International transport of goods
Date added: 29.12.2018
Specialist international transport requires multiple rights, permits or licenses, and above all – specialized vehicles that allow, for example, transporting hazardous chemicals. In the case of transporting ordinary goods, which do not require any special procedures such as ADR, for example, the most important factors affecting the manner of order execution are primarily:
- distance and time to cover the distance from point A to point B (or C, D, E etc.);
- number of planned stops;
- the size of the vehicle and its mass;
- fuel consumption;
- cost of parking lots;
- paid journeys (vignettes, motorways, etc.);
- speed limits;
- restrictions on the driver’s working time;
- restrictions on the right of movement of public roads by lorries, eg on public holidays, etc.
Factors affecting logistics
As you can see, there are quite a few factors to consider when planning any major international journey. Therefore, forwarding is a task only for the most experienced and best organized entities that not only have experience in such services, but have professional equipment and modern vehicles as well as trained staff. For only in such conditions you can carry out international transport – loads. Otherwise it is very easy for planning, logistic, organizational, HR, technological or finally financial errors, which will ultimately threaten the liquidity of the company and its further functioning.
