You all know the term “follow the money” and probably relate it to enterprises of a somewhat dubious nature. But, that doesn’t always apply. In this case, it positively applies to the supply chain and transportation of freight.
Matters of Handling
- Intermodal freight transportation relates to the transportation of freight in intermodal containers and vehicles, by use of multiple categories of transit (by truck, ship and rail), without any handling of the freight itself when exchanging modes.
- This technique assists in reducing the handling of cargo, improves security issues, lowers the risk of damage and loss, and favours quicker transportation of freight.
- Administering a sturdy supply chain will lead to a fruitful bottom line for any shipping company.
- The supply chain’s sway on a company’s value can be measured via speed to the market, because the faster one gets their products to a market, the more full-price sales there are to be found.
Modes of Delivery
- Getting a shipping container delivered to any address is no problem with the right company.
- The usage of standardised sizes hugely improves how the container can be simply and skilfully transported from a depot to a truck and off to the address.
- The delivery methods for professional container transport in Melbourne can differ depending on the container’s size, and to where it is being delivered to.
Here are some of the Methods Used to Transport Containers:
Tilt Tray Slide
- A tilt tray slide truck shipping container transporters have the ability to load and unload containers up to 10 tonnes, in the most skilled way possible. In container transport, tilt trays are the most favoured way of transportation.
- Professional companies are equipped with the CLOS (Container Loading and Offloading System), which guarantees the task being undertaken to the maximum in terms of safety.
- A tilt tray easily loads & unloads from the rear.
- Side loaders can be used to transport 20 foot and 40 foot shipping containers of up to 30 tonnes. If there is some defined space in the area where the container has to be delivered, this is one perfect method of delivery.
- The container is taken off by crane arms to the driver’s side of the vehicle.
- A number of side loaders can also be doubled as stack containers.
- The versatile Hiab transporter is a crane-mounted truck.
- This can be used to deliver a container in places where there is a limited amount of space for either a side loader or a tilt tray.
- The easy use of a crane means that a container can simply be put into position at an angle or even up into an elevated space.
- The Hiab can also be used to put containers on to second and third floor sites and other types of obstacles.
