Consolidation of freight involves the pairing of shipments that fill the space of a dry van trailer or freight truck and are being moved generally in the same direction. In this way, freight consolidation or less than truckload shipping saves shippers money and allows carriers to optimize their fleet. The Less than Truckload shipping or LTL freight mode of transportation consolidates shipments from several different shippers and transports the entire load to terminals where they are routed to different lanes and re-consolidated back onto a different truck, or continue moving to the same city or state.
