The aim of this work is to review the literature on full truck load transportation service procurement and identify the gaps from the points of view of researchers and practitioners. Full truck load procurement is particularly considered for review since it is encountered more in freight movement than others forms and also it has many challenges. A framework is developed to have a systematic review of literature and the findings are discussed in detail. Some key findings include the simplistic assumption of demand pattern, less focus on nonprice variables, a limited number of case studies, a lesser consideration of sustainability aspects and the lack of detailed studies on emerging economies.
