What Is Less-Than-Truckload (LTL)?

Less-than-truckload shipping, often known as less-than-load (LTL), is a service that transports relatively modest loads or amounts of freight. Many big, nationwide parcel carriers, as well as specialist logistics companies, provide less-than-truckload services.
These services can meet the shipping demands of a wide range of enterprises that need to transfer small quantities of products on a regular basis. Less-than-truckload shippers take use of economies of scale to reduce individual cargo freight costs.
