What Is LTL Transportation?
The transportation of LTL freight involves the shipment of goods from numerous customers consolidated into one trailer. LTL transportation cargo is larger than parcel (150 lbs), but less than a full truckload. When you choose LTL transportation for your freight, you pay for the space you occupy in the trailer, rather than the whole truck.
Whether you have hundreds of LTL shipments going out a month or you just ship a few pallets a week, FreightCenter can help with your LTL transportation needs. You’ll have access to our nationwide network of contracted LTL carriers. Our team of freight experts is trained to know which carriers and services are best for your freight.
