When you need to move freight that's small than a full truckload, you have a few options to consider. At Preferred Logistics, we can handle both less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments and partial truckloads. There are some unique benefits about each type of shipment.
LTL freight will pass through a few to several depots, which will result in multiple load and unloads. However, this can work well when your freight is well palletized.
When dealing with a partial load, the freight does not leave the truck until ultimately delivered. This is ideal for equipment and cargo that you do not want handled multiple times.
