LTL vs. FTL Freight: What’s the difference?
LTL Shipping: Sometimes Less Really Is More
LTL shipping helps small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) minimize their freight costs and improve efficiencies by combining their shipments, with each shipper paying only for the portion of the truck they use. This allows shippers with lower freight volume to get their product on the road right away, without paying extra for unused truck space.
You may want to consider LTL shipping if your cargo typically:
- Does not fill an entire freight truck
- Weighs more than 150 pounds
- Consists of crates, oversized packages or fewer than six pallets
In Unishippers’ Guide to LTL Shipping, we outline some of the reasons why SMBs choose LTL freight for their business shipping. Download our tip sheet to learn the many benefits of LTL shipping, including:
- Reduced freight rates
- Extra space in your warehouse
- Easy shipment tracking
