Road Freight Service for Business

Businesses rely heavily on road freight services for transportation of goods from one part of the city to another part, and across different cities – freight services are usually categorized by air, sea and land transport services. In Australia transportation is facilitated by roads, ships, by air, by rail but most of the transportation is done by roads. Air shipping is only used for express and premium deliveries that have to be delivered, instantly.

The million miles of highway system in Australia highly developed, most of the freight services are conducted via these highways, nearly 60% of the Australian freight services are carried by trucks.

Which type of road freight services is the most reliable?

As we mentioned above, freight transported via trucks is the most common type of road freight in Australia. For very long distances, however, the railway is used for transportation of goods and other material – that accounts for 10% of freight services. UPS and FED EX take a huge portion of cargo and package delivery in Australia.

Trucking is the most reliable type of road freight as it is used for transportation of both commercial and industrial goods, throughout the country. For domestic transportation, trucking is the most reliable method; and air shipping is used mostly for premium and express deliveries.

When we talk about road freight services; Movit has over years of experience in logistics and transport – they make it sure to deliver your commercial, industrial, construction-related material and goods, on time. Fossil fuel emissions and sustainability are among important issues for road freight, our partner companies give it utmost importance, and tries its best to play its part in the conservation of the environment, and its sanctity.

Reducing air pollution, congestion on roads, and due to limited parking spaces; efforts are being taken and more efforts are required to establish a cohesive strategy to achieve “greener” logistics services.

With the prospect of the rising e-commerce demands and more and more people converting to shopping online through websites and social media platforms; road freight services, have become increasingly in demand and popular. Trucking being the heavily used one and the most reliable system- efforts are also being put in to make use of technology and computers to make the transportation process more seamless for the drivers.

How to pick the best freight service for my company?

Road freight can often be combined with air and sea transport and logistics to transfer and carry your goods, or manufacturing material; whether you are looking for transferring manufacturing material or a door to door delivery, there are usually two options to choose from. LTL and FTL road freight; which essentially means less truckload and FTL means full truckload.

For small and medium-sized and budding businesses LTL freight is considered the most effective – this way businesses share truckload/ space and transportation costs with other businesses.

For bigger companies with a heavy truckload, going for FTL works – a full truckload carries your goods exclusively and also, high risk and delicate goods that can’t be shipped with another type of goods should be transported through FTL. FTL, for obvious reasons, is costly than LTL and only bigger companies that want to ship exclusively – use this system.

Basically, it comes down to the budget of your company and the type of goods, and how fast you want to transport and ship. Every company and business has different needs and requirements.

LTL takes more time for delivery, as there could be multiple stops, pick and drop stops and packing, repacking requirements. For smaller cargo units, LTL is preferred. Businesses that deliver delicate goods, FTL option works.

Road freight is the most cost-effective and reliable method of delivering goods nationally, and road freight has a reliable schedule - the quality of highways and roads is way better in Australia than the rest of the world, and also, road freight can use multiple stops to deliver goods mid-way. It’s a cost-effective and very flexible option, as compared to air logistics
