Q: What are the differences between FTL Services and LTL Services?
A: FTL stands for Full Truckload. A shipment that is over 10,000 lbs. or takes up an entire truck by itself is considered Full Truckload. One of the main characteristic of an FTL Services is that it will take your shipment on a long haul, making one trip from point A to Point B without transferring the cargo. LTL stands for Less Than Truckload. If you have 200 pounds of freight to transport, you’ve got an LTL shipment. It takes just a section of the truck and the cargo is safely consolidated with other shipments that may be picked up and distributed in the same area.
