FTL Freight - Not always a Full Load

FTL Freight - Not always a Full Load

FTL Freight comes in many different shapes and sizes. It’s not always a picture of its definition, a Full Truckload. In many cases, FTL freight looks a little different. If you are not sure which way to ship, we hope you will find some clarity here.

FTL Freight is a great way to ship if you have enough cargo to fill a full trailer, but you may benefit from FTL freight in other ways also, even if you don’t fit the criteria for a full load.

FTL Freight for Time-Sensitive Cargo

FTL Freight is great for time sensitive cargoFTL Freight will most defiantly save you and your business time in shipping. If you are in a crunch and need your cargo shipped promptly, you may want to seriously consider shipping your cargo via FTL freight. There will be no time lost in unnecessary stops for other shipments as with LTL freight. Your shipment will have top priority from start to finish and will be your drivers' sole assignment.

 

Odd-sized and Unbalanced Freight

When it comes to odd sized and unbalanced cargo, there may not be a lot of options. For the security of your freight, and potentially any other shipments, FTL freight will probably be your best and safest bet. At American Manufacturing Solutions we are excited to be able to offer a Conestoga flatbed trailer with a tarp system in the mix of options when it comes to those odd sized and unbalanced shipments. The flexibility of this innovative trailer comes in handy during loading and unloading and adds another option in addition to a dry van, or a flatbed.
