A full truckload (FTL) shipment is a type of shipment that fills an entire truck or trailer, typically used for larger quantities of goods that require a dedicated vehicle for transportation. In a full truckload shipment, the cargo is loaded onto the truck at the origin and typically transported directly to the destination without any stops or transfers along the way. This type of shipment is commonly used for transporting large or heavy items, bulk goods, or sensitive cargo such as perishable or fragile goods.
