What is less than truckload (LTL) shipping?

Partial loads, also known as “Shared Truckload (STL)” or “Less than Truckload (LTL)”, are a cost-efficient and sustainable transport solution for haulage companies.

The transport method makes it possible to combine several loads from different clients in one truck and transport them on a single route without transshipment.  In contrast to full load transport (FTL), in which the client claims the entire truck for himself, in the case of part load transport, several can have their loads transported together. This leads to lower costs and greater efficiency in transport, as truck capacity is used optimally.

In addition, LTL is also a more sustainable transport solution, as the combination of deliveries reduces the carbon footprint per delivery – so economical and environmentally friendly!


How less-than-truckload transport (LTL) contributes to environmental protection

Less than truck loads (LTL) is not only an economically viable option, but also contributes to green logistics and environmental protection. Compared to full-load transport, LTL uses less fuel and thus reduces CO₂ emissions per load. In addition, by combining several shipments on one route, empty runs can be avoided and truck capacities can be better used. This not only leads to a lower environmental impact, but also to lower transport costs. By switching to LTL, customers can not only optimize their business, but also contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Less than truckload planning and organization is simplified with online tools. Route planning should be well coordinated to keep transport routes short and efficient. A constant exchange with transport partners: inside and customers: inside also increases efficiency. Monitor the progress of your part loads - for example via Yolda's live tracking function - and adjust your planning if necessary to achieve the best possible result.

There are several options here. At Yolda, an API-supported system takes over the search, connecting you with suitable transport partners in just a few minutes, depending on your load. And at the lowest possible price and with the shortest route.

Less than truck loads can help reduce transportation costs by combining multiple less than truck loads on one route. By using existing capacity and avoiding empty runs, trucking companies and carriers can reduce costs while increasing profit margins. However, organizing part loads also requires effective planning and coordination to avoid delays and unnecessary costs - Yolda takes care of this effort for you!

Especially in the case of partial loads, you must insist on clear agreements with customers and suppliers and implement a transparent billing system. All parties involved must view and approve the costs and prices. All relevant information, such as shipping documents and invoices must be precisely documented and stored. This careful accounting and documentation can ensure a smooth process
