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.
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.
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?
