Affordable Interstate and Cross Country Delivery to Marshallton, DE
The fastest-growing method of domestic shipping is undoubtedly intermodal transportation. When it comes to intermodal transport, trucking and rail are used in tandem to move goods, with trucks picking up and delivering the goods at both ends, while the long journey is carried out by train.
Many people have incorrectly assumed that intermodal transportation is more expensive, slower, and more prone to damage than other modes of transportation.
Here are some common intermodal misconceptions:
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 interstateÂ 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.
Small businesses face the challenge when transporting their goods to retailers, distributors, or customers across the country. The common modes of transport, including trucks, rails, and ships, are unnecessarily extensive and costly for small businesses. They often sell large products with lighter weights, and standard transportation doesnâ€™t provide efficient solutions.
Less-than-truckload (LTL) freight is a targeted service that solves the challenge of small businesses needing to reduce their transportation cost while offering larger trucks for their light in weight products.
This article dives deep into Less-Than-Truckload Freight and discusses everything you need to know about it.
