Freight/Shipping Company Definition
Professional freight shipping companies are integral parts of the supply chain. In most cases, these companies link raw materials or finished products from the manufacturers to distributors and retail clients.
What Do Freight Companies Do?
Shipping is mainly carried out in five different ways- either by road, rail, ocean, air, or intermodal shipment. A professional shipping company should be experienced and knowledgeable of all these shipping methods. Today, shipping companies do more than haul cargo from one point to another. Their services are more sophisticated, providing valuable logistics solutions across the supply chains. Besides transportation, here are other functions of a shipping company:
Factors to Consider When Choosing a Freight Company
Pricing - Compare the pricing from different shipping companies and go for the one whose prices are in line with your budget. All the same, be sure not to compromise good services for low costs. For instance, Heavy Equipment Transport has been reputed for offering premium services at the most affordable prices in the industry.
Reliability and Convenience - Your business performance is dependent on the timely and safe delivery of your clients' freights to various destinations. At Heavy Equipment Transport, we have our customers' best interests at heart. As such, we go above and beyond to ensure that your cargo gets to its final destination without delay.
Asset Vs. Non-Asset Companies - Asset-based heavy shipping companies have invested in a wide range of shipping equipment for all types of loads. Heavy Equipment Transport has a state-of-the-art fleet to meet your shipping needs. With a non-asset company, there will be more hands handling your cargo which increases the chance for errors.
