LTL (Less Than Truckload) refers to the small freight or a limited quantity for a truck. In short, if there is not enough load to fill a truck, it is necessary to consolidate the goods of more than one company with LTL. With LTL, exporters and importers can ship at a cost proportional to the truck's load. LTL offers a more profitable transportation model for transporters with partial cargo transportation compared to an alternative and full truck.
