What is FTL Transport?

FTL transport is short for Full Truck Load Transport. This means that a truck is fully loaded with goods coming from one company or exporter. In general, these are relatively cheap shipments because they are easier to plan than a half-full truck.

Difference between FTL and LTL Transport

Whereas FTL transport stands for Full Truck Load Transport, LTL means Less then Truck Load Transport. Thus, FTL means a full truck and LTL means a truck not fully loaded. In most cases, an LTL transport will be supplemented with a load from another company, so that the truck will still travel with a full trailer. The driver then makes one or more extra stops along the way.

Fast delivery times

Your FTL transports are delivered superfast by EASY Road Transport! We apply a 2-day transit time between loading and unloading (Monday loading = Wednesday unloading). The average transit time is therefore 3 days. For LTL transports, this can sometimes be an extra day. Because we go back and forth with our trailers every day, we can load and unload any day of the week.   

Corona Virus

Our EASY Roaders are keeping an eye on all regulations that are applied in countries related to Covid-19. Our trailers, drivers, and transports are executed according to the rules that apply at the loading and unloading address.

FTL transports to and from the UK have become a lot more complicated since Brexit. We get that! That is why we try to make this as EASY as possible for you. Our EASY Roaders are up to date on the current necessities and regulations. They are ready to answer all your questions!
