Freight shipping key concepts to know

Full truckload

This is moving bulk loads that are large enough to vindicate the use of an entire trailer. This tends to be cost effective as it reduces the chances of freight damage with less handling.

Less than truckload

This type of freight is for customers that ship freight that is not a complete or full truckload but more than just a simple parcel.

Partial truckload

This gives you the option of splitting the cost with other shippers, preventing you from spending more cost that would have been incurred when shipped alone.

Intermodal

Transporting goods with this service uses a combination of shipping methods, whether air, rail, sea, or truck. This is used to lower down the cost of delivery from pickup to drop-off.

Expedited

This is in case of emergencies where the cargo has to be transported quickly. This is usually done by air.

What can be shipped through freight transportation?

Freight can be used to transport just about anything.

We at 1 Transport specialize in certain types of cargo such as automobiles offering various available options to ensure your goods arrive safely at the intended destination and in the right time.

Challenges faced by shippers using
freight shipping to move cargo

We understand these complications and challenges and we are prepared for anything. We customize and prepare measures to help with such situations so that you can avoid worrying and be entirely satisfied.

Delay costs

Customs and border exams, inspections, and other holds tend to result in delays which in turn leads to delay-related charges. We will ensure complete understanding of your needs and the potentially different delay charges in order to best negotiate a price for you versus other companies.

Cargo damage

It is not peculiar to find cargo damaged on arrival due to improper packing or storage. It is our job to make sure the load is properly secured in the container or plane or on the truck delivering it.

Unanticipated occurrences

These include strikes by port workers or the truckers which can happen at the origin or destination. This is bound to cause delays or other complications.

Lost containers

Ports contain a significant amount of containers stacked together at the terminals, and one or two might end up missing especially after being discharged. Looking for such a container in a large shelf of many multi colored ones may not be as easy as it seems.

Missing documents

Documents may be misplaced by shippers which is a standard human error. In such a case, complications arising after the release of the containers may lead to unintended delays.
