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 transported.
Generally, the decision of whether your shipment needs to be shipped via FTL is dependent on your shipment size (10 skids or more) or being a high-risk shipment. If a shipment is of higher risk, trailer exclusivity is always suggested.
FTL shipments stay on the same truck the entire time and are normally sealed for protection and significantly reduces the risk of damage.
Benefits of FTL shipping.
Direct Delivery: When booking an LTL shipment, you only pay for the portion of the trailer used. The remainder of the cost will be divided amongst the other trailer occupants.
Exclusivity: companies that may have a more limited shipping need can benefit from the cost savings of our LTL services.
Variety of Shipments: Consolidating shipments is similar to carpooling as in it reduces the additional trucks and the extra fuel emissions.
