International road freight transportation

It is a fast and cost-effective way to send goods, raw materials, personal effects and other items abroad. It is no coincidence that it is characterized by an optimal ratio of cost and speed, because in terms of time, transport is faster than sea and rail, and in terms of costs it is more profitable than air. Another plus is the low dependence on weather conditions, which play an important role in air and sea cargo transportation. The risk of unforeseen situations during the road transportation is minimal.

Lorry trailers are much larger in capacity than sea containers, so small consignments and oversized structures can be moved by car. It is possible to order a complete set of a batch and delivery by a combined method from us.

Consolidated international road freight transportation

Depending on the volume of the consignment, the transportation of goods can occur in different ways. If shipments of one customer are delivered, then we are talking about complete transportation - FTL. If the products of several customers are loaded at the same time, then the delivery of the combined batch - LTL - is issued.

An important advantage of complete transportation lies in the efficiency. In this situation, the entire lorry with it's trailer is at the disposal of one customer, which means that there are no intermediate unloading points and stops. The route is planned in such a way that the goods, products or property reach the recipient in the shortest possible time.

Consolidated LTL transportation assumes that only part of the van is engaged in a separate shipment. The rest of the space is loaded with the cargo of other clients. This option makes it possible to effectively use the space of the car. The rental price of transport is distributed among all participants in the transportation. Weight has no minimum limit. The maximum weight must not exceed the carrying capacity of the trailer.

Travel time for consolidated cargo transportation increases, however, a competent selection of the route allows you to apply the best solutions for all participants in the transportation. The price is determined by the dimensions of the cargo and the distance of the route.

By entrusting international road transport to ELP Cargo, you can be sure that the quality of your products will not deteriorate due to the characteristics of other customers' products. Things and goods accepted for transportation are sorted by quantity, conditions of detention, type of fasteners. This allows you to avoid worries about the safety of goods.

You can choose the delivery option yourself or after consulting with our specialist. Complete international road FTL transportation is recommended in the following cases:

  1. products of one sender occupy the entire space of the body or most of it;
  2. the batch is small, but the time of transportation plays a major role.

If the speed of delivery is not a priority or the batch is small, then LTL will be more profitable.

Proper packaging protects the contents of the shipment from everyday hazards and ensures that the goods being transported do not damage other goods during transit.

Packaging must be sufficient to protect your item during transit.

Using the most common measures, you can avoid time and labor costs, as well as financial losses.

Use shock-resistant materials that will not allow the load to move freely during transportation.

Each fragile or vulnerable item must be wrapped separately.

Packages must be securely sealed with adhesive tape intended for gluing transported goods.

Boxes must be on the pad and secured.

Cabinet furniture (chest of drawers, wardrobes, beds) must be disassembled in detail and properly packed in a separate package filled with packaging material.

Larger shipments (equipment, etc.) must be secured with a supporting frame structure, which must be filled with protective packaging material (styrofoam, etc.).
Why additionally insure your cargo?
