An LTL carrier is a trucking company that transports a number of small loads on a single truck. The freight is called LTL because it is less than a truckload. Generally companies that manufacture or transport finished goods from point to point rely on a number of different carriers to handle their freight. Some companies ship truckloads at a time and others may only ship 5 thousand pounds on a few pallets. The LTL carrier specializes in transporting the smaller shipments across town, across state or across

LTL carrier shipments
All LTL shipments are given a classification depending on what is being
shipped. The National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) is the industry
standard for classifying the individual products and commodities that are
shipped from point to point. Shipments are priced according to the class
rating as well as their weight and in some cases, their dimensions.
Generally speaking, heavier, less fragile items are assigned a low class
rating and light and fragile items are given a higher class rating. All
other things being equal, you will pay about twice as much for a 1,000 pound
shipment of a class 100 item as you would for 1,000 pounds of a class 50
