One of the most identifiable differences between Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) and Full Truckload (FTL) Carriers is the amount of freight you can move at one time. Far too often shippers will throw 7-8 pallets onto an LTL trailer and think nothing of it; it’s not a full truckload, right? Big... mistake!
It’s 2018, what seems to be the year of LTL Carrier Strength. That being the case, carriers are not missing the opportunity to increase revenue every chance they get.

As the pendulum has shifted, dramatically favoring the LTL carriers, shippers are realizing that if they don't consider changing their processes, they might very well be looking at increases well over 5% in 2018.
