Freight Tips

20+ years of knowledge and experience in

the logistics and freight industry! Why not take advantage of that?!

Here are some tips...

(LTL) or (TL)?

With regard to transportation.. What is LESS-THAN-TRUCKLOAD (LTL) and TRUCKLOAD (TL)? What is the difference?



This refers to shipping an item that is relatively small and will not take up the entirety of the trailer. You pay for the amount of space you take up, not the entire truck.

By far this is a most popular type of freight transportation, and it's the most cost-effective, reliable and timely service because your shipment shares a truck with other LTL freight shipments.



If you are shipping a large enough load, you may need an entire truck.

This service is ideal for commodities that are unpackaged or may require refrigeration, climate control, flatbeds or other special accommodation for oversized or overweight shipments. Truckload shipping is not the least expensive transportation option, but it can be much faster than LTL freight.


At TriStar, we will guide you to choose the one that best suits your business need.

Land, Sea or Air Freight?
