A truckload means that you have enough stock to fill a transport trailer. However, a partial shipment that you would like to send in a dedicated way can also be a full load.

A full load (or truckload) is more expensive than a partial load. Your loading selection must be made according to your logistical needs.

Unlike a truckload, less-than truckload means that you do not have enough stock to fill a transport trailer. Normally, several partial loads from different companies are consolidated into a single transport trailer.

This type of loading must often stop along the way to make several pick-ups and/or shipments. This is why transit times are only approximate and therefore never guaranteed.
