ltl shipping comparison

A shipment is considered to be LTL when it does not fill a standard 48ft or 53ft trailer. This method of shipping is the ideal solution if you’re running an e-commerce business or you just need to get smaller shipments to multiple destinations. LTL freight typically ranges from 100 pounds up to 5,000 pounds, though some can get up to 10,000 pounds, depending on the density of the shipment. Rates are calculated by weight, freight lass and distance. LTL shipping is the ideal solution if you’re running an e-commerce business in the U.S., or if you frequently ship freight that is under a full truckload.

LTL has become more and more popular over the years with the rise of ecommerce and just-in-time inventory. In order to remain competitive, businesses need to ship products around the country and around the world at the click of a mouse. That’s why both LTC and LTL are so important, and with our many years of experience in the industry, Global Freight is able to skillfully master all of your shipping logistics.

Global Freight provides efficient LTL freight transport that gets your smaller shipments where they need to go in a hurry through our extensive domestic trucking network. By safely consolidating your freight with other shipments, you save time and money.

Benefits of LTL Shipping:

  • Cost-Effective: If you aren’t shipping enough freight to constitute a full truckload, or if you need to make multiple deliveries, LTL is much more cost-effective. It’s also much more cost-effective than parcel shipping. By safely consolidating your freight with other freight, you aren’t paying for the shipment of air.
  • Pick-up & Delivery Assistance: Pick-up and delivery assistance is especially helpful when it comes to trucking to multiple destinations. Our additional service options like inside delivery, sorting and segregating, lift gate service and pallet jacks make shipping hassle-free for you and your clients.
  • Flexibility: Deliver a variety of small and diverse shipments to scattered destinations around the country.
  • Speed: In the US, trucking is one of the most efficient means of shipping freight. Also, with LTL, you don’t have to wait until a shipment is large enough to fill a truck before you can start delivering to your clients. Global Freight handles all the logistics for you and gets your product to its final destination in the most efficient way possible.
