LTL Freight

Your Global Freight Forwarding Solution!

Our Less Than Truckload Services

Do you have small or lightweight items to ship? Use our Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping service and pay for only the space you need, not for the whole truck.

What is Less Than Truckload?

Less than truckload (LTL) freight shipment is the transfer of small items that don’t require the usage of a full truck trailer. LTL shipping combines loads from many carriers onto a single trailer, so you only pay for the space you need and use. The entire transportation cost is shared between all shippers that transport freight in the same trailer.

An LTL cargo typically weighs between 150 to 20,000 pounds. It consists of one to six pallets, crates, big boxes, or other shipping items that don’t fill a carrier’s vehicle.

LTL Benefits

People often choose LTL shipping for various reasons. While some want to minimize shipping costs, others may need to cut down shipping times. Let’s review the main benefits of opting for an LTL shipping solution.

Cut Down On Costs

You won’t need to pay the full truckload (FTL) price for a shipment that doesn’t require a full truck. When you choose LTL shipping, you’ll share the cost with other businesses; therefore, it’s more cost-efficient.

Send Smaller Shipments

When you opt for LTL shipping, you don’t have to wait until you have enough load to fill the whole truck.

Enables Quick Deliveries

Since you don’t have to fill the whole truck, LTL can also reduce shipping times. You can book your load immediately and get them moving as soon as possible, rather than waiting for sufficient orders in the area to optimize your load or sending a truck that’s almost empty.

Enables Easy Tracking

Any company must be aware of what is happening with their freight at all times. And the LTL solution offers clear visibility to shipment locations. This means that you and your clients can keep an eye on the shipments at all times using cutting-edge tracking tools.

When you operate with Haulers Logistics, you can easily monitor the current status and position of your freight from any place, even with your mobile device. LTL shipping, when combined with contemporary technologies, may be just as, if not more, efficient than FTL shipping.

It’s Eco-Friendly

LTL is one of the most environmentally-friendly transportation solutions. It helps transportation businesses be significantly greener by reducing the number of trucks and the amount of fuel required for shipping.

How to Ship LTL Freight

Step 1: Gather Shipment Information

Before you dive into the LTL shipping process, it’s important to collect all the necessary information about your freight.

Multiple factors determine how your freight will be transported, such as:

  • Size
  • Dimensions
  • Weight
  • Quantity
  • Freight Class

Note that the freight class needs to be defined correctly when shipping LTL.

Step 2: Pack Properly

Packaging is also a major consideration when shipping cargo with LTL. To avoid freight damage during transportation, it’s important to secure and pack your freight properly. The freight in LTL shipping is usually stacked onto pallets.

Step 3: Choose a Freight Shipping Company

The final step in the LTL shipping process is choosing a good freight shipping company or freight carrier.

As an expert team of freight brokers, Haulers Logistics will connect you with a reliable carrier.

What is LTL Freight Class?

National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) developed a Freight Classifications system to classify LTL freight.

Your LTL freight shipment cost highly depends on this factor. If you select the wrong freight class, you may lose money, time, resources, and be forced to delay shipments. That being said, it’s crucial to classify your shipment correctly.

What Factors Determine LTL Freight Class?

Several factors determine LTL freight class, such as:

  • Dimensions
    • Weight
    • Packaging
    • Density
    • Value
    • Handling
    • Stow-Ability
    • Liability
