Here at Faster Freight we offer “less than container load” and “full container load” shipping services.
Our services are defined as the following.
LTL (Less Than Truckload) – This means a shipment that does not require a full 48’ or 53’ trailer. There are specialized carriers for these types of services. It could be a van or a flatbed or any other specialized truck depending on your needs. Pricing depends on the following and not limited to: weight, dimensions, tailgate, inside delivery, residential delivery, and so on. Along with the distance of the shipment.
FTL (Full Truckload) – This means the shipment will fill an entire 48’ or 53’ trailer. FTL shipments can require straight truck, 48’/53’ van or specialized equipment, which depends on the needs of the goods being shipped.
LCL (Less Than Container Load) – Cargo from various shippers is consolidated into one container. At the port of arrival the containers are stripped in the local container freight station and the goods are shipped to their individual destinations.
FCL (Full Container Load) – is a full 20’ or 40’ container and is used mainly to ship across ocean.
