Road Freight

Interloc handles your parcel delivery with the professionalism and thoroughness that you can expect from the leading logistics supplier in the world.

Less than truckload shipping (LTL) is used for the transportation of small freight or when freight doesn’t require the use of an entire trailer. This shipping method can be used when freight weighs between 30 and 15,000 Kilograms. There are several benefits to shipping via LTL.

Benefits of LTL shipping

  • Reduces costs – When booking an LTL shipment, you only pay for the portion of the trailer used. The rest of the cost is covered by the other occupants of the trailer’s space.
  • Increases security – Most LTL shipments are packaged onto pallets before being loaded onto a truck.
  • Tracking – Interloc offers tracking capabilities to monitor the progress of your shipments
