What is LTL and what does it mean for my business?
LTL shipping is a cost effective and efficient method for transporting a little amount of freight, where shippers are only charged for space their freight takes. LTL uses the dimensions and weight of the pallet(s) and determines the amount of space that it will take up. The prices will therefore be based on these factors. This further helps save money by saving costs on moving a small amount of freight on a full truckload. LTL is important in today’s market because everything is transported at the fraction of the cost. This benefits you the most as it helps you save on spending exuberant amounts and are provided with several shipment options.
What Qualifies as LTL?
LTL, short for less than load shipping shares a truck with multiple loads to reduce costs. It is ideal if you have one of the following conditions. Any freight that weighs 150 pounds or more. Freight that is larger than a parcel but smaller than a truckload, it will be too large to take to the post office or too small to use a whole truck. Freight that is palatalized or crated, to reduce costs and risks. LTL is a fraction of the cost of a full truckload, where shipping is normally determined using dimensional weight. They are usually picked up in the afternoon and delivered in the mornings, often shipped through local terminals and distribution centers. LTL only has one downside and that is the inconvenience of personalized shipping as transit times take longer than a full TL because of the shared freight. LTL trucking is the most popular and effective way of shipping giving shippers a bang for their buck.
