What is land freight?
Land freight is the movement of goods by road or rail from their point of origin to their final destination. Land freight services can accommodate a wide range of cargo, from hazardous chemicals to oversized or project cargo to temperature controlled perishable items.
What does LTL mean?
LTL means ‘Less than truckload’ in road freight. This is when shippers do not have enough cargo for a full load, and pay for a certain amount of space on a truck or lorry. The rest of the available space is taken up by other customers. LTL shipments are packed into pallets and give access to other road freight services.
What does FTL mean?
FTL means a ‘Full Truckload’ shipment. Customers pay for the use of an entire lorry, even if their cargo does not completely fill it. FTL shipments can be more direct and reduce the risk of handling errors and contamination with other goods.
