FTL (Full Truckload)Services
FTL (Full Truckload) – Truckload is a mode of freight for larger shipments that usually occupy the full capacity of a 48’ or 53’ trailer. A few LTL carriers define truckload freight as any one shipment that is 750 cubic feet or larger. Shipments that are 750 cubic feet or more, but do not fill the full capacity of a trailer, are sometimes referred to as volume LTL shipments as well. There are primarily three types of truckload shipments. They are dry van, flatbed, and refrigerated also known as reefer. An exclusive use of a trailer is when a shipment, no matter the size, is placed on a trailer and transported to destination without other freight. This service is normally requested when a shipment is time-sensitive, uncrated, or is prone to damage. Full truckload shipments are more cost effective than LTL, as the freight charges are normally based on miles driven versus hundredweight. It is normally faster than LTL, as it moves directly to a consignee without being off loaded and reloaded at a terminal or breakbulk facility. The frequency of damage with truckload freight is much less than LTL due to less handling.
