FTL services involve the transportation of goods that occupy an entire truckload, as the name suggests. This option is chosen when a shipment is large enough to necessitate the exclusive use of a full truck. FTL services are particularly beneficial for businesses dealing with substantial freight volumes, bulky or oversized items, or those requiring dedicated shipments with minimal handling or stops during transit.
The maximum capacity of a standard full truckload (FTL) depends on the pallet sizes you are using, so please check in advance, however, the two most popular pallet sizes are Standard Pallets (120 cm X 100 cm) –up to 26 pallets per load, and Euro Pallets (120 cm X 80 cm)- up to 33 pallets per load. The maximum weight allowed per load is 24 tonnes, and the maximum height our services can handle is 240 cm.
We can ship pallets of all sizes, including mini pallets or oversized pallets, stackable or non-stackable, and pallets containing overhanging goods, so please enter your details in the form above, and we'll calculate the space taken by your pallets and reply with a price.
By opting for FTL services, shippers gain complete control over the truck and its contents, ensuring direct transportation from the pickup point to the destination without any intermediate stops. This approach offers several advantages, including expedited transit times, minimized risks of damage or loss, and heightened security due to reduced handling. Additionally, utilizing the entire truck capacity makes FTL shipments generally more cost-effective for larger volumes of goods.
Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping offers several significant advantages that make it an attractive option for businesses with smaller shipments. LTL is a cost-effective and efficient solution that optimizes truck capacity by consolidating multiple smaller shipments from different customers into a single truckload. This shared capacity enables businesses to benefit from cost savings, as they only pay for the space occupied by their shipment within the truck.
Generally speaking, we consider a part load or less than a truckload (LTL) between 10-20 pallet spaces in a consignment, and a total consignment weight of 4000 to 15000 kg. We accept standard UK 120 x 100 cm pallets, 120 x 80 Euro pallets and other pallet sizes such as 120 x 120 cm. The maximum allowed weight per pallet is 1200 kg, and the maximum height our services can handle is 240 cm.
The trucks and drivers assigned to collect are equipped with the necessary tools and expertise to handle smaller shipments with care. They use pump trucks, tail lifts, and in-vehicle strapping to minimize the risk of damage during transit. This attention to detail helps maintain the integrity of the goods, giving businesses peace of mind that their products will reach their destination safely.
