Container Delivery Services Getting It Right

October 29 03:26 2019

Millions of containers make their way across the world and round the country on a daily basis bringing necessities and luxury goods to global populations. However, getting the containers to their destinations on time takes some strategic planning and the use of smart technology to track and keep tabs on the progress of deliveries. Each container has a tracking device fitted once the goods are loaded into the shipping container, but from there managing the container until it reaches its destination becomes even more sophisticated.

On the ground certain loads need specialized storage and transport solutions – freight in Reefer (refrigerated) containers will need plug-ins or a genset (generator set) to power the container when hauling it over long distances. Usually a container delivery services company will supply the drivers needed, including those for specialized loads like refrigerated or oversized loads. Containers are designed either for dry cargo, to carry liquids such as oils and chemical products or for climate controlled and refrigerated cargo.

While there are some drawbacks to using like the g containers, like time spent stacking and repositioning in container yards, the initial outlay for a container, the possibility of loss at sea, or through theft, the main advantages outweigh these drawbacks. Advantages include faster turnaround times in ports for container carriers, secure loads –sealed at the place of origin, opened only for customs inspection and then finally at point of delivery, and lower costs than break bulk deliveries. Containers have been standardized (ISO standards) so they can fit trucks, barges and ships globally. Each container has its own identification number and code according to its size to make tracking easier.

Container delivery service companies need to be able to take charge of every customer’s needs – whether they require a chassis length of 20 foot or 53 foot. Customers want to entrust their cargo to a company that has the correct container lifting equipment with cranes and specialized chassis available for the overweight and over dimensional goods. When exporting goods, they want to know container delivery services are able to accommodate their high-volume containers when the client’s own warehouse space is running low so they can get goods ready, loaded into the container and have it hauled away for safekeeping until all the legal documentation is complete for shipment to customers.
