LTL (Less ThanTruckload)

LTL stands for “Less than TruckLoad” or “Less Than Load.” LTL shipping is used for freight that is too large to take to the post office but too small for an entire truck. When shipping LTL freight (150 to 15,000 lbs), you share a truck with other shippers and pay only for the space your cargo occupies.

Why Choose LTL Freight Shipping?

Shippers might choose LTL shipping for:

  • Cargo weighing more than 150 pounds
  • Large, bulky items
  • Palletized or crated shipments
  • Shipments that don’t require the use of the entire trailer
  • Shipping cargo through local terminals and distribution centers
  • Business shippers and individuals who want affordable freight rates

HTR Logistics has a wide network of freight carriers, which allows us to offer a large variety of specialized services, including the following:

  • Expedited Shipping Services are offered for time-sensitive freight. Service levels include 3-day, 2-day, overnight, and next-day freight services
  • Lift Gate Services are often needed at pick up and/or delivery when a forklift isn’t available on site. Many of our carriers offer lift gate services upon request.
  • Notification Services can be arranged before shipment pick up or delivery, so you know when to expect the truck
  • White Glove Services are available for residential shipments or commercial locations. This service is best for items that need an extra set of hands or packaging experience.
  • Limited Access Pick Ups/Deliveries are offered where locations or destinations restrict trucks from entering, such as: some residential areas, construction sites, military bases, schools, churches, and government facilities. Freight center works with carriers equipped to access such locations.
  • Hazardous Materials Transportation may include, but is not limited to, transport of fuels, bio-chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. FreightCenter has specialized carriers that handle hazmat transportation.

Guaranteed Services may include both date- and time-specific needs for pick up or delivery, guaranteed within a predetermined time window (e.g., before noon on a Thursday, or after 5 p.m. on a Tuesday). Speak with our Freight Agents to arrange shipment with a carrier that offers such guarantees.
