Less than load (LTL) freight is the transportation of products or goods that does not require a full truckload due to the smaller nature of the parcel. Therefore, there are typically many separate shipments being transported on one truck. LTL shipments are usually arranged on pallets and can range anywhere from 150 pounds to 10,000 pounds.

LTL carriers specialize in optimizing their loads; moving more goods for more shippers in an efficient manner. Shippers like LTL shipping because it affords them flexibility, cost effectiveness, and environmental friendliness. However, LTL shipping can be rather complex.

In this post we will explore the benefits, challenges, and best practices of LTL freight shipping. But, before we jump into these, let’s look at how LTL freight actually works.
