Less Than Truckload
LTL shipping stands for “Less Than Truckload”. It means that the shipment will not take up an entire truck. These types of shipments typically weigh between 100 and 10,000 pounds.
With an LTL shipment, you only pay for the space in the truck that you need. If your shipment only takes up one-third of the truck space, you only pay for one-third of the truck. The rest of the truck will then be filled with other small shipments from other companies. This makes LTL freight shipping a great budget friendly choice for small businesses not requiring large quantity shipments.
LTL freight shipments will often take a bit longer to reach their destinations. This is due to the multiple shipments on board creating frequent stops. If time is of the essence, you may want to consider Full Truckload (FTL) shipping.
