      Less than truckload shipping (LTL shipping) refers to the transportation of relatively small freight. LTL freight carriers usually handle small shipments of freight from multiple businesses, with all of the freight sharing space on a semi-trailer In contrast to LTL shipping, FTL is ideal for larger shipments whereby an entire freight load from one business occupies the space on a semi-trailer destined for one client

      Shipping freight may seem like a very complex process due to the number of options available. It’s important to understand the differences between Full Truckload (FTL) shipping and Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping because they are two of the most commonly used transportation options within North America. Shippers must consider size, speed, and price when deciding between a FTL versus LTL. Here are the main differences between FTL and LTL shipments to help you decide which shipping method works best for you.

      Full Truckload:
      The shipper loads product at origin, pops a seal on the trailer and the driver takes the product straight to the destination for delivery.

      LTL:
      Throughout the course of any LTL shipment, you can expect your product to be loaded and unloaded in-and-out of trailers and warehouses several times before it reaches the final destination.

      The names Full Truckload and Less Than Truckload are self-explanatory and mean exactly what they say. LTL shipments are smaller shipments typically ranging from 100 to 5,000 pounds. These smaller shipments will not fill an entire truck, leaving space for other small shipments. FTL shipments fill most to all of an entire truck and tend to be much larger, often weighing 20,000 pounds or more.

      FTL- Full truckload or FTL shipping is a perfect option for large shipments or large volumes of goods that take up the complete truck. you can ship more than 12 pallets at a time and have flexibility with shipping and delivery time.on the other hand, LTL- Less than truckload or less than load is when one trailer carries freight from multiple shippers rather than from an individual company. you can ship less than 12 pallets at a time.
