We have a wide range of transport options and are specialised in arranging FTL, LTL and groupage transport. Whether you need a full trailer or just want to ship a few pallets, we have a solution for you.
FTL stands for Full Trailer Load and is a transport method in which a truck loads a full trailer with a single shipment from one shipper to one consignee. This means that the entire truck capacity is used to transport the goods of one shipper. FTL transport is usually used when the shipment is large enough to fill the entire loading space of a trailer, for example, with 32 pallets or large machines. FTL transport can usually be delivered faster than LTL transport because there is no need to make stops to pick up other shipments.
LTL stands for "Less Than Truckload," which means that it involves a freight that is smaller than the full capacity of a truck. With LTL transport, multiple shipments from different customers are combined and transported together. This makes the transportation more efficient and cost-effective than using an entire truck for a smaller shipment. LTL transport is therefore particularly suitable for companies that need to ship smaller loads and want to save costs.
Groupage transport is also a form of partial load, but the difference with LTL is that groupage, the shipment is combined with shipments from different customers to the same destination. This involves smaller quantities of goods that are not enough for a full truckload. This makes transportation more cost-effective and efficient.

FTL stands for "Full Trailer Load", which means that the entire trailer is used for transportation. This is often the case when, for example, 32 pallets need to be transported, but it may also be necessary when you want to transport a large and heavy machine. In this case, it is desirable that no other goods are in the trailer to prevent any damage.
LTL staat voor "Less than Trailer Load", wat betekent dat de vracht minder is dan de capaciteit van een volledige vrachtwagen. Dit type transport wordt vaak gebruikt wanneer je niet genoeg goederen hebt om een volledige trailer te vullen. LTL transport is echter een goede optie voor klanten die een kleine hoeveelheid goederen vervoeren. Omdat LTL transport wordt gedeeld met andere klanten, is het vaak goedkoper dan FTL transport. Bovendien is LTL transport flexibeler, omdat klanten slechts een deel van een vrachtwagen hoeven te huren. Maar je moet er wel rekening mee houden dat je vaak aan een dag en tijdstip vast zit, omdat er op andere locaties ook goederen worden opgehaald om de trailer te vullen. Onze transportspecialisten vertellen je graag meer hierover en ook wat de best passende oplossing is voor jouw LTL transport.
We offer not only FTL and LTL transport, but also groupage. With groupage, the driver passes several addresses in the same region before driving to his final destination. This is an economical solution if you want to have one or a few pallets transported. Would you like more information about groupage transport options? Then contact one of our specialists.
Yes, generally speaking, FTL is faster than LTL transport. This is because FTL takes up the entire truck and goes directly to the destination, while LTL combines goods from multiple customers and makes stops along the way to different destinations. This can result in longer delivery times for the goods to reach their final destination.
Transportation costs are calculated based on a number of factors. For example, it depends on the distance between the loading and unloading point, what exactly you want to transport (FTL or LTL) and whether groupage is possible. We always look for the cheapest and best option for your shipment, to ensure you are not paying too much.
