New Year, New Shipments!
Beitler Logistics Services knows better than anyone that each new year comes with unique challenges for your business, and the roads will only get more crowded from here. So if your business expects to transport large quantities of items in the near future, we’re the third-party logistics (3PL) provider with the expertise to get your items where they need to be — on time, every time.
As families return from their holiday vacations, we can expect to see the roads get worse before they get better. Consolidated shipments will be the way to go for your more extensive transport needs. Beitler’s Full Truckload (FTL) service is the solution for you.
What Is Full Truckload?
What is Full Truckload anyway? Full Truckload, or FTL, refers to the transportation of goods using a single truck to carry a large volume of goods from one location to another. While often overlooked in favor of lumping various shipments together, FTL is a reliable method for businesses with bulk shipments that can’t be easily divided into smaller units or who need to transport goods on a tight deadline.
There are plenty of good reasons to go with full truckloads as your new shipping solution. For one, FTL allows for more efficient and cost-effective shipping. Unlike Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping, which divides truck space among several smaller shipments, FTL dedicates the entire truck to your single shipment. Likewise, FTL can be the more convenient and reliable option for time-sensitive shipments, as the goods are not subjected to the extra handling and transit delays that LTL shipments may face.
How Does Full Truckload Shipping Work?
Full Truckload shipping involves filling up a single truck to transport a large volume of goods from one location to another. The truck is typically owned by a third-party logistics (3PL) provider or an associated carrier, and the goods are transported in a trailer attached to the truck. This mass consolidation of items differentiates FTL from other conventional shipping methods. In contrast, Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping will use the same truck to transport several smaller shipments that are bound for different destinations. This results in more handling and more total stops, which can bog down the process if your shipping needs are more extensive.
Why Go With Full Truckload?
Full Truckload is often a more efficient and cost-effective shipping method for businesses with large shipments that cannot be easily divided into smaller units, such as pallets of goods or large pieces of machinery. This makes FTL the ideal transportation option for long-distance shipments. While shared truckloads tend to charge based on the weight of an item, FTL shipments are more concerned with the distance traveled. For particularly heavy shipments, a Full Truckload can save you a significant amount of money.
FTL is often the most efficient option for time-sensitive shipments as well. Because there are no competing shipments with alternate destinations, a Full Truckload requires no unnecessary intermediate stops between your facilities and the recipient. This also improves security, as there is little to no need for additional handling. This can grant you some much-needed peace of mind while your shipments are in transit.
