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:
- products of one sender occupy the entire space of the body or most of it;
- 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.

Stages of international road transport
The quality of transportation of products by trucks largely depends on the completeness of the information provided by the customer. When submitting a request, please provide:
- type, dimensions, weight of the shipment;
- place of departure and destination, the exact address of unloading and loading, if this is not the terminal of our company;
- type of packaging – pallets, crate, bag, box, etc.;
- loading method (manual, mechanized, whether there is a need for special equipment);
- information for customs clearance;
- transport date.
The information will allow you to more accurately calculate the estimate for transportation by road, since the price directly depends on the data provided. Also, the information will guide the specialist in terms of building the route. When the nuances are discussed, a contract is drawn up.
International transportation of goods involves the following steps:
- according to the transport order, the cargo arrives for shipment;
- customs formalities are settled, documents are prepared;
- by trucks, products are transported along the agreed route to the border and cross it;
