- For smaller shipments, less than truckload shipping works out cheaper. To quickly get accurate estimates on both modes, try this freight class calculator.
When it comes to quoting, LTL shipping is usually calculated by freight class, which usually breaks down to price-per-weight, whereas FTL shipping quotes are usually calculated by price per mile.
Full truckload, commonly referred to as FTL, is a type of shipping mode whereby a truck carries one dedicated shipment. In other words, the journey is reserved for one shipment only. FTL trucking has several advantages over the alternative trucking shipment mode, LTL, or less than a full truckload shipment.
- For shipments that are large enough to fill or nearly fill an entire shipping container, full truckloads work out cheaper.
- FTL shipments get to the destination sooner, as the truck is making no other pickups or drop-offs along the way.

What is flatbed shipping?
Flatbed shipping is transportation for cargo that may not require the enclosure of a dry van, cannot be loaded or unloaded from a dock or does not fit within the dimensions of standard truck trailers. A flatbed’s design allows for cranes and forklifts to load goods from all angles.
Benefits of flatbed shipping.
- Flatbed shipping provides some dimensional flexibility for large freight since there are no physical walls.
- Where dry van trailers are loaded from the rear, flatbed trucks can be loaded from either side, as well as the top and back.
- Flatbed equipment includes step decks, double drops and RGNs
