Less than Truckload Freight Shipping [LTL]

ArgonDigital - enterprise automation experts

A specialized shipping method that’s commonly used in B2B scenarios where products being sold are too large for parcel shipping but not big enough to require an entire truck to haul the items. LTL providers effectively rent out leftover space on trucks to merchants in order to be as efficient as possible in terms of the number of trucks being used to ship goods. Product dimensions are one factor in determining if items should be shipped using parcel, LTL or truckload freight. Another consideration is weight. While requirements vary between LTL providers, typical weight ranges suitable for LTL are 150 to 15,000 pounds (68 to 6,800 kg).
