(FTL) FULL TRUCK LOAD
Full truckloads are typically freight shipments that can weigh up to 45,000 lbs. and up to 53ft of space. Full truckload shipments usually travel as the only shipment on a trailer and are delivered on the same trailer that picks them up. The proper selection of the right carriers on their best lanes can maximize hard and soft cost savings. Truckload can be complex and we are here to help you simplify your business.
(LTL) LESS THAN TRUCK LOAD
“LTL” is the acronym used in the freight shipping industry for the less-than-truckload mode. This shipping method can be used when freight weighs between 150 and 15,000 pounds, and does not require the usage of an entire trailer.
When shipping LTL, the shipper pays for the portion of a standard truck trailer their freight occupies, while other shippers and their shipments fill the unoccupied space. There are a number of benefits to shipping via LTL.
(V) Dry Van
Dry van trucking is often chosen for their convenience: In addition to being large and versatile, they protect cargo from bad weather, potential damage, and theft. They’re used for both full-truckload as well as LTL shipments—full truckloads can be scheduled with custom pick-up and delivery specifications, while LTL shipments can benefit from lower pricing thanks to freight consolidation.
No matter what type of products you’re shipping, as long as they aren’t required to be kept cold, dry van shipping can work for your transport needs.
