Motor freight transportation is an obligatory element in the chain of delivery of goods from the manufacturer to the consumer. Even when using sea, rail or air transport to the place of loading and warehouses or to the address of the consignee, the goods are transported by road.
In terms of delivery time, motor transportation loses only to air delivery. But they win in price. Plus in some areas only motor freight is available, as there are no other types of traffic.
What is transported by road and how?
There are no restrictions on goods for trucking. There are different types of cargo – general (FCL) and groupage (LCL). For the first type, the car is chartered by one customer. This method of transportation is beneficial if the quantity or volume of products fills the body by 70-100% or container motor transportation is organized.
Advantages of a general flight with Mitridat company:
- short terms;
- the car is delivered at the time specified by the client;
- the transport arrives at the end point exactly on schedule;
- all categories of products are transported – ordinary, oversized, dangerous, perishable, valuable, concrete, gasoline and other fuels and POLs;
- monitoring of the location of the car and constant communication with the driver is available;
- you can order forwarding services and cargo insurance.
The disadvantage of general transportation is that the price is higher than groupage cargo delivery.
Groupage cargo is formed from goods of several companies and private consignors at the warehouse of transport and logistics company. Parcels are sent when they are assembled in sufficient volume or weight to load the machine in a certain direction.
In the city of arrival, groupage cargo is delivered to the consolidation point. If a door-to-door delivery was ordered, they are delivered to the addresses of the recipients. Delivery price is divided proportionally between the senders.
The main advantage of LCL transportation is the ability to transport small consignments of goods at lower rates than by FCL.
The disadvantage of groupage is that only homogeneous goods can be transported. That is, it is impossible to load chemicals and products into one car at the same time. Also, perishables cannot be transported due to the unknown date of dispatch.
Only large trucking companies with well-organized logistics and large vehicle fleet are engaged in the transportation of groupage cargo. Otherwise, delivery times will be much more longer. These factors are especially important for the organization of cargo transportation between countries.
