Road or freight transport haulage is ideal for items that are too large or heavy for traditional parcel services. It can be an affordable alternative for parcels, above the size and weight limits of parcel shipping.
Options for Road Haulage
There are several haulage options, including groupage or pallet delivery, bulk or container haulage, and express haulage. You can also use a freight forwarder should you need to haul freight internationally.
Choosing a Freight Haulier
Measure your freight shipment to determine the sort of service you require and then contact your chosen freight haulier or broker to transport them. When deciding which carrier to use, remember to check their authority, cargo insurance, and feedback or references.
Preparing your Freight for Transport
Freight goods cannot just be put in a box and shipped; you must prepare your freight correctly. There can be very specific packaging and labeling requirements for freight parcels. We recommend asking your haulier for instructions to prevent damage to your goods.
Complete Your Shipment
You will be responsible for packaging, loading, and unloading your shipment. Although your carrier may assist, you should be prepared to handle your goods at the pickup and delivery locations.
