. If your load isn’t large enough to fill a 48- to 53-foot trailer, LTL shipping is a more economical option. You also get the benefits of decreasing costs and greater scheduling flexibility. LTL loads range between 151 and 20,000 pounds, and consist of multiple customers’ shipments. Anything over 20,000 pounds requires full truckload shipping to better take advantage of economies of scale.
