Part load transport

DFDS truck media library

What does part load mean?

A part load shipment varies in size and is often difficult to categorise. Even though demand for part load transport is high, it can be surprisingly difficult to find a company willing to carry out part load transport at a reasonable rate.

It often means driving a half-empty vehicle to carry out the job if you don’t have enough items to fill it, which comes at a cost for the transport provider. In some cases, even if you do find a transport company offering part load delivery, you will have to expect long waiting times for pick-up or delivery.
