Just Published: "Less Than Truckload (LTL) Market in the US 2014-2018"

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Nov 12 2014

Less than truckload (LTL) service is a type of road freight transportation used for shipments of relatively small freight. The shipments transported through LTL's generally weigh less-than 10,000 pounds. An LTL freight does not utilize the full capacity of a semi-trailer. LTL carriers take less transit time for transportation of shipments compared to full-truckload service providers. In addition, using a LTL carrier is cost effective for customers as shipment is transported for a fraction of the cost of hiring an entire truck. Often, LTL service providers go beyond logistics and provide value-added services such as inventory management, cross-docking, door-to-door delivery, and packaging. They also provide strategic and operational value to many shippers worldwide. Currently, LTL service providers are improving logistics by introducing innovations in SCM.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Less Than Truckload market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 6.78 percent over the period 2013-2018.
