Today’s consumers demand and expect high quality products to be delivered quickly. Efficient shipping and handling is necessary whether goods are being transported short or long distances. When it comes to shipping products, there are times when special logistics situations present themselves. Considering the diverse types of products available today, a one-size-fits-all shipping option is impossible. While many consumer goods and building materials can be shipped with a standard dry van or flatbed, cargo can vary in size, shape, and weight. Some goods have particular handling and regulatory needs that require special equipment and packaging. Specialized transportation services are needed in certain situations. East Coast Transport, a reputable and knowledgeable 3PL, offers specialized transportation options in many industries. What type of goods require specialized transportation?
Goods that Require Specialized Transportation
- High value commodities that need extra security, including electronics.
- Light and heavy machinery which is often oversized or overweight.
- Hazardous materials requiring special containers and carriers.
- Refrigerated (perishable) items that are temperature sensitive.
- Fragile goods that present special packing and handling needs.
A 3PL must adapt to changes in consumer markets, offering flexible and specialized services. Big or small, oversized or fragile, East Coast Transport will tailor shipping and delivery solutions, meeting your specialized transportation needs.
