Full Truck Load (FTL) Services

What is a Full Truck Load or FTL service?

Full Truckload (FTL) shipping is a logistics method where a single customer utilises the entire capacity of a truck to transport their cargo. Unlike Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping, where multiple shipments from different customers share a single truck, FTL allows a shipper to have exclusive use of the entire truck. This method is particularly suitable for businesses with large quantities of goods to transport, providing dedicated space for their shipments. The process involves the shipper loading their goods onto the truck, which then travels directly to the destination without intermediate stops for other shipments.

When does Full Truckload (FTL) shipping become price competitive for businesses?

FTL becomes price competitive for businesses when they have a sufficiently large volume of goods to fill the entire truck. Generally, FTL is more cost-effective for shipments that exceed more than 7 or 8 full pallet loads. As the shipment size approaches or exceeds the full capacity, the cost per unit of freight decreases, making FTL a favourable option in terms of cost efficiency. Additionally, FTL offers advantages in terms of speed, reduced handling, and increased security, contributing to its competitiveness for businesses with sizeable shipping needs.

How does Full Truckload (FTL) contribute to transportation efficiency?

FTL contributes to transportation efficiency by streamlining the shipping process. With dedicated use of the entire truck, FTL eliminates the need for multiple stops to pick up or drop off other shipments, resulting in faster transit times. This efficiency is particularly beneficial for time-sensitive shipments or industries requiring a reliable and rapid transportation solution. Furthermore, FTL reduces the risk of damage associated with frequent loading and unloading, enhancing the overall efficiency and reliability of the transportation process.
