LTL Shipping essentially carry’s freight that can be broken down into units that are less than 150 pounds, meaning the cargo is usually too big for UPS package but not a complete truckload.

Unlike Full truck load carriers, LTL shipping specializes in different services such as residential pick-ups and delivery, lift gate, transit, protect from freeze and many more related services.
