Full Trailer Load
Faster Transit Times: FTL shipments typically reach their destinations faster than Less Than Truck Load (LTL) shipments because there are no stops to pick up or deliver goods for other customers along the way.
Reduced Handling: Since the goods belong to a single shipper, there is minimal handling of the freight. This reduces the risk of damage during transit.
Security: FTL shipments are generally more secure because the trailer is sealed at the point of origin and remains sealed until it reaches the destination. This reduces the risk of theft or tampering.
Flexibility: The shipper has control over the entire truck, allowing for more flexibility in scheduling pick-up and delivery times.
Cost-Effective for Large Shipments: For businesses that have a large volume of goods to transport, FTL can be more cost-effective compared to shipping multiple smaller LTL shipments.
Specialized Cargo: FTL is often used for transporting specialized or high-value cargo that requires dedicated space and attention.
Less Than Trailer Load
LTL shipping is a cost-effective and efficient way to transport smaller quantities of goods while sharing transportation costs with other shippers. Here are some key points about LTL shipping:
Cost Efficiency: LTL shipping can be cost-effective for businesses with smaller shipments because they only pay for the space they use in the truck.
Consolidation: LTL carriers consolidate shipments from multiple shippers, making it possible for several customers to share the same truck space.
Freight Class: LTL shipments are categorized based on their freight class, which is determined by factors like weight, dimensions, density, and the type of product being shipped. This classification affects pricing.
Pricing Structure: LTL rates are usually determined by the weight and dimensions of the shipment, as well as the distance it needs to travel.
Transit Time: LTL shipments might have longer transit times compared to full truckload (FTL) shipments since the carrier may make multiple stops to deliver various customers' goods.
