How many years have you been moving heavy haul freight?
Shippers Questions for A Transportation Company:
Before you start courting a brokerage use the internet to start a background search. Most importantly you would be surprised on just what you can find out in just a couple of hours. Look for motor carrier registrations, insurance, accounts payable health and any law suits liens or complaints filed against them. Social Media is a good tool to flesh out their viability. Be cautious of startups and look for a reputable company. At the very least find one that has over a 10-year track record of doing business moving over dimensional freight.
How healthy and vast are your companies’ resources?
Consider the number and types of equipment that the company has in inventory. The number of employees that maintain all facets of the business is equally important. How long have they been employed? Ask about the last few years gross revenue. Because the more you know about the company the better you will feel about entering a sound longer-term relationship. Ask the lead executives what their forecast projections are. Compare those findings with the national projection. Transportation is expected to almost double in the next seven years.
What is your capacity and inventory of equipment?
This is difficult today with the nationwide shortage of professional carriers. This is leaving some brokers to scramble to find the best carriers in their network. Make sure the broker you choose has thousands of capable resources in their network. Because with the right equipment and competitive prices your cargo will move faster and safer. Freight Shipping Companies should be able to show that they have consistent resources and equipment available in all regions nationwide.
How well do you get along with your heavy haul freight customers?
The carriers that have a fluid relationship with their clients seamlessly handle their freight movements. Almost as if they were part of the company. They should be an extension of the logistical management. These carriers usually answer your requests twenty-four/ seven. Seek a company that has a single point of contact that can therefore delegate and execute your requirements. You don’t want them to pass the buck.
Tell me about your staff.
The management staff may well be the most important factor that you want to feel comfortable with. Besides that, they should be able to field your concerns efficiently and politely no matter how difficult the requirement. Most importantly seasoned brokers and support staff are key. Are they able to call on the specialists that are needed from time to time when moving over dimensional freight?
If you find a heavy haul freight company that will grow with you as a long-term partner, keep them. They should accent your business and exceed your expectations. If they do you found the best solution to move your freight consistently, economically and safely from origin to destination.

Trans-Eurasian belt development project
The Russian government dreams of this Superhighway. In total it would be 12,910 miles (20776 kilometers) in length. That is a serious amount of tarmac that needs to be mixed. On the route between London and New York, it would also connect other big cities including Moscow. Without a doubt, it is the greatest highway ever made and it goes by the name of, “Trans-Eurasian belt development project ”. The cost of the project would be around the $3trillion mark.

The Internet of Things, also known as “IoT”, at face value doesn’t appear to give much context as to what that means exactly. In its simplest form, the Internet of Things is an idea that you can connect any device to the Internet. Your everyday appliances such as your microwave, lamp, coffee machines would be able to access the Internet. You may ask yourself why does something like my microwave need to have the ability to connect to the Internet, it works fine just fine the way they are. The potential for IoT is essentially limitless as most objects nowadays can have sensors and software installed into the devices allowing objects to connect to the Internet. Imagine if our traffic lights had the ability to see traffic coming in advance and be able to streamline transportation more easily via a network that can allow signals to communicate with each other to make our roads more efficient. Imagine IoT in your everyday life, your alarm wakes you up and as you prepare your morning routine, your car will have a message transmitted to it to start 5 minutes before you typically leave for work without you ever having to so much as touch your keys.
