There are many different options available and how to get your products from point a to point b;
traditional dock to dock deliveries, lift gate deliveries, inside deliveries, residential deliveries,
expedited deliveries, less-than-truckload (LTL), or full truck load deliveries.
Dock to Dock
Dock to Dock deliveries involves picking up goods from one warehouse and delivering them to the next.
Typically this is where a warehouse is storing goods and then distributes them to a company distribution
center which will then distribute the goods to their stores.
Lift Gate Deliveries
Lift gate deliveries involve the driver getting the freight out of the truck for you if you lack a
loading dock or any other means to lift the freight out of the truck.
Inside delivery involves bringing a delivery into a specific location such as an office in a building.
Residential deliveries involve bringing a shipment directly to a persons’ home.
Expedited delivery is a shipment option where you receive your order quicker than normal, maybe in a
couple days rather than weeks.
LTL shipping is the shipping of relatively small freight. Less than truckload carriers collect freight
from various shippers and consolidate that freight onto enclosed trailers for line haul to the delivering
terminal or to a hub terminal where the freight will be further sorted and consolidated for additional
Full Truck Load Deliveries (FTL)
Full truck load deliveries involve directly moving an exclusive freight shipment to a break-bulk facility
of an LTL carrier.
Factors to consider
What are you shipping? How do you know which service you need? How long will it take to get where you
want it to go?
How often will your freight change hands? Will you be able to track my order?
How far will you be able to ship your goods? Will it require other modes of transportation to ship your
goods? Do you need to be close to a major transportation corridor airport or ocean freight facilities?
Do you require close proximity to rail service? What will the transportation costs be to move products
from the warehouse to your customer?
Will you require any of the following?
- Ultra clean storage
- Cold storage
- Inventory management
- Product labeling
- Order fulfillment
- Inventory reporting
It is important to evaluate mode of transportation, how much your shipping, fuel costs, and. In today’s
market, fuel cost has become a major factor.
When looking for the right transportation company for your company, it is important to figure out your
needs and see what companies have to offer. Check out multiple companies and ask questions about how
they will help your company and see if other businesses have used them and what they have to say about
them. You will be able to judge if they are right for you or not.
