Less than truckload (LTL)

Less than truckload (LTL) refers to a shipping term used to describe a shipment that is too small to fill a full truckload, but is too large to be shipped as a parcel. LTL shipments are typically consolidated with other small shipments to fill a full truck and are then shipped to their destination. This type of shipping is more cost-effective than parcel shipping and offers more flexibility in terms of scheduling and delivery options.
