Understanding the differences and optimal applications of Full Truckload (FTL) and Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping can transform your logistics from a cost center into a competitive edge. Here’s how we break it down and optimize your options, keeping your business rolling smoothly and efficiently.

FTL vs. LTL: Choosing Your Path

Cost and Space Efficiency

LTL shines when you’re moving a few pallets, offering significant savings by paying only for the space you use. FTL, while ideal for larger shipments, ensures your goods move directly to their destination, providing predictability and security.

Transit Times

If speed and predictability are your priorities, FTL’s direct routes offer firm delivery times. LTL, with its multiple stops, might test your flexibility but excels in cost efficiency for smaller shipments.

Handling & Risk

FTL gets your products from A to B with minimal handling, ideal for fragile or high-value goods. LTL, with its more hands-on journey, demands sturdy packaging and smart packing to mitigate the increased handling risk.

Optimizing Your Shipping Strategy

When to Choose FTL

Opt for FTL when shipping more than six pallets, dealing with fragile items, or when you need reliable, firm delivery dates. FTL cuts down on handling and expedites your shipment’s journey.

Leveraging LTL for Savings

LTL is your go-to for smaller shipments (typically less than six pallets) or when your delivery schedule allows for flexibility. It’s a cost-effective way to tap into shared transportation resources without compromising service quality.
