Less Than Truckload (LTL) Services from P4D

Less than truckload is a term that refers to a road freight service whereby packages from multiple senders are transported together in a single truck. It’s designed for people who would not be able to fill or afford a full truckload on their own. 

As you can imagine the pricing structure for less than truckload consignments is far more lenient and affordable than that of full truckload deliveries.  You only pay for the space that your packages take up and therefore split the cost with other customers who are also transporting their goods.  

At P4D a full truckload constitutes as the space taken up by 26 pallets, however, the number of pallets may change depending on the overall weight and size of your freight delivery.  In the UK and Europe, over half of the total pallet load of a freight delivery truck is considered a full truckload (FTL). Therefore any amount of crates, pallets, boxes or small parcels that take up less space than half of the total pallet load can fill part of a less than truckload shipment used by other senders. 

Our knowledgeable and experienced team members will be on hand to advise you on how you can best use a less than truckload delivery service. They’ll work in tandem with your requirements to find the most affordable rates, organise the logistics of transporting your goods and provide you with a unique tracking reference you can use to receive up to date information from the courier.
