Differences between Full Truck Load Freight vs Less Than Truck Load Freight?
The primary difference between LTL shipping and FTL shipping is the amount of freight being shipped.
LTL freight is typically used for smaller shipments that do not require a full truck to transport. This type of shipping service allows multiple smaller shipments from different customers to be consolidated into one larger shipment. Because LTL freight allows for multiple smaller shipments to be consolidated into one larger shipment, it is often a more cost-effective option than FTL freight. Additionally, LTL freight offers greater flexibility for businesses that do not require a full truckload of goods to be shipped.
