FTL means you have enough products that can fill the entire truck. FTL is good for business that needs to transport large or numerous products. If you have a high volume of products more than 15,000 pounds and will require the space of the entire truck, the FTL is your ground freight option.

The truck will only be shipping your product. FTL is a cost-effective mode of shipment if you have enough product to fill out an entire truck. It typically consists of 10 or more pallets.
