Freight Hauler Definition
Also known as a freight carrier, a freight hauler transports commodities from one place to another on behalf of a business, individual, or enterprise. They can be an international shipping company, a rail line, or a trucking company.
What is the Difference Between a Freight Hauler and Forwarder?
Freight forwarders do not have the vessels required for the transportation process. All they do is sign a carriage contract with their clients (shippers) then find the actual freight haulers for the job.
In most cases, freight haulers have their own chartered vessels, which they use to transport cargo to and from various ports or transportation hubs. For instance, Heavy Equipment Transport is a professional freight hauler boasting state-of-the-art shipping equipment for all shipping needs. Our fleet is frequently serviced, maintained, and operated by an experienced team of hauling experts with years of experience in the transportation and logistics industry.
Factors to Consider When Choosing a Freight Hauler
Quality and Pricing - Of course, pricing is one factor that most shippers consider when choosing a freight hauling company. All the same, it is essential that you consider the quality of their services while at it. While high rates do not automatically translate to incredible services, be careful not to over go quality for low prices.
Range of Services Provided - Pay attention to what services the freight hauling company provides and compare to your business transportation needs. Trust Heavy Equipment Transport to handle all your shipping needs, thereby saving you the extra cost and hassle of dealing with multiple freight haulers.
Reliability and Timely Delivery - Your business performance and customer satisfaction depend on the timely shipping and delivery of your cargo to its accurate destination.
