What is the difference between FTL and LTL? Are there specific situations in which one would be a better option than the other?
The difference between FTL and LTL are simple. Full truckload (FTL) is just that: a shipment that takes up a full truck. FTL may also be used to ensure no other company's goods are being shipped with yours. Less than truckload (LTL) is used when a shipment of goods does not require the entire capacity of a truck.
