FAQs about FTL shipping and quotes

What is FTL shipping?
FTL means Full Truckload, which refers to shipments that require an entire truck for transporting larger loads on pallets. FTL transport is the ideal solution for those who wish to transport 10 pallets or more, quickly, without sharing the space in the vehicle with other shippers. Historically, to organise a full truckload transport the shipper needed to contact several transporters to gather and compare quotes until the service could be scheduled – but not anymore. At Eurosender, we are proud to be one of the first companies to offer instant and competitive quotes for FTL shipping, directly on our platform.
Is FTL cheaper than LTL?
FTL shipping may be a cheaper solution for moving larger loads that fill up the entire space or almost all of the truck. However, if your loads only take up half or part of the truck, a shared truck (LTL) transport may be a cheaper solution, since then you will only pay for the space you require. The rest will be filled with cargo from other shippers. To find out which service will be more cost-effective for your shipment, please request a personalised offer and our logistics experts will provide you with a free quote via email, detailing which freight company will carry out your shipment and the price. You can either accept or refuse the offer – with no obligation to book.
What are the benefits of booking an FTL shipping service?
The main benefits of transporting your shipment via FTL are speed, safety and comfort. Since you will not have to share the space of the truck with anyone else, the FTL carrier will transport your load directly from collection to delivery, in the shortest time possible without unnecessary diversions. Additionally, transporting goods on pallets has been proved to be safer than in boxes, since this packaging method is sturdier and more resistant. Another great benefit of choosing the FTL transport service is the attractive cost since this is usually the most affordable solution for moving such large loads.

What can I send with an FTL shipment?
FTL shipping services are suitable for transporting various types of items, such as multiple boxed packages, furniture for removals, and other larger, bulky items packaged on or equal to 10 pallets or more. FTL freight companies usually prefer items packed in stackable pallets to optimise the space of the truck, but we can handle any shipping exception. If you are unsure if this is the right service for you, reach out to our team to discuss your options for FTL shipping or other services available.
Do I need a forklift for FTL shipments?
A forklift is extremely handy for loading and unloading the pallets on the truck. When scheduling the service, please bear in mind that the customer is responsible for loading and unloading the cargo. If you do not have the necessary equipment and require any extra tools or assistance, please inform us during the booking process so we can arrange everything for you together with the logistics provider.
Will the FTL carrier contact me before collection?
FTL carriers will usually contact the customer to confirm the details of the shipment, before collection and delivery. Please make sure you are available to be contacted on the phone provided, and that your shipment is ready for collection before your FTL carrier arrives.
Is transport insurance included when booking an FTL transport service?
Yes, when booking a full truck (FTL) delivery service with us, you have basic transport insurance already included in the price. For extra protection for your FTL shipment, we offer additional insurance options at extremely affordable rates, which can be purchased during the booking process.
