The longer the transit time, the lower your freight costs will be. Imagine: you want a pallet of goods to be delivered to an address in Northern Italy tomorrow. We will arrange a truck with two drivers for you, so that they are able to drive to Italy non-stop. This is a fast but expensive solution. If your shipment is less urgent, you might want to consider the positive effect the ‘time’ factor has on freight costs:
If your shipment is less urgent, we will use the extra transport time available to make groupage more efficient and load our trucks as full as possible. We will also combine road transport with rail or sea transport. Rail transport is the most sustainable form of motorised transport. This modality generates lower CO2 and fine particle emissions and has a load capacity of 4,000 kilos more than road transport. So, that’s a win-win situation for you, us and the environment.
