FTL solves two potential problems for clients moving freight, either they have too large of quantity suitable for LTL or they need it to move faster than the LTL transit time. Full Truckload shipping enables us to buy the entire space of a trailer solely for the use of that single shipment. Below we breakdown how much space that offers you, when FTL makes sense, unique options for FTL.


Why Choose FTL?


Booking a FTL move means you have 53' of space to fill. If they are standard pallets (48x40), you can fit 26 non-stackable pallets. If they pallets are turned to (40x48) you can fit 30 non-stackable pallets. If your freight is moved on non-standard pallets, let us know and our knowledgeable team can advise how much space your freight will require.


LTL freight is able to offer economic pricing because there is shared space on the truck and it goes from terminal to terminal along the transit. FTL bypasses that and it moves exclusive and dedicated. Making sure your freight stays on the same trailer for the duration of the shipment. This reduces transit time for all full truckload shipments. The typical rule of thumb is 600 miles in a day for a driver.


Within FTL we have some special features we can offer. The ability to schedule pickup and delivery appointments is paramount in this sector of transportation. FTL can also do multi-stop shipments that involve either multiple pickups or multiple deliveries. The above info depicted the benefits of transit time being quicker for FTL, well if that still isn't quick enough we can offer moving your freight with TEAM drivers. Instead of one solo driver, it is a team of drivers who make sure the truck does not stop to reset hours, instead it drives non-stop to get the freight to the destination even quicker.
