What is LTL?
Simply put, LTL freight, or less than truckload freight is a shipment that shares a truck with other shipments. The freight is moved on and off various trucks on the way to its final destination. Although a direct route isn’t always taken, the cost of these shipment is very economical compared to an exclusive-use truck. A real world example: If you are using your local public bus system to get to work, you may have to change bus lines once or twice to get to your final destination. Although the most direct route is not used, you still arrive safely to work — it just may take a little bit more time. This is exactly how LTL freight works. It may take some more time to deliver, and it will have to ‘sit’ next to another customer’s freight, but the shipment will arrive safely and for a fraction of the cost of, say, 'driving your own car.'
