If you need to move something big or a large number of smaller items over a large distance, then a haulage company might be what you need.

Road haulage is an industry in itself, drivers work either independently or via agents and freight carriers to move loads that are too big and heavy for vans or other transport vehicles. Lorries are also widely used internally by large corporations (such as supermarkets) to transport large amounts of goods within their supply chains, often on pallets or in containers.

Your Freight Delivery
Before you get your goods hauled you should make some preparations to ensure you get yourself the best quote and protect yourself in the unlikely event that your cargo is damaged.

Check – Inspecting your delivery pre & post transit is important. It lets you discern whether or not it gets damaged during the journey.

Weights and measures – Knowing the size and weight of your shipment can help you receive the best quotes from haulage companies. This will help freight firms know what type of vehicle is required for your delivery job.

Package – Securing and wrapping your goods will help to make sure they aren’t damaged during transit; it will also help with packing transports tightly. You may want to use pallets to transport a large amount of smaller goods.

If you’re making a commercial delivery, ensure that the proper labelling and documentation goes with your delivery, this should usually be carried by the driver and signed off at the point of delivery.

If you’re in search of a freight company then it might be difficult to know what to look for. Shiply can help you meet your haulage and freight needs by matching you to transporters based on your haulage need.
