Logistics and supply chain management are incredibly important processes to master as a B2B ecommerce business, especially when you are shipping products at a high frequency. It is important to know what kind of shipping solution works best for your business.
Freight shipping is common among both B2C and B2B merchants that are shipping many or bulk products to customers or other merchants. Here we will answer some common questions around freight (LTL) shipping. If you are new to ecommerce, let this be an introduction to freight logistics that will help you find the best freight solution for moving product to your customer.
LTL stands for "less than truckload" shipping. It refers to the process of transporting pallets of products that require partial but not full space in a freight truck.
Welcome to the world of truckload shipping. LTL freight doesn't require the entire space of a truck while FTL takes up the full space or weight limit of a truck. Generally speaking, you would ship full truckload if your freight to be shipped exceeds 15,000 pounds or requires more than 24 feet of trailer space. FTL shipments will typically be used over LTL if there are 10 or more pallets that need to be shipped. These distinctions are upheld by the national motor freight classification.
Depending on the freight provider or solution you use, there might be slightly different requirements. You can always choose to ship FTL even if your products don't necessarily require a full truckload of space.
Parcel carriers traditionally carry products weighing less than 150 pounds. LTL carriers handle shipments with the least amount of units possible. Both systems are similar in that they use hubs and terminals to deliver freight.
LTL shipping works on a hub and spoke model. The hub terminal is the location where the freight is sorted and delivered or consolidated to be further transported.
Firstly, LTL is cheaper. With LTL you pay only for the portion of the freight truck that your products occupy. It's also more eco-friendly. Because you share truck space with other shippers when you ship LTL, you are helping to cut down on carbon footprint.
It also offers safer packing. Depending on what LTL service provider you use, you will get tracking and management services so you can monitor your shipments and make sure they are getting to the right place. Other components you would gain visibility into would include bill of lading (or "freight bill"), purchase order number, date range, etc. including many other specifications.
There are a few questions to ask yourself if you are considering LTL shipping:
The farther the shipment is going, the higher the price will generally be. However, If you use a flat rate shipping provider like Inxeption, you will not face higher shipping charges if you are shipping from any location in the allotted area.
You will also be charged more based on the dimensions and weight of your LTL shipments, and how much space your shipments take over in the truck. There might also be a need for a density calculation and a consideration of transit time. You can always get a shipping quote from your LTL shipper's customer support or customer satisfaction department before committing to a freight invoice.

Not all LTL shipments only travel by truck. Many LTL carriers also rely on truck and rail or rail and air freight shipments to move freight towards its destination. Air cargo and air freight services give the process speed. These are intermodal shipments. Intermodal freight transportation shipments employ multiple methods of transporting the goods from start to destination.
LTL services have become more important in today's economy with the rise of ecommerce. If you're wondering if LTL or FTL shipping is right for your e-commerce business or would fit in with your logistics processes, get in touch with Inxeption. Our experts can advise you on the best course of action.
