Does your freight weigh between 150 and 15,000 lbs? If your cargo is small or doesn’t require the use of an entire trailer, less than truckload freight shipping (LTL) could be the option for you.
When you choose LTL shipping, you only pay for a portion of the standard truck trailer that your cargo takes up. Other shippers and their freight comprise the other space on the trailer.
It is easy to confuse LTL shipping with partial truckloads. Shipments that are larger than LTL but less than a full truck trailer are considered partial truckload. Basically, the main differences between partial truckloads and LTL shipments come down to pricing, classing, transit time, and handling.
At PDQ America, we can meet your LTL shipping needs both with our own trucks or by brokering out the load. Complete this form to receive an LTL quote from our team.
