Truckload (TL) Shipping Advantages

The Advantages of FTL (Full Truckload) Shipping

Cost- effective for large shipments- providing savings over shipping several LTL shipment.

What advantages do you offer with FTL Shipping?

Not subject to being surrounded by other shippers freight- which can lower the risk of delays or damage. More direct route for shipments- meaning less stops and fewer handling occasions along the way.

Ships faster than LTL (Less Than Truckload) shipping due to not having to switch trailers and being subject to additional handling. Flexible schedules- trucks typically pick up freight within 24 hours, allowing customers more control over their supply chain.

What advantages do you offer with LTL Shipping from LTL Carriers?

Ability to track shipment in real time with GPS tracking technology- providing customers with greater visibility into their goods enroute. Find out more about The Shipping Emporium or how to

get a Fast and Free quote at www.shippingemp.com

Additional services such as liftgates or inside delivery can be provided upon request, usually only with the LTL Carriers. FTL Vans are not going to have a Lift gate, but a Box truck or 26 foot truck may a great choice for those seeking extra convenience or special needs.

FTL has less paperwork- since only one customer is being shipped at a time, there typically isn’t as much paperwork involved with FTL shipments compared to LTL shipping.

What does the Shipping Emporium offer that other Businesses do not?

The Shipping Emporium is here to help you navigate the complexities of shipping your freight with FTL and other truckload services. Contact us today for a fast and free quote! We look forward to hearing from you! Thank you for choosing The Shipping Emporium for all your logistics needs!​

Can you summarize this?

Overall, Full Truckload (FTL) shipping offers a cost-effective, flexible, and direct solution for customers looking for large shipment solutions. This type of service provides greater control over your supply chain and also allows for additional services such as inside delivery or liftgates if desired. With real-time GPS tracking technology now available, customers can be assured that their goods will arrive safely and in a timely manner. FTL shipping has become increasingly popular with companies due to the many benefits it offers over traditional LTL shipping.

If you’re looking for a reliable and efficient solution for large shipment needs, consider Full Truckload (FTL) shipping. It offers customers greater visibility into their goods enroute, cost savings over smaller shipments, and customizable services to meet all your shipping needs.

EXPERIENCED

We are experienced at handling pickups and deliveries to and from the federal and state governments and universities.

What is the Difference between a Full Truckload, a Partial Truckload and LTL shipment?

Trucking companies often use the terms “Full Truckload (FTL),” “Partial Truckload (PTL)” and “Less-Than-Truckload (LTL)” to describe how they move goods. FTL shipments fill up an entire truck with your cargo, PTL ships partial loads in shared trailers, and LTL puts multiple smaller orders onto one trailer for shipment. Depending on your needs, each of these have their own benefits, so let’s take a closer look.

What are LTL Shipments?

LTL Shipments are transported by some of the leading LTL Carriers out there, while the Full Truckloads and partial Truckloads are transported by the Independent Carriers. LTL Carriers that we hire include, but are not Limited to:

ABF Freight

Forward Air

Ward LTL

SAIA LTL

YRC Freight

A Duie Pyle

Southeastern LTL Freight

Central Freight

Frontline Freight

Clear Lane Carrier

Reddaway Freight Lines

New Penn Freight

Land and Air Express

Holland Transportation

Midwest Motors

Fedex Freight

Pitt Ohio

Land Express

What are Full Truckloads?

Full Truckloads are typically reserved for large or bulky orders that require an entire truck’s worth of space to transport, such as large pallets and containers. They offer direct shipping from point A to point B and can be customized depending on your product’s needs.

What are partial truckloads?

Partial Truckloads are a great way to ship smaller orders that don’t require an entire trailer. PTL services offer lower shipping rates than FTL, since they share space with other customers’ cargo in the same truck. This allows you to get more bang for your buck!

Tell me more

Finally, Less-Than Truckload shipments are best suited for small shipments that need to be delivered quickly. LTL services allow multiple shippers on one trailer, meaning that each customer only pays for their portion of the load rather than filling up the whole trailer themselves. A great option for those who want fast and affordable delivery!

Is the Trucking Industry always this way?

The Trucking Industry has its own little language, but hopefully this breakdown of the FTL, PTL and LTL services has given you a better understanding of the terminology used. Whichever type of shipment is best for your needs, you can be sure that your cargo will arrive safely and on-time!

Ship More Than 1 Pallet

Hello and Warm Regards from, Jane Barnett, The Shipping Emporium. We’d like to review your LTL (Less Than Truckload) an TL (truckload) Including Dry Van and Flatbed shipping needs, to see how we can both save your company, and offer you all of the Freight Carriers on the market.

Instead of shipping all your freight separately, try to consolidate your freight into as few shipments as possible. Your company should ship this way as this practice lowers the chance that your freight will be damaged or lost in transit.

Ask us about our 3rd party Cargo Insurance to help protect your shipment in transit.

1) Consolidated Freight takes up less space on the truck, and in LTL Shipping the less space that a shipment takes up, the lower your freight rate will be!

2) How will you know if you could save money with a Dedicated truck for a larger shipment OR save money with an LTL Carrier for a shipment that is over-length but if palatalized could go by LTL?

This is what The Shipping Emporium will handle for you. Our goal is to find YOU the best Carriers for your money. It will always be based upon what is shipping and the size of each pallet. That is how we can save you money, along with shopping our carrier network for the best rates.

3) For the space of the truck, when you consolidate your freight then your shipment will be denser. Denser shipments are less expensive to transport. Potentially save money on your LTL shipments with our help at The Shipping Emporium.

When you reach out, we will ask several questions to make sure that the right sized truck is sent and to ensure the best possible Freight Quote. Please be sure to include accurate Dimensions (length x width x height) for each pallet or handling unit.

A short-list of what my company, The Shipping Emporium can do for you:

BOL Creation and changes. Dispatch and scheduling.

Invoice Auditing and extra phone calls or inquiries to you and to the dispatcher if needed.

We can assist when you are sending unusual or haz-mat, including batteries.

Verify delivery appointments.

We sure hope that we can help your company or agency with your next Freight order.

PS Here are some more tips!

  • Book early. Heavy freight volumes are expected right after the holidays, so we recommend getting your shipments booked as soon as you can!
  • Some of our Quotes are now good for 7 days. That means, that the price is subject to change.
  • What is over-sized LTL? If you have a shipment weight that is 5000 to 10,000 pounds or more, or if your shipments Linear space is more than

15-20 linear feet, that is over-sized. It will depend on the commodity being shipped, please let us know your full shipment details.

If you have any questions or need a quote to meet your upcoming LTL or TL needs, please keep us posted, soon as you can!

Here is a Short-list of the services that we can offer your company:

FTL- Dedicated Truck (Dry Van and Flat Bed)

LTL – Less than truckload services with major carriers. (ALL USA and some between USA and Canada).

Cargo Insurance (to protect your goods).
