FTL Freight Shipping should be easy. Red Arrow has over 50 FTL freight shipping carriers under contract offering competitive pricing and various service levels to meet your unique freight requirements. Our clients’ have the capability to quote and book their FTL freight online.
TL are shipments that take up the entire space or weight limit of a trailer, so they are best for businesses that have high-volume shipping. The most common equipment type is a class 8 tractor with a 53’ dry van trailer, but refrigerated and open deck trailers can also be used. Shippers choose truckload in the following situations:
- The shipment fills an entire truck.
- The shipper wants the truck exclusively.
- The freight has a deadline.
- The weight makes it more cost-effective than less-than-truckload.
Reliable FTL Shipping
Shipments travel on one truck to one destination directly without multiple stops as compared to LTL. Truckload shipping is the better choice when the freight weighs more than 15,000 pounds or the company has more than 10 pallets of goods. When a large amount of goods is being shipped, TL is the more economical method for shipping.
Unlike LTL, once loaded the driver may stop at a weigh station to verify that the truck is under the 80,000 lb. threshold. This is usually the only inspection of the product until the shipment reaches the delivery dock. TL freight also differs as drivers will accept firm appointment times, which is unlike the multiple pickups that LTL usually has.
