If your freight is too large to be considered a parcel shipment but doesn’t need a semi-truck all to itself, it’s probably an LTL shipment. LTL freight companies combine multiple LTL shipments to create a single truck comprised of different LTL loads. This maximizes the efficiency of the truck and cuts back on costs.
LTL shipping might be the right option for you if your freight weighs over 150 lbs. but less than 15,000 lbs. and you want to lower your overall transportation costs.
Advantages of LTL Freight Shipping
When you ship LTL you only pay for the portion of the trailer your freight takes up, as opposed to the full trailer. This is a cost-saving and efficient option for many companies.
You can also get additional services when you ship LTL which include lift gate, limited access capabilities, expedited shipping options and indoor delivery and/or pickup.
