What is Volume LTL Shipping?

Volume Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping is a freight transportation mode that falls between standard LTL and full truckload (FTL) shipping. It involves consolidating multiple shippers’ goods onto one truck, optimizing space and reducing costs for each shipper. It’s ideal for larger but not full-truck shipments that seek cost-effective rates.

Volume LTL Quote FAQs

What is a volume shipment?

A volume shipment refers to the transportation of a large quantity of goods or cargo at once. It typically involves filling a significant portion or the entire capacity of a transportation container or vehicle. Volume shipments are cost-effective for businesses handling substantial quantities of products or materials.

Are all volume shipments the same?

No, not all volume shipments are the same. Volume shipments can vary widely depending on the nature of the goods being transported, the mode of transportation used (e.g., truck, ship, rail), and the specific logistics requirements of the shipper or receiver.

Do volume quotes expire?

Indeed, volume shipment quotes typically have a set expiration date, similar to many shipping quotes. These expirations are necessary due to fluctuations in fuel costs, weather conditions, and seasonal variations in lane capacity. The specific expiration dates for volume quotes can vary among carriers.
