ltl shipping comparison

When you think of easy, affordable trucking transportation, think Global Freight Services. We’re a shipping powerhouse with countless years of experience and a drive to finish every shipping job on budget and on-time. Our full truck load (FTL) shipping services can help you take care of any high-capacity, high-volume shipping that needs to be done right the first time.

An FTL shipping job is a shipment that requires the entire available space of a truck. The common less than truckload (LTL) solution splits the available truck space between multiple products and vendors, and Global Freight Services offers both options. If you are seeking transportation through this common trucking solution, your shipment will require expertise for:

  • Especially valuable cargo
  • Large-volume shipping
  • Unbalanced loads
  • Freight of exceptional mass

FTL services are ideal for businesses looking to move high value or heavy haul items across long distances, especially in bulk. Because of the nature of FTL logistics, our trucks will ship your goods exclusively when you require transport. We can employ specialized equipment such as extra-long flatbeds, removable goose-neck (RGN) trailers, and tandem drivers to make sure we have the capacity and the know-how to get your goods from point A to point B in one piece.

Benefits for FTL Trucking:

FTL transport combines extremely specialized equipment built to carry heavy and massive cargo with specialists in logistical support for shipments of unusual size and scope.

  • The Top Choice for Large Shipments: Keep available space exclusive to you and your business with our trucking services. Our team knows what permits you’ll need and what equipment you’ll require to move your extraordinarily large or heavy load to where it needs to go in as little time as possible.
  • Perfect for High-Risk & Fragile Shipments: Because of the time and care put into each shipment and the unique machinery required for FTL, your goods are safer across longer distances than if they were transported via a standard LTL shipment.
  • Shipment Stays in One Truck from Point A to Point B: There’s no switching and no repacking, your load moves from the source all the way to the destination without changing hands or housing. Once your shipment is fully packed, it won’t move until it’s unpacked.
  • Faster than LTL: Because there’s no switching hands and preparation, your freight moves incredibly fast to its destination. Fast, reliable shipments are great for answering to unusually high demand when shipping is down to the wire.

We are Experts in Trucking Solutions:

Among our countless shipments for which we’ve taken care of FTL logistics, the team at Global Freight Services remembers the trials of moving overhead gantry cranes from Hazel Crest, IL to New York. The cranes were of an unusual size and heft, and their weight was distributed across a long-thin single piece that required careful calculation and consideration to move to the port at New York in time to ship all the way to India.
