A partial load is a load that does not occupy the entire cargo space of a truck. Most of these are relatively small jobs that are offered in transport exchanges as part of a total load. As part of a partial load, the truck is not fully loaded, the orders are usually paid much lower than full loads. As a rule, several partial loads are therefore connected to a larger load and served several customers at the same time.
However, a partial charge can also occur if a load is too large for the means of transport. In this case, the load must be subdivided into several partial loads in order to deliver them by different means of transport.
