FTL, LTL, Last Mile, Multi-modal, Rail
Surface Transport Logistics is an important enabler and foundation for the development of modern logistics, a vital component for the development of regional logistics, and a key for the development of regional manufacturing and commercial circulation businesses. Modern Surface logistics have developed and integrated with the changing landscape on the supply side.

At CJ Darcl, Surface Transport Logistics is at the advanced stage of Comprehensive Transportation Solutions, which balances different transport modes, works together according to function, and organically integrates to build an advanced surface transport logistics network.

Full-Truck Load Solutions
If you choose to comprehensively manage your FTL transportation solutions, you do not need to invest in your own vehicles and related personnel.

Full Truck Load (FTL) services are a stronghold of ours and form a part of the core offerings at the CJ Darcl Freight division, including end-to-end multimodal transportation with loading services catered through owned and hired fleet for bulk goods movement on a Pan India basis. Options include a customized or specialized fleet for meeting customers’ specific requirements. As a Full Truck Load service provider, we can assess your individual business needs to match with a carrier that can accommodate your shipment deadline in the most cost-effective way possible.

Less-Than-Truckload Solutions
Less-than-truckload freight shipping is crucial to everyday commerce. It plays a critical role in transporting essentials and inventory to manufacturers and distributors across the country. That’s why it’s important to have a carrier that operates efficiently, with flexible options and complete shipment visibility.

Many times, deciding whether to transport one truck or a full truckload is a difficult choice. There are many factors that get involved in freight transportation, and by evaluating each factor, you can find the most efficient method based on your specific needs. Factors such as cargo dimensions (length, width, height, etc.), cargo classification (Freight class, or NMFC (National Motor Freight Classification) are the shipping industry standards and grouping system developed by the non-profit National Motor Freight Traffic Association. They are used for interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce movement of LTL (less than truckload) shipments, special services, etc. should all be considered when choosing a shipping method.

Both FTL and LTL are excellent options, but what are they? Transporting cargo that does not occupy the entire truck space is called transporting less than the truckload capacity (LTL) and transporting the truckload capacity (TL) occupies the space or weight limit of the entire trailer. Depending on the needs of your cargo, one option may be more appropriate than the other.

Last-Mile Delivery
The e-commerce industry is rapidly expanding, and the final stages of delivery, also known as last-mile delivery, are becoming increasingly challenging. A parcel is usually delivered during the day when the consumer is not at home, this is when the consumer does not have time to collect it. This poses a serious problem for delivery companies because the number of unmanned deliveries increases. Other challenges in last-mile delivery include minimizing costs, ensuring transparency, improving efficiency, and ensuring a smooth delivery.

Last-mile delivery has attracted the attention of many media houses and angel investors as the market is dominated by e-commerce giants. Companies are constantly experimenting with different methods to minimize the cost and inefficiency of last-mile delivery. There are many new innovations taking place in this industry.

Multi-Modal Solutions
Multimodal transport refers to logistics and freight processes that require multiple modes of transport. For example, freight may include rail, air, and truck carriers. These are the three modes of transport used in combination to complete the shipment. Multimodal transportation is handled by a single freight carrier, multimodal carrier, or provider. Providers rely on a network of small carriers or contractors to get the job done, but they are still a single contract process for shippers who choose multimodal transportation. Unlike intermodal transportation, multimodal transportation lets you handle cargo differently depending on the carrier in charge.

Benefits of multi-modal transportation
Communication : Multi-modal is a success over intermodal transportation due to excellent and clearer communication. Coordinating and communicating with one company over freight logistics is much easier and hassle-free, but coordinating with multiple companies results in inefficiency and delays in shipment.

Deadlines : Supply chain efficiency, logistics management, and customer satisfaction all depend on the order fulfillment on time. After all, Door-to-door means that the shipper and the carrier are on the same page for shipping and order fulfillment. Choosing multimodal shipping over intermodal shipping helps you reduce the risk of delays and maintain customer satisfaction levels.

Accessibility : Unless you’re shipping fragile cargo or any cargo across the ocean, which involves moving between ports, keeping the cargo in a container means it’s harder for carriers to reach. At the same time, the combination of different modes of transport shows that each has its own limitations.

Multimodal and intermodal transport will deliver goods to their destination. The question is: do you really need to limit each carrier’s access to transit options at the expense of delay?

With an intent of offering rail and multimodal services to customers and providing cost-effective transportation solutions with a lower carbon footprint, we ventured into the rail transportation business in the year 2007, by signing a concession agreement with Northern Railway for operating container trains on the Indian Railways network. We deliver optimized Multimodal Transportation solutions by combining transportation modes across road and rail. These modes include conventional as well as containerized railway options.

With robust infrastructure, state of the art technology to support all movements, CJ Darcl is the market leader in the FTL segment in terms of revenue for Fiscals 2022, 2021, and 2020 Specialized in the movement of large quantum of cargo or freight as per Law.

CJ Darcl in Indian Domestic Air Freight Industry

Indian Domestic Air Freight Industry
Air Freight allows the transportation of goods through an air carrier, either chartered or commercial. Goods shipped by air have the advantage of being shipped at high speed to their destination. This may prove advantageous when transportation is time-sensitive. In addition, freight transported by air freight passes through a higher level of security than other methods, making it one of the safest ways to transport goods.

Indian Air Freight Industry
Air Cargo logistics plays an important role in the country’s economic development. The airline, Air Cargo Terminal Operator, ground handling service, service providers, integrated express service providers, freight carriers, inland freight providers, and customs brokers are important participants in the entire air cargo supply chain. All these players together ensure that cargo is delivered on time and in full to its destination. For overseas cargo, cross-border regulators come into play such as customs.

Globally, more than one-third of the value of international trade is airlifted, which is why the air freight industry is considered a barometer of the health of the world economy. In India, Air Cargo industry has been growing steadily on the back of airport cargo infrastructure, digital infrastructure for cargo handling, and the development of collaborative partnership models wherein all stakeholders manage cargo multilaterally.

CJ DARCL Advantages for Air Cargo services

Advantages of using Air Cargo–
· Efficiency- Air freight is fast, especially when using direct services.
· Safety- Air freight is usually a better way to transport fragile goods, as if the goods are properly packed, they are less likely to be damaged than sea freight.
· Security– The shipment of cargo by air is tightly managed by security, so the chance of cargo being stolen is low
· Traceability- Flights are tracked, making it easier to track shipments and giving your business a sense of security.
· Value- Air freight is billed by weight, not quantity, so it is more cost-effective to send a small amount of freight by air than by sea.
· Less warehousing requirements– The clearance time for air freight is fast, and there’s generally less stock to unload than that for cargo ships, so customs clearance is fast, and the need for local warehousing is much lower.
The Air Freight industry is poised for high growth with expanding cargo capacity, digitization, and seamless integration with all stakeholders.
