What is FTL Shipping?

FTL stands for Full Truck Load, and it means reserving a whole truck for your cargo. There’s a number of reasons that FTL shipping could be the best choice for you, especially if you have a larger shipment to move. Here’s a few benefits:

Exclusive Use: With FTL shipping you have the entire truck to yourself during transit, ensuring that your cargo remains untouched during its journey, and completely eliminating the possibility that any of your cargo might get mixed up with another business’. It also means less handling overall and so less room for accidents.

Quicker Transit: FTL freight is typically faster than LTL (Less than Truckload) simply because there are no stops to load or unload other cargo along the way.

Customised Delivery: We can work with you to create custom routes that best suit your delivery requirements. When you have sole use of a truck, it can freely can exactly where you need it to.

Cargo Flexibility: We’re able to offer a variety of truck types to accommodate different types of cargo.

What is the max weight and size for an FTL shipment?

The maximum weight and size for full truckload freight can vary due to a number of factors, one of them being road weight limits for the country you are planning to deliver to. For example, in New Zealand, anything under 30 tonnes is generally accepted, unless the consignment is OOG.

Consignments that are over 30 tonnes will come with some added complexity, such as the potential addition of pilot vehicles. Finally, because other countries can have lower weight limits, it’s always best to confirm with us directly if you’re unsure about the size of your shipment.

What is the difference between FTL and LTL?

The main difference between FTL and LTL is the space your cargo occupies during transportation. While FTL provides exclusive use of a truck, LTL allows your cargo to share space with other shipments. FTL is an ideal choice when you have a larger shipment that requires dedicated transportation, while LTL will likely be a better choice if you don’t have enough cargo to completely fill a truck.
