What is LTL Service?

LTL service stands for Less Than Truckload service. It is commonly used for smaller shipments that don't require a full truckload.

How does LTL service work?

LTL vehicles pick up and deliver multiple smaller shipments to fill up a truck, making it a cost-effective option.

How does LTL shipment duration compare to FTL?

LTL shipments take longer to reach their destinations compared to Full Truckload (FTL) shipments.

How are LTL shipments transported?

LTL carriers transport freight from one trucking terminal to another while en route to the final destination.

Can you explain the routing process for LTL shipments?

For instance, if a consignment is going from LA to New York, it may be transferred to terminals in Phoenix, Dallas, and so on until it reaches the New York terminal before final delivery.

Why is LTL shipping more cost-effective?

Due to the longer travel time and shared space, shipping via LTL is generally less expensive than using a full truckload.
