About Trucking Companies
Trucking companies are often defined by:
- the distances their trucks travel and
- the services they offer.
There are two broad trucking categories based upon distance:
- Long haul trucking companies – offer freight services that make it possible to transport goods long distances, typically across the country.
- Short haul trucking – involves the pickup and delivery of goods within a short distance.
Another way to define a trucking company is dependent on the capacity requirements of the truck’s trailer. The most common types of trucking companies are those that specialize in LTL or less-than-truckload freight services. This means they require less than the full capacity of the trailer. They pick up freight from several customers, haul it to a freight hub and then reload the truck with other LTL goods that are being transported to the same general location.
What to Expect
Trucking companies may also specialize in truck load freight services. Truckload shipping requires the transportation of freight that takes up an entire trailer. Truckload shipments usually go from origin to destination without stopping at a freight hub. This means there’s less handling of the freight.
