Freight shipping is often the shipment of a large quantity of goods. However, less than truckload shipping (LTL) is the transportation of relatively small freight. All orders received before 1 pm EST Monday—Friday ship the same day, and all orders are shipped within 24 business hours of being received.
Freight is done mostly for commercial purposes. Freight is often cheaper than normal shipping, since its more inexpensive to transport larger amounts of goods rather than smaller ones.
