What is the difference between LTL and FTL freight?
Posted by Priti Dubey 22 days ago
Most popular Answer: FTL or Full Truck Load is the freight type when a shipper books the complete truck/lorry for the transportation of goods. FTL services are generally preferred by shippers that have a constant need for delivery of a fixed set of goods from one location to another. LTL or Less-than Truck Load is the freight type where a shipper books only a portion of the truck/lorry carrier space while the rest is booked by a different shipper. LTL services are commonly preferred by SMEs that have comparatively lesser load for transportation.The differences between FTL and LTL can be divided in 4 main factors: DIMENSIONS: In a FTL, the freights are generally larger shipments that completely fill a truck, where as in LTL, the freights are smaller in dimensions and fill only half or a portion of the truck. COST: Since LTL freights are smaller in dimension and require only a portion of truck to be filled, they are cheaper, as shippers pay only for the space they use. FTL freights are larger in dimension and require the full truck to be booked, and thus are costlier. TIME: FTL freights are the best bet if a shipper needs to get their goods delivered on time, as these freights are pre-decided and fill a truck completely, ensuring that the truck moves from source to destination in a single trip. LTL freights on the other hand are not time-bound as they require to stop at multiple shipper locations and destinations to transport the different goods loaded. HANDLING: FTL freights are the preferred method if a shipper needs to transport goods while ensuring least of damages. FTL freights completely fill a truck and do not require to be shifted or un-loaded multiple times to arrange other loads as in LTL, thus reducing chances of damage. LTL freights on the other hand are more prone to be damaged as they may be shifted or handled multiple times before being delivered.

What is FTL? How is it different from PTL?

Most popular Answer: Full Truck Load or FTL, is the load type where a truck/lorry is filled completely with a shipper's load. When a shipper needs to transport a huge consignment of goods from its manufacturing unit or warehouse to a single location, they opt for FTL or full truck load logistics services. Full truck load services are very beneficial for shippers when they have the need of constant delivery of a fixed amount of goods from one location to another. Here are some reasons why full truck load (FTL) is beneficial: Lesser Size & Weight Restrictions: in FTL, the shipper has to worry less about the size & weight restrictions of the load as the shipment dimensions are pre-determined of a fixed size according to the truck/lorry booked. Efficient & Hassle-free Delivery: Since in FTL, the load is destined for movement from source to destination location, it ensures the load is delivered quickly and efficiently. Cost-Effective: FTL shipments are much more cost-effective than other loading types as transporters provide much better rates for transporting of bulk goods on a fixed basis. Less Risky: As FTL shipments have a fixed source & destination location, there are less chances of the shipment being handled multiple times or being constantly shifted. In FTL a full truck/lorry is dedicated to a single shipment and ensures less damage. There are many FTL service providers in India that offer all sorts of FTL services at reasonable rates. If you are looking for one, you can visit Vahak - India's Largest Online Marketplace, where you can book full truck load (FTL) services at 0% commission. Check them out here:
