Motor Freight Definition
Motor freight are commodities moved from their origin to destination via a truck. They can range from commercial and residential goods that cannot be transported by carriers such as FedEx or UPS carriers due to freight size and weight factors. It can be done as less than truckload, partial or full truckload shipping.
What is Motor Freight Trucking?
It involves transporting motor freight from the warehouse or distribution hub to the end customer or destination. It is mainly facilitated by freight brokers who play the crucial role of linking their shipper customers to motor carriers. Together with the shipper, the freight broker analyzes and finalizes the truck freight quote, which will be paid to the carrier after a successful shipping and delivery service.
The hack is to work with reliable shipping companies such as Heavy Equipment Transport for quick, reliable, and affordable services. We have invested in a state-of-the-art fleet and professional logisticians who have been in the industry for decades. With us, you are assured of nothing less than quality motor freight trucking services.
Minimizing Motor Freight Damage
The first step to successful motor freight transportation is selecting a reliable shipping company with an incredible reputation for excellent shipping services. This is because a shipper loses so much more than money when it comes to damaged goods-it can ruin your relationships with your customers, your reputation, and ratings. Some of the measures freight companies take to prevent freight damage include:
Proper Packaging: Invest in quality packaging materials and enough time to protect your mobile freight from damage and loss throughout the hauling process.
Proper Pelleting: Ensure that the pallets are structurally strong and the cargo weight is evenly distributed, and the entire unit well secured.
Precise Labeling: Your package label should be accurate, visible, and informative. The bill of lading should also complete outlining the nature and condition of the freight.
