Reply To: Exactly what distinguishes a truck load from an LTL?

    Robert John

    One shipping trailer is contracted to one shipper, client, or consignee when a truckload (also known as full truckload shipping, or FTL) is involved. FTL cargo usually travels from place A to place B. A mixed trailer known as a less-than-truckload (LTL) is one that has goods from two or more shippers, clients, or consignees.
