Road or freight transport haulage is an affordable option for large or heavy items that are unable to be shipped by traditional parcel services. It is a good alternative for parcels above the size and weight limits of parcel shipping.
There are multiple haulage options, including bulk or container haulage, groupage or pallet delivery, and express haulage. Should you need to haul freight internationally you would contact a Freight Forwarder.
The first step is to measure your freight shipment. Next, choose a freight hauler or freight broker. When deciding on a company remembers to check their authority, cargo insurance, and feedback or references.
It is important to prepare your freight correctly. There are specific packaging and labeling requirements for freight parcels. We recommend asking your hauler for instructions to prevent damage to your goods.
It is your responsibility to pack, load and unload your shipment. Although your transporter may assist, be prepared to handle your goods at the pickup and delivery locations.
