What Is A ‘Dependable’ Freight Plan?
What is a Freight Plan and Why Do You Need One?
A good freight plan is essential no matter where you are on the freight ladder.
Your freight plan allows us to know what you want, what you need and what your expectations are. It allows us to set up the freight process for your company so that it best suits your project outcomes. It is an effective way of matching requirements with shipping services availability.
This ensures your shipments get to where they need to be when they need to be there.
The plan also helps outline what we need from you based upon the expectations of international shipping. We can formulate you a thoroughly dependable freight plan which allows for easy execution of business with regular and timely communication.
What Does Your Plan Contain?
A freight plan contains all the relevant information needed for your shipping. This includes;
- Shipping schedules.
- A clear outline of origins and destinations.
- Timeslots and locations for deliveries, loading, unloading and other transportation.
- Checklists of required shipping documentation and which party needs to provide it.
- Recommendations for packing requirements and times based upon cargo type.
Having easy access to all this information makes the process of transporting goods less prone to unpleasant surprises. A clear outline of the responsibilities for each party and clear communication also aids in a trouble-free process.
The Benefits of a Good Freight Plan
The benefit of setting up a freight plan with us is that we are there to provide support if things go wrong.
Due to the nature of the freight chain, no freight forwarder can offer 100% accuracy with the plan. There are always elements out of anyone’s control such as weather conditions, geopolitical situations or other unexpected occurrences.
What a reliable freight forwarder such as ourselves can offer is responsiveness to any changing circumstances during freight transportation. Knowing how things should go means it easier to make suitable decisions if the original plan goes astray. The research that has gone into the original freight plan is still relevant to considering alternatives.
