What Are Motor Freight Services
Motor freight refers to the transportation of freight shipments using a truck, as opposed to rail, air or ocean.Truck freight is separated into two categories: less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload.
As the name suggests, LTL freight takes up less than a full truck trailer. LTL shipments usually weigh between 100 – 20,000 pounds.
LTL shipping takes organized logistics. Shipments from different origins and destinations are consolidated onto one freight truck. Then they’re taken to a freight terminal. At the terminal they’re unloaded and reloaded onto a truck with other shipments going to the same destination.
There are many LTL services available. It’s important you quote and your shipment with the right services. If not, you could risk costly billing adjustments to your motor freight rate.
