Are LTL Transportation Services
Right For Your Freight?
The economy of LTL transportation can be a real advantage to your business and your bottom line. Less-than-truckload (LTL) transport is ideal for smaller and more frequent shipments. If your load isn’t large enough to fill a 48 to the 53-foot trailer, an LTL freight service is a more economical option. You also get the benefits of decreasing costs and increasing scheduling flexibility.
LTL service loads range between 151 and 20,000 pounds and consist of multiple shipments from multiple customers. Anything over 20,000 pounds requires full truckload shipping to better take advantage of economies of scale.Our experienced team understands your business objectives and delivers shipments on time.
