Long Haul Trucking
Long haul trucking involves drivers transporting freight hundreds or thousands of miles from their origin to their ultimate destination. The truck drivers are majorly responsible for the freight, including regular inspection before and during the shipping process to ensure that it is in great shape.
So, What Are the Benefits of Long Haul Trucking?
Convenience- Long haul trucking is a great shipping option, especially when handling large quantities of freight or when looking to transport many items at once. A truck will seamlessly travel across hundreds of miles, moving goods from their origin to destination points.
Safety- The US Department of Transportation requires long-haul truck drivers to make regular stops, relax and take a break from driving. They are also required to provide proof reflecting the breaks, breakdowns, or any other occurrences throughout the shipping process. This makes long-haul trucking a safer option compared to other shipping options, whether drivers might disregard the shipping breaks or end up taking shorter breaks than required.
Regular Inspection- Long-haul truck drivers are sure to inspect their cargo before and after loading to ensure that it is well packaged and secured. They also check to ensure that it is well secured and will not move or damage during hauling. The truck is also thoroughly inspected to ensure that it is well serviced and ready for the task.
