What is Full Truckload Shipping (FTL)?

Simply put, FTL refers to a full truckload of freight.  A full truckload can refer to two things: you may have enough products to fill an entire full truckload, or you prefer a dedicated truck to handle your partial load. If you have ten pallets or more to ship, if you have a high risk shipment, or if time is an issue, you will want to consider full truckload shipping. Keep reading to find out all about FTL shipping and why it’s a good option for your next shipment!

Full Truckload Shipping FTL

AFP Global Logistics offers economy service, direct-drive for more urgent shipments, and partial load shipping when your shipment has too many pallets for LTL and not enough for a FTL.

The Advantages of Using FTL

There are many reasons why you would want to choose FTL over another type of shipping. Some of these reasons are:

  • FTL will get your shipment delivered much faster than LTL.
  • It is the best way to transport your large shipment.
  • Your shipment will remain in the same truck during the entire shipping process.
  • FTL is ideal for any high risk or delicate freight shipments.

The AFP Difference

AFP Global Logistics offers economy service, direct-drive for more urgent shipments, and partial load shipping when your shipment has too many pallets for LTL and not enough for a FTL. Partial load shipping is more economical and is handled less frequently than LTL freight. AFP has a large network of trucking companies all over the country with service to all shipping lanes, specializing in every aspect of the business: flatbed, step deck, refrigerated, and more!
