Cardinal LTL Delivery Service

Cardinal Delivery offers access to a vast network of national, inter-regional, and regional carriers providing cost-effective & comprehensive services throughout North America. LTL is typically less expensive than FTL.

First, LTL offers greater flexibility in shipment sizes, as companies can ship partial loads without incurring the cost of a full truck. Second, LTL generally results in lower emissions per unit of freight transported, as businesses can consolidate multiple shipments onto one truck.

Cardinal FTL Delivery Service

Work with our Freight team to find the best truckload procurement strategy for all of your needs. We offer services including, but not limited to:

  • Dry Van
  • Refrigerated
  • Long & Short Haul
  • Multi-Stop
  • Overdimensional/Heavy Haul

FTL is typically more expensive than LTL, but it offers several advantages. First, FTL generally results in faster delivery times, as the goods do not have to be unloaded and reloaded at multiple stops along the way. Second, FTL offers more flexibility regarding schedules and routes, as the driver does not have to coordinate with other shippers. Finally, FTL shipments are typically less likely to be damaged or lost than LTL shipments.

Cardinal Freight Services FAQ

What is the meaning of freight services?
Freight services are logistics service that involves transporting goods by land, air, or sea. Businesses typically use these services to move large quantities of merchandise or raw materials to and from manufacturing plants, distribution centers, or retail locations. 

Businesses can also use freight services to transport finished products to customers. In many cases, freight companies will provide packaging and shipping services in addition to transportation, which can help to reduce the cost and hassle of moving goods. As a result, freight services play an essential role in the global economy by enabling businesses to move goods quickly and efficiently.

 

What are the 4 main types of freight transportation?
There are four main types of freight transportation: trucking, rail, water, and air. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Trucking is the most common form of freight transportation due to its flexibility. 

Trucks can travel on any road and easily change routes to avoid traffic delays. However, trucks are also the most expensive option and can be subject to weather-related delays. Rail is cheaper than trucking, but it is less flexible since trains must follow set routes. Water transport is the slowest option, but it is often the most economical choice for shipping large quantities of goods. Finally, airfreight is the fastest option but also the most expensive. 

When choosing a freight carrier, businesses must weigh each option’s relative costs and benefits to find the best solution for their needs.

What does FTL and LTL mean?
Shippers can choose between two main methods when transporting goods by truck: full truckload (FTL) and less than truckload (LTL). As the names suggest, FTL involves shipping goods on a full truck (or almost full), while LTL consists of shipping goods on a truck that is only partially full. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages, and the best option for a given shipment will depend on several factors.

FTL is the best option for high-value or time-sensitive shipments, while LTL is the best for low-value or less time-sensitive shipments. However, there are many other factors to consider when choosing between FTL and LTL, so shippers should always consult with a logistics expert to determine the best option for their needs.
