Partial truckload (PTL)
What is PTL?
PTL stands for Partial Truckload shipping. Partial truckload is a combination of LTL and PTL. Partial truckload can be considered an option under specific circumstances – if, for instance, a shipper needs significant space inside the truck but at the same time, it doesn’t need to fill the truck entirely. PTL shipping is recommended if you, as a shipper, need more volume that you would need for LTL but still not enough for PTL.
