FTL Shipping & FTL Freight Transportation
If you have large shipment and you need it shipped now, you need a full truckload carrier you can trust. RoadLINX is committed to providing the best FTL service for our customers and works hard to make this one of the fastest, most reliable shipping methods.
What is a Full Truckload?
As the name implies, an FTL is when a truck or intermodal container (full container load, FCL) is filled by one customer with their product. Typically, this shipment goes all to one place and is generally the most cost-effective method of shipping for larger volume shipments. With trucks able to carry in excess of 40,000 lbs, RoadLINX has space for a wide range of products.
When to use FTL
When you are shipping to a high-volume location, that is typically the best time to use an FTL. Also, if your shipment has enough volume to fill a full truckload then an FTL is worth considering.
Benefits of Full Truckload
One of the biggest benefits of sending an FTL is that it is not handled en route, meaning it is safer and leaves even less room for error. This adds up to it being faster as well. Also, since an FTL’s rate is based on mileage and lane use rather than shipment classification, this can be cheaper for some items.
