FTL shipping stands for full truckload, meaning that the shipment will take up an entire truck by itself. FTL shipments are typically used when there are ten or more palettes that need to ship. It’s generally pretty 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.
FTL shipments stay on the same truck the entire time and aren’t 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. 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. If you have a large shipment that’s delicate in nature and needs to arrive quickly, FTL is your best bet. If your shipment is small, sturdy, and not in a time crunch, LTL will fit your needs.
Partial truckload is a freight mode for large shipments that may not require the use of a full truckload trailer. Partial truckload falls between LTL and full truckload, typically involving shipments over 5,000 pounds or 6 or more pallets.
Less than truckload shipping or less than load (LTL) is the transportation of relatively small freight. The alternatives to LTL carriers are parcel carriers or full truckload carriers. Parcel carriers usually handle small packages and freight that can be broken down into units less than 150 pounds (68 kg).
Yes, all carriers are fully insured to meet all State and Federal requirements. The transport driver will thoroughly inspect the vehicle at pick up and delivery. When your vehicle is delivered, it is your responsibility to inspect for any damage that may have occurred during transport. Document any damage on the Bill of Lading and obtain the driver’s signature. The insurance company will not process claims if damages are not documented at the time of delivery.
