Services in the Long-Distance Freight Trucking industry can be segmented into two primary groups: truckload freight, or shipments weighing more than 4,536 kilograms, and less-than-truckload (LTL) freight, which includes shipments that weigh between 45 kilograms and 4,536 kilograms. Companies may specialize in just one of these services, though it is common for industry operators to provide both truckload and LTL services.
