Frequently Asked Questions about Less Than Truckload
What are the basic differences in LTL shipments versus other modes of transport?
Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipments are those usually weighing more than 100 pounds. They are too heavy to be transported by a small parcel carrier, but not large enough to require a full truckload. LTL shipping consolidates freight shipments and provides an economical way to ship freight.
How does pricing for LTL freight compare with truckload (TL) shipping?
LTL pricing is based on the space your freight occupies on the truck, its weight, its freight class and lane (pickup and delivery destinations). LTL is generally an economical alternative because the shipper only pays for the space their shipment occupies. A sales representative can provide you with a reliable shipping quote, or you can request an online quote for your shipment.
