Frequently Asked Questions About FTL and LTL Freight

FTL stands for full truckload. It refers to a shipment that only contains one shipper’s load. In other words, FTL is a dedicated trucking service for a single shipper. Read more about full truckload.

LTL stands for less-than-truckload. It refers to a method of moving freight over the road in which a truck carries loads belonging to multiple shippers and, therefore, makes multiple stops. Read more about less than truckload.

When you’re booking full truckload services, the truck moving the load will only carry your load and no one else’s. When utilizing LTL trucking, your shipment will travel with other shippers’ loads in the same truck. The truck will make multiple stops to drop each load at its destination.

If your shipment is relatively small in size, LTL freight will be the most cost-effective choice. However, because the truck will make multiple stops, it can be slower than full truckload service.

We’ve seen customers across every vertical use full truckload service when: 1) they have a load large enough to take up an entire truck or 2) when they need dedicated service to move their load quickly.

Federal limits restrict a gross vehicle weight (which includes the tractor, trailer, and the load) to 80,000 pounds, with a 20,000-pound weight limit on a single axle and 34,000 pounds on a tandem axle group. Loads in excess of these limits require special permits.

Ultimately, this usually means the maximum weight limit for an FTL load is usually around 42,000-45,000 pounds.

You can ship as many as 24-26 pallets in an FTL shipment. If you’re looking for assistance in making your full truckload shipments as cost effective as possible, reach out to one of our experts. We’ll connect you with an efficient solution that makes the most of each truckload you send.

It’s usually most efficient to ship your freight LTL when you’re moving as many as six pallets. However, to know for sure, reach out to one of our experts. We’ll take into account the freight you’re shipping, your preferred timeline, and your budget, and we’ll put together the right solution.

While LTL shipping may be more expensive on a per-unit basis, it’s an economical choice when you don’t have a full load. In other words, the absolute cost of an LTL shipment is lower, even though the per-unit cost may be higher. If you’re looking for ways to reduce your freight bills, our experts would be happy to take a holistic look at your transportation needs and craft a solution.

Drayage involves moving freight over limited distances, often from a port to a warehouse or from one mode of transportation to another (seaport to rail spur, for example). In contrast, over-the-road freight transportation (FTL or LTL) can involve much longer distances and utilizes a variety of equipment.
