A truck driver must know the type of freight they are transporting and whether that freight is interstate or intrastate. It can be hard to differentiate between the two types of freight, but we're here to help!
Intrastate and interstate significantly impact the types of loads you can transport and the equipment you need. Even though it's easier to start by only hauling intrastate, you'll have fewer options for loads and, as a result, less money to spend.
Most independent owner-operators and small fleets should begin with an interstate trucking company because it gives them more options and improves their success.
Thanks to tracking technologies, shippers can trace their freight at every stage of their trip. When using a TMS (transportation management system), you can have access to tracking and tracing capabilities.
Using this technology, you can monitor transportation costs, carrier performance, and market trends as you manage your supply chain. Supply chain management relies heavily on tracking shipments.
Many varieties of truck freight exist, each serving a specific purpose in transporting various sorts of truck freight across the United States.
There are many distinct types of freight trucks, from modest pickups and semi-trailers that can carry small to big loads to massive hauling trucks capable of carrying enormous freight.
