Freight Transport -Use Of Road Freight Transport

There are a number of means available for transporting goods using freight transport. One can send their cargo through air freight, a seaport to deliver the goods, through the train or, use a road freight transport. The choice depends largely on the budget, the type of goods and the delivery schedule.

There are several benefits associated with the use of road freight transport. In terms of speed, road freight transport is not restricted to the schedules of trains and ships and also quicker than air freight at times because air cargo takes more time to clear customs and to prepare necessary documents for transit.

The packaging requirements for road freight transport is lesser when compared to air and ship transport. The access to high speed roads and connectivity to remote areas is another advantage that works in favour of road freight transport. A vast majority of freight transport depends on the road journey for the final mile fulfilment.
