Everyday across America semi trucks with flatbed trailers, dry van trailers, and any other of the numerous types freight and equipment transporting specialized trailers travel highways, interstates, city streets and rural roads to deliver millions of pounds of freight daily. These trucks keep the economy moving, they keep businesses with the supplies and equipment they need to operate, they also keep products from businesses moving as they sell locally and nationwide. While large multi-million dollars companies or businesses may move mass amounts of freight, enough to fill entire trailers or multiple trailers for full truckload services, some businesses may not have enough products to move or have delivered to justify the need for a full semi truck load. That’s where the partial truckload service or LTL freight comes into play. What is a partial truckload service? LTL or less than truckload service was designed to accommodate the smaller businesses using freight services, by combining several smaller loads from multiple businesses to make one complete truckload.
