FTL (Full Truck Load)

FTL (Full Truck Load)

The term FTL (Full Truck Load), in Italian full load, indicates a transport in which the truck carries a single load and is full. In Italian, full load.

Full loads are advantageous for drivers, transport companies and clients. With the full load, the transport company avoids greater expenditure of time and money for notifications and invoicing, as well as unnecessary waiting in the places of loading and unloading. For the driver, the effort for loading and unloading and securing the load is reduced. For the customer, the full load represents the fastest alternative to transport or have the goods transported directly from the sender to the recipient, without intermediate stages.

FTL contrasts with partial load, also called LTL (Less Than Truckload). In road transport we speak of FCL (Full Container Load), while in rail transport of complete wagons.
