Partial Truckloads, Explained

Contrary to LTL shipments, which are classified by freight class with rates that are based on each carrier’s LTL rates by class, partial truckload shipments are larger, and have latitude for innovative pricing and classification. LTL shipments are transported either by van (enclosed truck) or by a truck with an open deck. However, there are times when neither of these solutions is a fit for a particular shipment. The solution? Partial truckloads.


  • Add your freight to loads with other people’s freight.
  • Do not require a freight classification.
  • Offer cost savings for the shipper.
  • Ensure your freight stays on the same truck for the entire shipping process: no on/off, no reloading.

Sound too good to be true? Depending on your needs, a partial truckload may be a win-win-win for shipping your freight.

Hotshot shipping refers to the type of truck that’s used, the type of shipment, or both. If you’re looking for another option for your single shipment, our team will help you explore the option of using hotshot shipping.
