Truckload shipping

Truckload and partial truckload

Do you need truckload shipping?

Truckload shipping and partial truckload may be a cost-effective option if you have a lot of product to ship. Is it right for you? Let’s take a closer look.

What is truckload shipping?

Full truckload shipping, called TL or FTL for short, describes the hiring of a full trailer to ship your product. TL carriers are also known as asset-based carriers.

What is the difference between truckload shipping and LTL freight?

With LTL freight, shipments from multiple companies share space on a single trailer. You could think of it as paying only for the space you need, as opposed to paying for the full space of a trailer. This makes LTL freight rates lower than truckload, however, that doesn’t mean truckload shipping may not be the better option for you.

Why look for an asset-based or truckload carrier when we can do it for you?
