Third Party Logistics – Should you ship Rail, Truck or via some other method? We can help you decide.
Carriers establish their rates in several ways. The rates vary by length of haul, size of shipment and the product’s classification. The product’s classification is a number that reflects how easily the carrier can handle the product – for example, boxed product such as diapers would have a lower classification than products such as flagpoles, which might require individual handling of each piece.
Our 3PL team will work with your traffic manager or logistics coordinator to decide which mode of traffic – water, rail, truck or air – will best meet your supply chain requirements.
- Air is the fastest but is also the most expensive. However, depending on product cost, size and weight, air is sometimes used to reduce overall inventory handling costs as the company may be able to reduce the cost of inventory on hand by instituting frequent air shipments.
- Truck is less expensive and widely used.
- Rail is usually even less expensive but requires a rail siding
- Water is also less expensive but may not be convenient to the sites
Often a combination of ship, rail and container truck offers the best solution – low cost and direct delivery to even remote locations.
