Business owners and manufacturers choose full truckload shipping or FTL for a number of reasons. They may be shipping a large number of small items, a small number of large items, or something so delicate they need it to have some breathing room. There are a number of advantages to shipping FTL.
Because FTL is a dedicated service, it does usually cost more than LTL shipments. The benefit, however, is the peace of mind in knowing your cargo is staying in the same truck from point A to point B, that it’s safe the entire time, and that it’s going to get where it needs to go efficiently.
