Trucks in the process of transportation of cargoes in RussiaJune 8, 2017
Most often in the territory of Russia for the transportation of groupage cargo wagons are used, represented by special vehicles, endowed with decent characteristics of speed and capacity. It is worth noting that the transportation of groupage cargoes when using trucks is the best option, since it provides an opportunity to reach the cargo at a certain point as quickly as possible and with a minimum of expenses.
Undoubtedly, air transport is the fastest option for delivering cargo in Russia, but in most cases its cost may be higher than the cost of the cargo being transported, on the basis of which the use of aviation for cargo transportation is justified only in emergency situations. Regarding the cheapest option, as rail transport, we can say that he,as well as air transportation, it requires additional costs for the delivery of cargo to a certain place from the final stop, and as a result, it is necessary again to turn to road transport.
In addition, transportation of groupage cargo in Russia involves the use of a minimum package of documents, compared with the package of documentation that is required for air or rail transportation, this is very beneficial for both the organizers and customers of cargo transportation in our country and abroad.
The volume of freight traffic on the territory of Russia reaches 20 tons, which characterizes the capacity of a truck of average capacity. Combined bulky cargo can also be transported on wagons, since very large loads can be dismantled and transported by several cars.
If the cargo is especially bulky, heavy and cannot be disassembled, you can turn to water transport, which is able to cover enormous distances. Meanwhile, in the fundamental number of cases, it is the trucks that most efficiently cope with such an assigned task as the transportation of groupage cargo in Russia.
Undoubtedly, many trucks can go there, where no train, plane or ship can make its way. In this case, everything is suitable for transportation, and the excellent highway, and not the quality roads of the country type, are all within the power of the average waggons, and this appears to be another indisputable advantage of using motor transport for freight traffic.
