What Is LTL Shipping?

Less-than-truckload, or LTL, is a method of transporting products in smaller amounts to their destination. Unlike a full truckload shipping option, LTL carriers can consolidate shipments from multiple shippers onto one semitruck, saving on delivery and shipment expenses.

LTL Shipping Advantages for Your Business

Switching to LTL shipping has many advantages for your business and satisfying consumer needs. The top benefits of less-than-truckload freight shipping include:

Environmentally Friendly

LTL shipping helps the environment by reducing the trucking industry’s carbon footprint through shipment consolidation. This helps carriers reduce the fuel that is necessary for shipping by utilizing one fuller semitruck to transport different goods to the appropriate destinations instead of multiple trucks with less full trailers.

Saving on Transportation Costs

LTL freight shipping allows businesses to come together and ship their products, reducing costs. Smaller shipments will save your company money by sharing a semitruck, allowing you to only pay for the dimensional space your goods take up during the shipment process.  

Easy Tracking Capabilities 

Whether your client is another business or a consumer, tracking capabilities are available for most products in the shipment process. Using a less-than-truckload shipping option makes it easier to keep track of the products and update tracking, making this shipping method more effective and keeping your clients informed regarding their delivery. 

Allen Distribution understands that consumer needs are ever-changing, requiring you to modify your shipment approach continuously. By adopting less-than-truckload shipping services, you can provide flexible shipping options to accommodate your clients.
