Maersk Full Truckload & Less-than-Truckload

Ensure seamless ground transportation across your supply chain with efficient, flexible and reliable trucking services.

What are full truckload and less-than-truckload services?  

Full truckload and less-than-truckload ground freight services plays a vital role in any end-to-end integrated freight operations strategy. They represent a logistics ecosystem that connects nodes across the entire regional network, providing a crucial link to extended transportation services.

At their core, full truckload and less-than-truckload services encompass all point-to-point truck movements, enabling fast and efficient deliveries across your road transportation network.

Here are some of the key differences between full truckload and less-than-truckload services.

Full Truckload (FTL)

Full Truckload (FTL) involves the transportation of large freight volumes. It is designed for shipments large enough to occupy the full capacity of a truck trailer, usually by a single customer. FTL is ideal for high-volume shipments, long distances, and when the freight is time-sensitive.

Less-than-Truckload (LTL)

Less-than-Truckload (LTL), on the other hand, is designed for transporting smaller freight volumes that do not require the full capacity of a truck. This method involves consolidating shipments from multiple customers into a single truck.
