Less than truckload shipments, also referred to as LTL shipments, involve filling up empty or half empty cargo space with pallets in the most efficient way possible. As LTL pallet shipping is Quicargo’s specialty, relying on us for your pallet deliveries is the way to go! By using data and technology efficiently, we connect your LTL freight to the best carrier within our network.

Shocking fact: around 50% of all trucks on the European roads drive around with empty or half empty cargo space. By taking advantage of this empty truck capacity, we offer you a sustainable solution. Next to that, this also enabled us to offer you very low shipping costs. Win-win!

Companies originating from various sectors all rely on Quicargo for their LTL pallet shipments, such as Knauf Insulation, Bos&Cleaning, Scan Modul, Jonkers Bouwmetaal and JetDrinks. Join the Quicargo-family now!

Shipping LTL freight, how does that work?

LTL transportation involves shipments with a volume of less than 17 pallets, or a loading space of 10 meters. Want to send more than 17 pallets at once? Than an FTL (full truckload) shipment is most likely the perfect option for you.

During LTL pallet shippings, carriers pick up pallets at multiple locations. Once the loading space of the truck is full, and no more pallets can be picked up, the carriers will proceed to delivering the pallets.

Thus, in most cases with LTL shippings you share the truck capacity with other companies. It is important to keep this in mind when booking your pallet delivery, as some goods (e.g. fresh products and chemicals) cannot share the same cargo space with other road freight. LTL transport is not suitable in these cases.

Want to book a LTL pallet shipping? Signing up on our digital platform is very easy and fixed within just a few clicks. After you’ve signed up, all that is left to do is give us a few details about your shipment. Once that is done, we give you a direct price. If you accept the shipping costs, Quicargo will immediately link your road freight to the most suitable carrier. Easy as that! 

How do I prepare my cargo for pallet shipping?

It is important to pack your goods in such a way that they are resistant to bumpy rides during transit. If this is not the case, your goods might slide and get damaged during the transportation. We don’t want that of course, as it would be wasteful (and not necessary)!

When preparing for shipping, use professional packaging methods and materials, so that your cargo is nicely protected during transport. Please keep in mind that if your road freight is not packed on pallets in the correct way, carriers can decide to not take your pallet delivery on the road, as it is not ready for transport yet.

Still feeling a bit unsure about how to get your pallet ready for shipping? Watch the video below for short and clear instructions. Note that the method for preparing your pallets can vary, depending on the type of product that needs to be shipped.
