Timely and Safe Transportation by Road Freight

Road transportation is the most preferred mode of transportation in today’s transportation sector. Because it is more reliable and loads more than other types of transport. All kinds of transportation from the factory to the country are also made. Flexibility, ease of loading and unloading, frequent planned loading, door-to-door service, short delivery times are some of the reasons for the preference of road transport. Bad weather, traffic and environmental factors have a negative impact on road transport.

What are the Advantages of Road Transport?

Highways are still a very important means of transportation in Turkey and the surrounding countries. They enable people and vehicles to commute to a wide variety of places and help them reach their destinations without any hassle. Road transport is the process of transporting goods or people from one destination to another by road. Road transport is still the most used form of freight delivery service in our country. Road transport will dominate the freight distribution service around the world for a long time, although for long distances and for larger-sized freight services, sea, air or rail transport is largely used as the solution.

With the evolution of the transportation industry and the growth of many freight distribution service companies around the world, it will be very uncertain for the person needing transportation facilities to decide which transportation model will best suit their needs. Therefore, it is important to understand the distance, the volume of goods delivered and the speed of service in order to decide which model to prefer. Road transportation is the most used of all transportation services in the sector of the best fair logistics services companies such as Odak Logistics. Even if air/sea/rail transport is used to move goods from one country to another, road transport must be used to eventually get them to their final destination.

Advantages of Road Transport: [2]

Less Capital Expense: Road transport has many advantages over other modes of transport. When you look at the capital required for road transport, the capital requirement is much less than other means of transport such as air, water or rail. Even the construction, maintenance and operation fees of highways are much less than railways and air transportation.

Door to Door Service: The unique advantage of road transport is the door-to-door service for all freight deliveries. Road transport is the only comprehensive system that provides transportation to the final destination. Compare that to a rail or air transport where you have to deliver to the shipping terminal and get on the train or plane after a few security checks. Then after reaching another terminal, you need to take another road transport to reach your destination. Also, these transport terminals are generally not inaccessible areas compared to road transport. With road transport, you can only load goods from your place and unload them at your desired destination.

Service in Remote Areas: Other modes of transport, such as road transport, rail, air or sea transport, may be best applied to transport goods to and from unconnected remote areas. The exchange of goods between cities and small villages takes place largely by road transport.

Flexibility: The flexibility provided by road transport has a great advantage over other modes of transport. Routes and timings can be changed very easily and quickly according to individual needs.

Suitable for Short Distance: Road transport provides a faster and less costly way to transport goods over short distances. Other modes of transport, such as sea, air or rail, can cause delays in transit of goods that require loading and reloading at multiple locations. In road transport, it can be loaded directly into a single vehicle and then transported directly to its final destination.

Less Risk of Damage in Transport: Since multiple loading and reloading situations are eliminated, there will be little chance of damaging the transported goods. Road transport is therefore best suited for transporting sensitive goods that are more likely to be damaged during multiple loading and unloading stages.

Packaging Charges Are Low: The procedure for packing goods in road transport is minimal compared to other means of transport, which must ensure safety for multiple loading and unloading operations.

Speed: If you need to transport goods in a short time, road transport is more preferred than rail or sea transport. Other transports require extra time to book and receive goods.

Less total cost: With road transport, you will not only need less initial investment, but also relatively less capital for operation and maintenance. Multiple loading and unloading, packing etc. when you consider all costs, the total cost of road transport will be less.

Connecting Other Transportation Methods: Even if air, water or rail transport is used for long-distance transport, both initial and final destinations require the use of road transport. For this reason, it also acts as a link to other transportation methods.

As a result;

No matter where you need to transport freight, goods and supplies from one place to another in the world, you should definitely use road transport. Without road transport services in our country, delivery of goods and other essential items in a very short time will not be possible.

Sorting out your needs regarding cost, packaging, volume of goods and comparing costs is essential for planning and choosing the best means of transportation. With Fair Transport services from Odak Logistics, you can be sure that you will receive the best transport services for any of your special needs.
