What is truckload shipping?

Truckload Freight Loading


Truckload shipping is the movement of miscellaneous cargo, specifically shipping the amount of goods necessary to completely fulfill a semi-trailer or intermodal container. Longshot Logistics will generally contract an entire trailer (or multiple trailers) at a discounted shipping rate.  This is not to be confused with less-than-truckload shipping in which a trucking carrier will mix freight from multiple customers to fill each trailer. One benefit of truckload shipping is one carrier will typically handle your freight from start to finish reducing shipping issues.
