Direct freight is a growing industry that matches clients and trucking companies. It has enriched productivity of the transport system by ensuring cost effective transport of goods at a good price. The industry is a mixed bowl where everyone can get something for themselves as explained below;
Boost your Business
Clients can boost their businesses by transporting dangerous and hazardous goods within the shortest time possible. They are assured of having their goods delivered on time and that goods that were not meant to get in touch with the rest remain uncontaminated. You get to boost your business through lower transport costs.
Use of websites
There are Direct Freight websites that bring together clients, tracking companies and transport companies together. The website charges a fee to its user for them to access their client base for their use. Transport and tracking companies get to bid for work on the site. The client is the ‘boss’ at the site as they get to choose the bidder that speaks to them and their goods.
Direct freight has gone a long way to ensure that your cargo transit time is reduced and that there is reliability of shipment.
Brokers have been there for the longest time and increasing the cost of shipment with every sunrise. The new system eliminates brokers which mean the cost of transport is cheaper. A client gets to chose trucks and equipment that speaks to them and their company. Clients are so able to verify carriers, check insurance coverage of the carriers and verify the safety ratings of the carrier for themselves. These ensure that you as a client are safe and secure from any surprises.
Reduced transit time
Direct freight has gone a long way to ensure that your cargo transit time is reduced and that there is reliability of shipment. Less transit time for your goods means more money for the client as they are not surcharged on any eventualities. The transit time gives you as a client better transport control as your get to track your goods every step of the way.
Technology has come to help all in the direct freight business. Companies are able to coordinate their shipment loads to optimise their profits. With companies outsmarting each other by showing their technology use, the client on the other hand is benefiting. The client is able to rest easy while their good are on transit due to the shipping company technological muscle.
The industry keeps evolving due to new solutions and technological use which are constantly improving services and cost control.
