Less than truckloads (LTL) are a good alternative to full truckloads for when you have smaller amounts of product. OCT’s wide network of carriers make it possible to give you most options for your LTL shipment to maximize your cost savings while getting your products distributed more quickly.
LTLs work for a variety of situations and offer a great deal more flexibility than when you have a full truckload. Because an LTL lets you share costs with other shipments, this is usually cheaper than an FTL, depending on the type of cargo you’re sending. An LTL also lets you drop off product in multiple locations.
This method works best with items that can be wrapped and palletized. Even though there is no maximum or minimum amount of the truck that you need to fill, you will still want to ship products that use the space best.
Our OCT logistics team is well versed in the best ways to use LTL shipping. We’ll work with you to get the right plan for your company. Call us at 905-695-1501 to learn more.
