Yes, haulage refers to the transporting of goods via road or rail and freight is the transportation of goods via land, sea, and air, for example importing and exporting to or from another country.
What types of haulage are there?
There are many types of haulage available to manufacturers, wholesale companies and retail companies depending on where the goods are going and the type of goods, these include freight haulage, specialist haulage, heavy haulage, container haulage and local and national domestic haulage.
What is heavy haulage?
The term heavy haulage is referring to extremely large and heavy objects that need to be transported from one place to another but are too large for road travel. These objects require experienced drivers in specialist vehicles designed to take heavier loads.
What is container haulage?
This is when goods are transported from A to B in a secured container loaded onto the back of a lorry. You will have likely seen footage of the large ships carrying hundreds of these containers across the oceans.
Why would I need haulage services?
Haulage services are necessary for the safe and secure transportation of heavy, unusual, or large volume cargo. It is more cost-effective to transfer one large load rather than multiple smaller loads for customers who frequently need to move heavy or unusual cargoes.
