Not every regular shipper needs FTL expedited freight services. Smaller businesses that are growing often cannot fill an entire semi-trailer, yet they need to get their goods delivered in a timely manner. That’s why Soorma Trucking offers LTL expedite loads as part of our national business-to-business freight services.
LTL Expedited Trucks Are a Budget-Friendly Option
When you select our LTL expedited trucks, you only pay for the space in the truck occupied by your goods. Cargo from other businesses occupies the remainder of the space in the trailer. These shipments are generally too big for small parcel carriers ranging from 5,000 to 10,000 pounds, but can occasionally weigh more. LTL shipments are a great way to save money on your trucking needs and get your goods to their destination on time; plus, you don’t have to spend money for empty space in an FTL shipment.
When to Choose Expedited LTL Shipping
On the surface, choosing between FTL and LTL expedited trucks may seem easy. However, we recommend you take several factors into account before making your decision. Factors beyond weight include:
• How much space your shipment occupies
• Its freight class
• Pickup and delivery locations
• Special needs for sensitive items
The dimensions of your shipment can also affect your ability to use our LTL shipping service because it will affect how it will fit in the truck. If your goods have an odd shape, they may take up more room and require full truckload services.
