LTL / TL Freight
Full Service LTL Transportation
Less than truckload (LTL) shipping is the transportation of relatively small freight. The alternatives to LTL carriers are
parcel carriers or full truckload carriers. Parcel carriers usually handle small packages and freight that can be broken down in to units less than
150 pounds (68 kg). Full truckload carriers move freight that is loaded into a semi-trailer. Semi trailers are typically between 26 and 53 feet
(7.92 and 16.15 m) and therefore require a substantial amount of freight to make such transportation economical.
