Carriers Full Truckload (FTL) Shipping Omaha
The market is constantly changing and can be a challenge for customers needing full truckload services (FTL) and solutions. We work with our network of carriers to find capacity to handle your full truckload services shipping needs at competitive rates.
(FTL) Full truckload shipping Omaha is the movement of at least the amount of freight necessary to fill an entire semi-trailer or intermodal container. A truckload carrier is a trucking company that contracts an entire trailer-load to a single customer.
This is as opposed to a less than truckload (LTL) company that generally mixes freight from several customers in each trailer. An advantage FTL carriers have over LTL carriers is that the freight is never handled en route, whereas LTL shipments are unloaded and reloaded as necessary.
FTL Omaha carriers typically transport a semi-trailer full of freight directly from the shipper to the consignee. After the trailer is loaded the driver collects the required paperwork (i.e. bill of lading, invoice, and customs paperwork) and then departs with a fully-loaded trailer.
In most cases the driver proceeds directly to the consignee and delivers the freight. Occasionally, a driver will transfer the trailer to another driver who will drive the freight the rest of the way. FTL Omaha transit times are normally constrained by the driver’s availability according to hours of service regulations. FTL Omaha drivers transport freight at an average rate of 47 miles per hour.
Because FTL carriers are asked to ship a wide variety of items, and because different equipment and insurances are required for different kinds of freight, a truckload carrier will often specialize in moving a specific type of freight. There are also federal laws stating which types of freight can be shipped together in the same trailer.
