Types of Freight and Freight Modes

types of freight

LTL (Less Than Truckload)


LTL freight includes freight shipments that do not completely occupy an entire truck trailer. Most freight trailers on the road today are 8’ – 8.5’ wide, 12.5’ – 13.5’ high, and 40’ – 53’ long. This allows carriers to load several LTL shipments into a single truck and service multiple customers and destinations. LTL freight shipments typically weigh between 200 and 10,000 lbs. A typical Krazytown order is LTL.

Partial Truckload


Partial truckload shipments are shipments that don’t completely fill the truck, but tend to remain on a single truck similar to full truckload shipments. As a result, they are subjected to less handling than LTL shipments. Average partial truckload shipments fall between LTL and FTL sizes and weight. The core difference between LTL and Partial TL is the way it is transported rather than its size or weight.

FTL (Full Truckload)


Truckload freight includes all freight shipments that solely occupy a trailer. These are large volume or weight shipments from point to point. Weight limits depend on the weight of the vehicle and local laws, but typically are around 34,000 – 45,000 lbs. in the US. The most typical truckload shipments are transported via dry van, flatbed, and refrigerated trailers.
