Full Truck Load (FTL)
Full truckload shipping is the movement of at least the amount of freight necessary to fill an entire truck or container. LOL is a logistics company that contracts an entire trailer-load to a single customer. This is as opposed to a less than truckload (LTL) company that generally mixes freight from several customers in each load. An advantage FTL carriers have over LTL carriers is that the freight is never handled en route, whereas LTL shipments are unloaded and reloaded as necessary. FTL carriers typically transport a semi-trailer full of freight directly from the shipper to the consignee. After the trailer is loaded the driver collects the required paperwork (i.e. bill of lading, invoice, and customs paperwork) and then departs with a fully-loaded trailer. I n most cases the driver proceeds directly to the consignee and delivers the freight. Occasionally, a driver will transfer the trailer to another driver who will drive the freight the rest of the way. FTL transit times are normally constrained by the driver’s availability according to hours of service regulations. FTL drivers transport freight at an average rate of 47 miles per hour.
Less than Truck Load ( LTL)
Less than truckload shipping is the transportation of relatively small freight. The alternatives to LTL carriers are parcel carriers or full truckload carriers. Parcel carriers usually handle small packages and freight that can be broken down into units less than. Full truckload carriers move freight that is loaded into a semi-trailer. Semi trailers are typically between and require a substantial amount of freight to make such transportation economical.
