What You Need to Know
Are you looking for a reliable land freight service in Singapore? Here are five factors you should know about land freight services beforehand.
1. When should you opt for land freight?
The delivery site must be reachable by land, and both locations must have land borders separating them in order for international land freight shipment to be a viable option. It's a good idea to compare prices for Full Truck Loads FTL with Full Container Load (FCL) choices for shipping since it can be less expensive to transport goods by sea.
2. What are the types of land freight?
There are various methods of transporting land freight shipments. LTL shipments, or less than truckloads, are transported using consolidation. This works best for local and international land freight shipments that contain only a single or a small number of pallets.
We also provide FTL (Full Truck Load), which is utilized for heavier shipments and typically has a faster transit time than LTL shipments because the driver travels straight from the place of pickup to the site of delivery.
Last but not least, there is the heavy-lift or project cargo, which is typically a large or heavy object that is transported on specialized trailers designed to support such exceptional loads.
3. How does consolidation work?
The idea of consolidation was developed to reduce the cost and sometimes maintain the same transit time of land, sea, and air freight shipping. Shipments are picked up from the shipper's loading location and brought to the service provider's (co-loader) warehouse for processing when using the land freight mode of transportation.
They will be organized and placed with other shipments or products traveling in the same direction before being transported once more to the recipient's location or the next transit point. By distributing expenses in this way, service providers are better able to offer customers lower pricing. The specialized van or FTL transportation may take the same amount of time or a little bit longer.
4. What is the land freight bill of landing?
The bill of landing is a contract for transportation from shipper to consignee that includes information about the shipment, including its weight, dimensions, description of the product being sent, value, packing, and more.
It also includes information about the pick-up and delivery locations, incoterms, and other information relevant to the cargo being shipped. The terms and conditions that explain and establish each party's liability on this bill of lading, including the carrier who may be liable in some circumstances, are included on the reverse of the document.
5. How are land freight rates calculated?
In land freight forwarding, different regions have different methods for calculating transportation costs. According to the equation Length (cm) x Width (cm) x Height (cm) / 3000, each CBM is equivalent to 333 kg in several nations.
Alternately, the ratio will be 1:3. In this instance, the cost is based on the rate per KG, and the chargeable weight is determined. In other nations, transport companies will bill clients based on slots (how many pallets, crates, skids .. etc.). Overall, the rates will be higher if the things are not stackable because they would take up more space.
