Services provided by road haulage companies

The term road haulage covers the activity of transporting a wide range of goods and equipment in specialised vehicles by road. Goods will be loaded on at given collection points and delivered to end-user destinations. 

 

If required, these goods can be held in a warehouse until they are required to be delivered. Road haulage and specialist transport companies will have a planned schedule for each consignment they are given.

 

The transport and logistics sector is the UK’s fifth largest employer and the industry is continually growing. 89% of all goods transported by land in Great Britain are moved directly by road which demonstrates the importance of road haulage companies.

 

Organisations which rely on the delivery of large technical equipment need it to arrive on time and undamaged. This is where professional specialist road transport companies come in and can provide:

 

  • Safe storage facilities: Hi-tech warehouses will keep sophisticated and fragile equipment secure until it is ready to be transported to its destination. The staff working at these facilities will be trained in technical equipment handling and will use specialist machinery to load and unload vehicles. 
     
  • Fully-resourced vehicles: The vehicles used to transport goods will be chosen specifically for each individual journey undertaken. For example, lorries have differing load capacities to handle single and multiple tech transport deliveries to both urban and out-of-town end user sites. 
     
  • Shipment tracking: Comprehensive management processes allow companies to know exactly where a delivery is at any given time in its journey. This helps to identify if any delays are going to occur and if routes need changing due to road closures.
