Less-Than-Truckload (LTL)

In the context of logistics, LTL refers to trucking companies that consolidate and transport smaller (less than truckload) shipments of freight by utilizing a network of terminals and relay points. This type of shipping is often used for shipments that are too large for parcel carriers but do not require a full truckload.

  • LTL can be more expensive than shipping via parcel carrier, but it is typically faster and offers more flexibility in terms of delivery times and routing.
  • In addition, LTL providers often offer value-added services such as tracking, insurance, and storage that can make shipping larger shipments more convenient and cost-effective.

If you are shipping large items or need your shipment to arrive quickly, Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) shipping may be the best option for you. LTL carriers offer a number of advantages over parcel carriers, including:

  • faster delivery times,
  • more flexible routing,
  • and value-added services such as tracking and insurance.

LTL shipping is typically more expensive than shipping via parcel carrier, but it is often worth the extra cost for larger or time-sensitive shipments.
