Whether you’re shipping goods in New York, New Jersey, or anywhere else in the U.S., the benefits of shipping via LTL can significantly impact your bottom line. Less than truckload (LTL) service is a highly-effective method of moving freight that weighs anywhere from 100 to 10,000 pounds. Most importantly, LTL service doesn’t fill the entire truck — as the name suggests.
At OnTrack Freight Systems, we offer fast, next-day, and affordable LTL service throughout the New York and New Jersey metro area. We offer fast pickups and a host of other solutions to help you manage your shipments with the highest level of certainty.
And when you choose to ship with OnTrack, you’ll enjoy all of the following benefits of LTL service. Let’s take a closer look at the key benefits of shipping via LTL, and don’t hesitate to reach out to OnTrack today to learn more.
Cost Is a Key Benefit of LTL Service
Cost is the primary benefit of LTL service. Costs are minimized because you are only paying for the space that you need for your goods. Because shipments from multiple businesses are combined in one truckload, the cost is split between those businesses based on the percentage of the load that is being shipped.
This is based on the weight of the goods and the volume of the space that it will take up on the trailer. And, it is more economical than parcel shipping because it requires less handling. If you’re looking to create savings, partnering with OnTrack Freight Systems for LTL service can make a noticeable impact on your bottom line.
LTL Service Lessens the Environmental Impact
Being able to reduce carbon emissions is important to many companies. By using LTL freight options, you are reducing carbon emissions by reducing the number of trucks on the road. This reduction is due to the fact that trailers are being filled to capacity, rather than moving half-empty.
LTL Service Reduces Risk
For smaller loads, it makes sense to compare the risks of parcel delivery versus LTL service. Although FTL might be the most secure, LTL is far superior to parcel delivery for smaller loads. This is because your business is in charge of palletizing and containing your goods.
Because you are in charge of how your goods are packed and moved as a unit, it minimizes the chances of loss or damage because of the pallet or container you have created. Pallets and/or crates protect your shipment from general wear and tear from handling and contact with other freight in the trailer.
LTL Opens the Door to More Servicing Options
Because LTL shipments are smaller, you’ll enjoy access to a myriad of different servicing options to meet your unique needs. Some of the most common LTL servicing options offered at OnTrack Freight Systems include:
- Inside delivery
- Liftgate service
- Special handling
- Residential deliveries
- And more upon request. Please speak to your account representative for pricing.

Real-time tracking is available, and you will receive in-transit updates for pickups, deliveries, and notifications for any delays encountered during processing.
Reduce Warehousing Costs with Utilizing LTL Services
Another cost-saving benefit of shipping via LTL is the ability to reduce warehousing costs. Because you can send more shipments via LTL, you can reduce the need of stockpiling inventory or products at a single time. In doing so, you can reduce your warehousing requirements to create extra savings for the business.
