LTL or Less than Truckload Carriers are trucking companies that move products from multiple customers on one truck. By sharing space on the truck, all shippers save money. LTL carriers have vehicles that collect shipments from a local area. The individual shipments are then loaded with other customers' shipments. These outbound trucks are destined for similar hub locations. Once a truck reaches its destination regional terminal, the payload is sorted. Each shipment may be handled several times through different hubs. This process is completed when the shipment reaches it finals destination. A local delivery truck driver familiar with the route makes the final drop.
