An LTL (less-than-truckload) freight shipment consists of goods, commodities or cargo that weighs more than 150 lbs. It's usually palletized. And as its name suggests, it's shipped via truck and requires only a portion of the trailer space. LTL Shipping is considered less urgent than express freight that needs to be transported by plane, and is therefore more economical to ship. If you ship LTL freight with Comet Delivery Services, your shipments can travel within New England and to Eastern Canada.
LTL shipping utilizes space in a transport containing shipments from more than one customer. This form of transport allows you to share the costs with the other companies, helping to meet the budgets of smaller businesses or companies looking to keep costs low. LTL freight carriers make multiple stops along the way from the point of origin to the destination.
