We understand produce shipping and other agricultural freight.
We ship small loads and large loads...for LESS!
We'll serve as your discount freight brokers for small loads as well as your large loads. Whether your LTL load is large or small, heavy or light, rugged or fragile, Handy Freight Brokers' Less Than Truckload (LTL) division can take care of it for you.
Our LTL Division is run just like our FTL Division, except for the fact we partner with various LTL trucking companies with the freight shipping infrastructure to handle your smaller loads instead of full truckloads. For example an LTL shipment also known as a partial which is usually a range from 1 pallet of product to half a truck with variations in prices. To give you an example, hauling a car from one place to another would be an LTL shipment – there's room on the truck for more!
Here are a list of the trailers from the FTL division but with the max capacity for an LTL:
Van: These trailers can usually haul anywhere from 1 pallet which is about 4 feet to the max for a LTL/partial load is about 24 feet for a 48 Van and usually about the same for a 53 Van with maybe one or two more feet to spare.
Vented Van: These trailers have almost the exact same size as a Van but the partial for these guys are usually if someone needs a little bit of produce that doesnt need frozen just cooled by air.
Logistical Vans: These trailers also have the same space as the last two Vans but with straps on the inside to keep things in their place if they are not palletized for example some chairs that you just have to get moved but with nothing else to put with them to hold them in place, well that's where the straps come in they will hold your chairs to the side of the trailer with no movement.
Flatbed: These trailers have a space amount of 22 ft max these trailers have tarps so no matter what amount of space you need from 4 feet to 22 feet your commodity can be covered from the rain tarp sizes are 4 6 and 8 ft so your machinery will be safe, no matter where you choose to go with it.
Stepdeck: These trailers have two ways of hauling your partial because they have 2 decks the one on top is 11 feet so if your partial is 11 feet or less then they can put it on there, or if it is a little bit longer then they can put it on bottom with 42 feet, these trailers also have tarps.
Reefer: At this time we no longer provide Refrigerated LTL service.
