What is LTL Freight?
LTL Freight stands for Less-than-Load or Less-than-Truckload shipping. As the name implies, LTL freight is used to transport goods that don’t require an entire transport truck. LTL shipping is typically used by small businesses for sending freight or cargo weighing between 150 – 15,000 pounds.
When using LTL shipping, you only pay for a portion of a truck for which your freight occupies, while other shippers pay for their portion of the truck to fill it with their freight. This makes freight affordable to ship, but does take a little longer than FTL (full-truckload) because partial truckloads require multiple stops.
If you are a small to medium sized business looking for shipping solutions on packages that weigh more than 150 pounds, you should consider LTL freight shipping.
