Shippers Definition

A shipper is a company or a person who bears the responsibility to transport goods or products from one point to another. A shipper is also referred to as a consignor-because he tenders the product to the product carrier. In the heavy equipment industry, a shipper is one who supplies/sells the product, and has a responsibility to deliver it to a heavy transport or hauling company. This means that a shipper can be a seller or a person who exports goods between countries.

Why a Shipper is Important in Heavy Equipment Industry

At Heavy Equipment Transport, we have conducted business with shippers all over the U.S and beyond. As carriers, we appreciate the value of shippers in the heavy equipment transport industry and cycle. Shippers do not necessarily have the resources needed to transport products over the different states.

However, by working together with heavy trucking companies, a client gets their equipment on time, and in its original high quality state. With the increased use of technology, it has become easier to reach shippers, and to reach an agreement for the delivery of one's desired equipment.
