What is LTL freight shipping? LTL stands for less than truckload. LTL freight shipping is a cost-effective and sustainable way of using the empty capacity of freight carriers. The loading space of trailers is shared between multiple shippers, which reduces the amount trucks on the road. Ultimately, this leads to less congestion and CO2 emissions, as well as lower prices for you as a shipper.

Shocking fact: around 50% of all trucks on the European roads drive around with empty or half empty cargo space. With Quicargo, you will reduce the waste of these resources. In return, you benefit from better quotes and superior service.

Companies originating from various sectors already work with 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 you should look at FTL (full truckload) shipping.

During LTL pallet shipments, carriers usually pick-up pallets at multiple locations. This means that it is likely that you will share the capacity of a truck with other shippers.

It is important to keep this in mind when ordering a pallet shipment, as some goods (e.g. fresh products and chemicals) cannot always share the same cargo space with other road freight. Less than truckload transport is not suitable in these cases.

How do I prepare LTL pallets?

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.

When preparing for shipping, use professional packaging methods and materials, so that your LTL loads are nicely protected during transport. Please keep in mind that if your road freight is not safely placed on pallets, carriers can decide to reject your goods.
