What are the Different Types of Road Freight Transport?
Curtain Sided Transportation
Curtain sided trucks are the most used type of vehicles for general road haulage. These types of trucks are versatile and offer both the protection of a box truck or van and the flexibility of a flatbed.
Flatbed transportation is generally used when the requirement is to move large pieces of equipment/machinery, building suppliers or containers. This is because it allows cranes and forklifts to load goods. Therefore, it is great for quick and easy loading and provides more weight capability than other options.
Box Truck Transportation
Box trucks are ideal for moving cargo that is sensitive to the weather due to its large box like metal structure. However, goods must be loaded up and down through the back doors of the vehicle.
Temperature Controlled Transportation
For cargo that requires a special temperature-controlled environment, these types of trucks are a great solution. With a built-in refrigeration system, it helps keep the products at the desired temperature level throughout the overall transportation process.
Car-carrying transportation is capable of transporting cars with efficiency.
