Trailer transport of goods – An attractive freight alternative

Trailer transport has become an increasingly attractive freight alternative. The main reason is shorter lead times and cost-effective transport of cargo. The most common goods to transport during trailer transport are pallet goods, piece goods, bulk goods and full loads. When you transport your goods without hauliers, you get to choose whether you want to transport FTL (Full Truckload Truck) or LTL (Less Truck Load), a choice that has a major impact on both lead times and shipping costs.

If your goods are not of large enough volumes to fill the entire cargo space, LTL shipping can be a more cost-effective option where you share the cargo space with other importers. 

Road freight transport of dangerous goods

Regarding road freight transport of dangerous goods, there are certain laws and regulations for how it should be handled. Regulations for road freight transport of dangerous goods are included in ADR (international). EDS helps to transport all types of goods.
