How Do LTL Companies Make Money?

If all that LTL companies haul is small loads, how on earth do they make money? In most cases you will find that these companies make more money than FTL or Full Truck Load companies. This is because an LTL company carries multiple shipments each of which is paying freight to a similar destination instead of a single customer paying for the entire truck. These small shipments typically add up to more than a single shipment.

For the small to medium businesses, this ability to make smaller shipments to a variety of customers at affordable prices can mean the difference between making a profit and going out of business. If you need to find LTL companies to handle your shipments, contact LTL Freight Shipping and let us connect you with companies that are in your area and are more than willing to work with you to get your loads delivered to where they need to go.
