Full Truck Load(FTL)
FTL or Full TruckLoad is the transport of goods that fill up a full truck, or a partial load shipment occupying an entire truck. Bulk foods are typically shipped by FTL. FTL is contracted to one customer. It's faster and more expensive.
A dry van is a type of semi-trailer that's fully enclosed to protect shipments from outside elements. Designed to carry palletized, boxed or loose freight, dry vans aren't temperature-controlled (unlike refrigerated “reefer” units) and can't carry oversized shipments (unlike flatbed trailers).
TRUCK TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
Reefer freight refers to refrigerated and temperature controlled freight movements and equipment used to transport perishables or other temp-controlled freight. All freight modes, meaning FTL, LTL, intermodal, rail, ocean and air have reefer freight services available.
A flatbed is a type of truck that has an entirely flat, level “bed” body with no sides or roof. ... When freight is being shipped that could not be easily loaded into a van due to weight, length or unconventional size, it can be loaded onto the open deck of a flatbed more easily.
Hot shot trucking (AKA hotshot trucking)
Hot shot trucking (AKA hotshot trucking) involves hauling smaller, more time-sensitive LTL loads within a specific timeframe, and usually to a single customer or location. ... Instead of keeping expedited shipping vehicles on standby, hot shot hauling jobs are distributed to various drivers through load boards.
