Choosing The Right Shipping Method

When we look up the word “choice” in the dictionary, the word is defined as “the act of choosing: the act of picking or deciding between two or more possibilities”. By choice, you have made your way through some of the biggest challenges you have faced in your industry. One of the toughest challenges you may have had to endure in your business is the transport of goods.

With the constant demands of goods, heavy equipment, supplies, and more, it can be difficult to determine what type of transportation service you will need for each instance. Fortunately, there are ways to determine what type of transportation service will be suitable for each situation.

LTL Trucking

If you are looking to transport any type of goods and supplies across the globe but you do not need to use an entire trailer, LTL(Less than Truck Load) shipping can be at the top of your list. The specifications on an LTL freight trailer will allow your transportation carrier to transport numerous LTL shipments by means of one truck. The LTL freight trailer specifications will also allow you to meet all the needs of your customers and transport the goods to the destination.

Dry Freight

Dry freight, dry van, etc. trucking will be covered trailers that have a flat deck. A dry freight or dry van trailer is one of the most used types of trailer shipments. This type of trucking is beneficial for those who need to transport goods that are fragile and need special care. If you need to transport goods that need to be stored in crates or containers, dry freight trucking should be one of the options you consider. This type of trucking can also be the number one option when you need to transport goods that are experiencing periods of thunderstorms that bring heavy rain.

Full Truckload(FTL)

When you need to transport goods that will occupy the entire trailer, FTL trucking will be a reliable option. FTL trucking will consist of shipments that are large in weight and/or large in volume. The shipment’s weight limit will be proportional to the vehicle’s weight, in addition to the laws and regulations that have been established.

When it is time to decide on the right type of transportation service for your shipment of goods, equipment, supplies, etc., what choice will you make?
