When traditional parcel services cannot move your item due to size or weight limitations, road or freight transportation is ideal. uShip has an extensive network of freight transportation companies ready to bid on your delivery. Create your listing with information about the delivery, including origin and destination locations, and any additional information logistics companies may want to know. Then, road haulage companies place competing bids to haul your freight.
ROAD HAULAGE OPTIONS
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 delivery to determine the sort of service you require and include these details on your listing. This will ensure the freight transportation companies will know what you need when providing a quote. When deciding which carrier to use, remember to check their authority, cargo insurance, and feedback or references through their transporter profile on uShip.
FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION PREPARATION
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 FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION
You will be responsible for packaging, and in some cases, loading, and unloading your delivery. Although your courier may assist, you should be prepared to handle your goods at the collection and delivery locations.
