Meet Tough Delivery Demands with Full Truckload (FTL) Shipping
Speed up transit time with secure, full truckload shipments managed by leading FTL freight industry experts
What is FTL freight?
When your cargo occupies an entire truck, you need solutions that adapt to your cargo and distribution requirements. Full truckload (FTL) is an efficient shipping method, delivering trailer loads of freight directly to your destination.
While full truckload works well with many types of cargo, it's a popular choice for shippers moving expensive, perishable or otherwise sensitive goods (think electronics, food, flowers or medicine).
That's because with FTL you minimize disruptions, handling and transit time, as you're not coordinating with other shippers and/or consolidation hubs like you would with a less-than-truckload (LTL) option.
What are the advantages of full truckload (FTL) shipping?
As mentioned above, one of FTL shipping's greatest benefits is faster transit times, in addition to less reduced risk of shipment damage and even lower rates in some situations.
FTL shipping also streamlines the distribution process, especially compared to less than truckload shipping, which is a more time-consuming option combining multiple shipments in one trailer.
