Shipping a full truckload (FTL) provides more options for your cargo. Shipping FTL from origin to destination is the most time and cost efficient way to truck a large amount of cargo. Your cargo remains with a dedicated trailer, meaning there is no need to consolidate with other cargo. FTL options for large shipments may include specialized equipment such as air ride, removable goose-neck flatbed, heavy haul trucking, and refrigerated trucks.
As a rule of thumb, FTL shipments normally range from 15,000 pounds to 45,000 pounds. The pricing for FTL shipping is based on a rate per mile cost with a minimum charge per load. All trucked commodities are classified separately based on density, handling, storability, and liability.
