LTL refers to “Less-than-Truck Load”, a mode of freight transport that offers flexible options when the amount of cargo needing to be moved does not fill a full truck load (FTL) but is too large or heavy for parcel shipping. LTL is commonly used where the customer has small shipments to and from multiple origins and/or destinations that need to be shipped to meet lead time requirement. It supports just-in-time inventory management and are ideal for when the cost-benefit of transporting the goods in smaller amounts outweigh the associated cost of storing, managing or waiting for a full truck load.
