Shipping can be a complex business. When you receive a package at your door, you probably don’t think about how it got there. But if you’re a business owner shipping out products to your customers and distributors, you have to think about it. If you own a smaller business, you probably need less than truckload (LTL) freight delivery. And if you need freight delivery of any kind in Massachusetts, you need Fleet Couriers. Here’s everything you need to know about LTL trucking in Massachusetts so you can make the best decision about your freight and shipping needs.
What is LTL trucking?
First things first: let’s define our terms. When researching freight and shipping, you have probably come across the phrases “full truckload” and “less than truckload,” or FTL and LTL. So what’s the difference? The names are pretty self-explanatory. FTL is a shipment that fills a full truck, while LTL is a shipment that does not fill a full truck. Fleet Couriers pickup and delivery are same-day, you don’t have to worry about delayed shipping because your shipment is not a full truck.
Why choose LTL trucking?
Deciding between FTL and LTL trucking is a numbers game. And there are a few different numbers to take into consideration. The first is volume: how much stuff are you shipping? If you’re only shipping a few pallets at a time, LTL is going to be the better option. In LTL trucking, you only pay for the space you use, rather than paying for an entire truck that you aren’t going to fill.
With other shipping and courier companies, LTL can mean delayed shipping times because your shipment shares a truck with shipments from other customers. Fleet Couriers operates differently. We pick up and deliver your shipment in the same day, so you don’t have to factor in delayed shipping times or wait until you have a full truck’s worth to ship.
