Road transport pricing generally depends on location and demand. That means you should monitor pricing through the year and adjust to make sure road transport still fulfils its purpose properly in your supply chain. You may also need to monitor local events, depending on where you’re shipping, to get the best price.
Considerations with Road Transport
With road transport, you’re trusting a company to deliver your goods safely, potentially across great distances. There is a possibility of instances where the driver meets a traffic incident, bad weather, and more, which delays the delivery. Unfortunately, missing deadlines can dramatically affect your bottom line.
Depending on demand, road transport can become quite expensive. With your needs in mind, you may find yourself looking for a new transport option on short notice. To avoid this problem, you may need to negotiate contracts.
