About Less Than Truckload
Less than truckload (LTL) service is a type of transportation used for shipments that usually weigh less-than 10,000 pounds. An LTL freight does not utilize the full capacity of a semi-trailer. The transit time of LTL carriers is less than that of full-truckload service providers. In addition, using an LTL carrier is cost effective for customers as the shipment is transported for a fraction of the cost of hiring an entire truck. Often, LTL service providers go beyond logistics and provide value-added services such as inventory management, cross-docking, door-to-door delivery, and packaging. Currently, LTL service providers are improving logistics by introducing innovations in SCM.
Technavio's analysts forecast the less than truckload market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 8.15% over the period 2014-2019.
