Inland freight

Inland freight

Inland freight is basic and essential to move goods locally, nationally, or internationally. And there are several considerations that must be taken into account to hire the most appropriate transportation service.

  • Type of goods (general, dangerous, perishable, oversized, or overweight).
  • The volume and weight of the packed goods (how many packages, type of packages, and their respective measures and weights).
  • Origin, destination, and if it is freight that complements a maritime or air import or export.
  • If it is fragile, stevedorable.
  • Does it require lashing or only transport with air suspension?
  • Level of urgency and budget.
  • Rail, truck, van, or just the space required for the size of the goods.

*FTL = “Full Truck Load” This term is used to refer to a service where a complete or dedicated truck is hired exclusively for the goods of a single customer.

Frequently Asked Questions

¿Do you still have open questions?

This depends on the type of freight that is contracted and the type of product that is transported. Example: 1 container of 40 ‘Shanghai – Manzanillo with a cost of USD $ 1500, can be hired by someone who transports dishwasher fibers with a value of USD $ 5000, can be hired by a customer that transports thousands of USB cables with a value USD $ 100,000.00. The freight is the same but the first customer pays a much higher freight percentage than the second.

You have to consider that at least you have to document 4 days before the departure date.

The advantage is that the cost is low. And the disadvantage is that it travels consolidated with another container, so the delivery can take from 2 to 4 days.
