What Is Less-Than-Truckload Shipping?

Less-than-truckload shipping refers to the transportation of freight that can be easily divided up into units that each weigh 150 pounds or less. Each shipment will generally weigh somewhere between 150 and 20,000 pounds. Each carrier gathers freight from several shippers and places it into trailers for linehaul to a terminal. At the terminal, the freight will be sorted further and readied for additional linehauls. Drivers usually start the day by making deliveries and then return to make pickups when their trailers are empty.

Advantages of LTL Shipping

When you choose less-than-truckload shipping, you can engage a carrier for much less money than you would spend on full truckload freight. Although full truckload may have a shorter transit time, the decreased cost and possibility of accessory services often make this the more attractive option.
