Less-than-truckload (LTL) Shipping

When the need to transport smaller quantities of freight occurs – typically from one to six pallets – less-than-truckload shipping services have evolved into an attractive option for companies looking to cut costs and achieve efficiencies. With lean inventories, sharp increases in e-commerce activity, and tightening capacities, demand for less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments have surged to all-time highs and expectations point towards continued growth.

As less-than-truckload services continue to gain prominence, cost benefits need to be weighed against time and risk considerations. Requiring multiple stops and transfers less than truckload shipments may result in longer transit times. There is also a high risk of damage to fragile cargo due to excess handling as shipments are transloaded between trailers at various terminals along the route.

Utilizing the services of an LTL trucking company allows clients – absent of a professional transportation fleet to support their business – to transport freight at a substantially lower price when compared to commissioning an entire trailer. Pooling multiple shipments from multiple customers into a single trailer allows LTL trucking companies the flexibility to reduce fees. Consider all variables when determining whether LTL freight transport is a viable shipping solution for your business.

LTL TRUCKING SERVICES

LTL shipping companies are engaged when transporting cargo larger than that typically handled by the leading delivery services (FedEx and UPS). LTL loads are typically between 150lbs to just under 20,000lbs – or what would normally be considered a full truckload (FTL). As many shippers move their inventories from just-in-time to just-in-case – the result of lessons learned during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic – our flexible less-than-truckload services and dedicated warehouse allows us to consolidate smaller and more frequent loads to help reduce costs.
