If you have less than a truckload of cargo that needs to be moved, we offer you our LTL services.
We care for our customers regardless of cargo size.
LTL is a type of ground freight transportation that combines shipments from multiple customers. Businesses choose this budget-friendly option when the consumer demand for their products is average or stable. Less than truckload shipping is affordable for small business because you share the transportation costs with other companies. Each company takes up a portion of the truck for their goods and only pays according to the amount of product shipped and the length of travel.
Alcatraz LLC, as an experienced transportation logistics company will work hard to save you money by matching your shipments with regularly scheduled shipments heading to the same destination.
This mode has benefits shippers should consider when looking for faster transit times, less handling, and a more cost-effective solution. Definitions of LTL vary but are generally based on the size of the order (weight and linear feet) and service requirements (time sensitivity and the type of freight). LTL networks are optimized for shipments generally less than 12 linear feet and one to six pallets. Full truckloads tend to contain 26 to 30 pallets and approximately 42,500 pounds. Why pay for a full truckload if you don’t have to?
