Answers to common full load trucking questions
What is the difference between less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload (FTL) shipping?
Full truckload shipping is for shippers that have enough cargo to fill an entire trailer and the pickup or delivery time is critically important to hit. LTL (less than truckload) shipping is for shippers with a cargo load that won't fill an entire trailer and the loading and delivery times are flexible. Generally speaking, full truckload can be a faster option than LTL because the shipment goes directly to its destination, whereas LTL shipments will make multiple stops before reaching the drop-off location.
How many pallets can fit in a full truckload shipment?
A truck can carry up to 30 standard pallets safely. Standard pallets are usually measured at 40” x 48”. Other pallets can be larger and require more advanced planning for full truckload shipping.

How do I track my truckload shipment?
Tracking your truckload shipment is easy with our tracking system. You’ll simply enter your Freightquote bill of lading (BOL) number(s) into the system and it will provide a status update of your shipment.
How much weight can a full load truck carry?
The average weight a driver of a truck and trailer combination is comfortable hauling is generally between 42,000 and 44,000 pounds. Dry vans are able to carry up to 45,000 pounds. For a full truckload shipment, it’s best to ask the carrier what their weight capacity is for the trailer to make sure you won’t go over the amount they can hold with your shipment.
