Modern logistics seeks to find the most economical, versatile solutions in the transportation of various cargos. It is no coincidence that trucking with container trucks has gained such a widespread use. This method is based on the use of a container - a universal facility of standard sizes, in which the most diverse types of products are placed. Household appliances, furniture, consumer goods, non-perishable packaged products and beverages, as well as other goods are allowed to be transported in containers.
As already mentioned, containers have typical dimensions, so they can be easily installed on different types of vehicles - trucks, railway platforms and ships. A container truck, which carries out transportation on urban and intercity routes, is a low-bed trailer. A fixed number of standard containers is placed on it, which provides convenience and cost-effective delivery of goods.
This type has a number of advantages in comparison with other transportation methods. We list some of these advantages:
