Difference between Teradata Utilities and ETL Process

I am sort of confused in differentiating between teradata utilities such as FastLoad and MLoad that are used for loading external data into teradata tables and ETL process. I understand ETL processing is Extract Transform and Load. But what exactly is involved in etl processing.Thanks.Pervez Ahmed

The process of ETL using Teradata utilities will be ELTExtract, Load and Transformso, the loading will be done through Fast load, Multi load and the transofmations can be done using Bteq scripts :-)
