Understanding the basics of ltl freight

Let us take a look at the mode of the fulfillment of third party shipping contract in an ltl freight. Products from different customers are collected using the smaller cargo carriers available with the company. These products are brought to the hub in the regional location of the company. All the products to be shipped in a particular direction are now loaded in the vehicle moving in that direction. After reaching the local center in the destination area, the products are unloaded. These products are now shipped to the individual destinations using small vehicles and according to terms in the freight shipping quote. As different products of different companies to different destination are traveling in the same truck during the common portion of the route, the ltl freight charges are not too heavy and the customers do not find it too heavy to bear.
