LTL Freight: The Basics

LTL (Less than Truckload) shipping is a transportation method used for sending smaller freight loads that don't require the space of an entire truck. Instead of booking an entire truck, shippers share space with others, consolidating their shipments with goods from multiple customers in one truck. This system is cost-effective for businesses shipping smaller volumes, as they only pay for the space their cargo occupies. LTL offers frequent and flexible pickup and delivery schedules, tracking capabilities, and the ability to ship to residential or remote areas.
