How can truck freight shipping work for you?
Freight or cargo is a reference for large quantities of goods that are prepped for delivery. Freight is ordered and loaded onto crates or pallets depending on the quantity of goods that have been ordered. From there the freight moves through various transport modes until it reaches its final destination. Shipping freight is the process of transporting various merchandise, cargo, and goods from one source to another.
Truck freight is an excellent choice for shipping and is one of the most cost-effective ways to ship on a domestic level. Outside of these obvious benefits, what are some other advantages to using truckload carriers? Here are just some of the ways truck shipping may be the ideal choice for you:
Truck shipping is a trusted form of reliable and direct delivery
It’s gained this trust through its consistency to deliver the proper goods at the appropriate times. There are less instances that occur with truck shipping, such as warehousing fees, packaging, and repackaging. There is no comparison to the time it takes for these seemingly small services to how efficient truck shipping can be.
It’s the most cost-efficient way of shipping
Truckload carriers can make it easy for you to transport goods. Truck transportation can be much more efficient in transporting your goods and much less expensive than transporting your goods via air which can have delays in transit. Since truckload shipping is a direct route there are fewer fees to pay for.
It saves you money as well as time
Because truck shipping is the most popular form of shipping freight throughout the country, it’s easy to prove just how fast your delivery will arrive. During transit for other forms of shipping, there are stops and certain safety restrictions that have to be met. Along with these restrictions come warehousing, packaging, and unpackaging fees. All of these things cost time and money but truckload shipping has minimal to no stops during its transit. Therefore, it ends up saving you some time and hassle in the long run.
Truckload shipping offers amazing versatility
There are several methods of truckload shipping that help make this form of shipping the most reliable way to achieve great results. We ship a variety of truck freight ranging in size, value, and contents. Have you ever wondered how perishable food items manage to stay fresh traveling from across the country? Well, our trucks are capable of transporting time-sensitive goods to their destination in record speeds. That’s why things like produce and dairy are able to stay fresh during the commute.
You have the ability to track your shipment anywhere in the country
At Vital Worldwide, we want our clients to be well informed. This will allow you to see where your freight is at all times and whether or not there are any stops during transit. Having the ability to know where your shipment helps to ensure the level of safety that your goods are kept.
There are some things you should look into before you decide which method of trucking you will use. There are two forms of truck shipping; less than truckload (LTL) shipping and full truckload (TL) shipping. Different types of cargo will be the deciding factor on which method you may choose.
Less than truckload shipping
Less than truckload (LTL) shipping allows multiple people to share space on the same truck for their shipments. Due to the number of different companies renting space, it makes less than truckload shipping a more cost-efficient way of delivering items. The less than truckload (LTL) shipping route is ideal for businesses who have freight shipments less than 15,000 pounds.
Ensuring your items are safe during transit, the cargo is packaged and maneuvered onto crates and pallets. This keeps your items safe as it's being handled through multiple trailers before it is delivered.
Full Truckload Shipping
If less than truckload shipping doesn’t meet your requirements, then full truckload shipping might be for you. At Vidal Worldwide, we will use full truckload (TL) shipping whenever:
- The order requirements meet the capacity of a full truckload.
- The cargo is a high priority shipping order
- If the weight is over 15,000 pounds, which is too much weight for a less than full truckload (LTL)
- Or simply if you decide you would like to use this form of shipping.
Reliable delivery times
Arrival times are very reliable with full truckload (TL) shipping, shipments typically travel on only one truck with one destination, so delivery time estimates are often extremely accurate. Because of this, full truckload shipping is much faster than less than truckload shipping.
At Vital Worldwide Logistics, we understand how important your shipments are to you. Our trucks are fully equipped with climate-controlled trailers. We also have highly trained drivers that are kept up to date with safety regulations. We ensure you that your goods will remain protected throughout transit. The chance of possible damage to items during transit also decreases since there is less handling of the freight at multiple stops. Less loading and unloading of the cargo lowers the risk of damage and breaking fragile shipments.
