(1) Full load freight Broker (2) LTL loads (Less than truckload) (3) Single loads (4) Consolidated loads (5) Ground Cargo
FTL stands for full truckload, which would indicate that the shipment will take up an entire truck. FTL shipments are used when there are ten or more palettes that need to be ship.
FTL shipments stay on the truck for the entire time and will not be transferred during transport, so there is significantly less risk of damage. This method of transportation is also much quicker than LTL, since only one shipment is on board and there won’t be multiple stops along the way.
It’s generally easy to know when your shipment needs to be shipped via FTL, but sometimes smaller shipments can also benefit from FTL freight shipping. If your shipment is high-risk, FTL may be the better option.
If you have a large shipment that’s delicate in nature and needs to arrive quickly, FTL is your best bet. New
When deciding on the most appropriate type of shipment for your freight, always keep in mind the size of your shipment, your budget, how fragile the freight is, and how quickly you need your shipment to reach its destination.
