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.
