Navigating Freight Shipping: Understanding LTL, PTL, and FTL

When it comes to shipping freight, understanding the different options available can make a significant difference in meeting your business’s specific needs. At Sehaj Group of Companies, located in New York State, we offer a variety of shipping options tailored to accommodate various shipment sizes, timelines, and requirements.

Let’s delve into the three primary shipping options we provide: Less Than Truckload (LTL), Partial Truckload (PTL), and Full Truckload (FTL), to help you make informed decisions for your logistics needs.

Less Than Truckload (LTL) Shipping

LTL shipping is an ideal choice for businesses that have smaller freight shipments that don’t require an entire truck’s capacity. With LTL shipping, multiple shippers share space on a single truck, making it a cost-effective solution for shipping smaller quantities of goods.

  • Cost-Effective: Pay only for the space your shipment occupies, making LTL shipping a budget-friendly option for smaller freight loads.
  • Flexible Scheduling: Enjoy flexible pickup and delivery options tailored to fit your business’s specific timelines and requirements.
Partial Truckload (PTL) Shipping

Partial Truckload (PTL) shipping bridges the gap between LTL and FTL, offering a flexible solution for shipments that are larger than LTL but don’t require a full truck’s capacity. With PTL shipping, your freight gets dedicated space on a truck, providing faster transit times and reduced handling compared to LTL.

  • Faster Transit Times: Benefit from quicker deliveries compared to LTL, as your freight shares space with fewer shipments, reducing transit times.
  • Reduced Handling: Minimize the risk of damage or loss by reducing the number of times your freight is handled during transit, ensuring safer and more secure transportation.
Full Truckload (FTL) Shipping

Full Truckload (FTL) shipping is the ideal choice for businesses with large shipments that require the entire space of a truck. With FTL shipping, your freight gets exclusive use of a truck, providing faster transit times, fewer stops, and reduced handling compared to shared shipping options.

  • Exclusive Use: Your freight gets dedicated space on a truck, ensuring faster transit times and reduced handling, minimizing the risk of damage or loss.
  • Direct Route: Enjoy direct shipping with fewer stops, ensuring your freight reaches its destination quickly and efficiently without unnecessary delays.
