LTL, PTL or FTL | Heavy equipment shipping with Eurosender

LTL stands for “Less than Truckload”, PTL for “Partial than Truckload” and FTL for “Full Truckload”. The type of the shipping service will depend on the size of your shipment. For example, when moving heavy machinery, FTL will be probably used.

  • LTL – the shipment is not enough to fill a full truckload. Learn more about LTL.
  • PTL – the shipment is quite big but still not enough to fill a full truckload. Learn more about PTL.
  • FTL – there are enough items to fill up an entire truck trail. Learn more about FTL.

In these cases, pallets, corrugated shipping containers and crates will be needed to secure the shipment in the truck. Forklifts and pallet jacks are also necessary to move the items in a way that eliminates that risk of damages. Of course, that does not apply when it comes to shipping heaving machinery. In this case, heavy machinery movers are being used.
