Auto Transportation Possible Complications

Auto Transportation Possible Complications

One of the most common situations when it comes to car shipping is the misunderstandings that the auto transport companies and the clients may have during the car shipping process.
We invite you to consider the following:
To better understand auto transportation we ask you to compare the car shipping service with an airline service.
In order for you to book an airline ticket you need to know exactly where are you going, the budget you have, the timeframes you have, the luggage you are bringing with you and the type of service you need as well.
For example, let’s say you are moving from Edmonton, AB to Maple, Ontario ON
You have to consider that not all airlines go from Edmonton to Maple. Most of them will go Edmonton to Toronto as a terminal to terminal service, and maybe from Toronto you may have to take a bus, a taxi or catch a ride to reach your final destination, that is Maple.
During this process you may encounter layovers or delays. This means that your plane might have to stop in Winnipeg and you might have to board a new plane there to go to Toronto. Delays may occur in the meantime, due to mechanical problems, weather, or technical issues in the airline.
Same things happen in the car shipping business. Trucks may have to make stops at different terminals to make drop offs and pick-ups. Trucks can also be delayed due to mechanical problems, weather or technical issues. 
Some airlines allow you to take one suitcase with you and one on the plane, others may charge you per bag, and even overweight. Car shipping process is the same situation. Some services allow content inside the vehicle, some other not, and weight limits are something you should always check with the car shipping company or the auto transport dispatch team.
Types of services in airlines are common now a day. You may choose first class, regular, first boarding, etc. In car shipping industry a similar situation happens. There are different services available like open car carrierenclosed auto shopping and rail auto moving service.

More up for electric trucks... Volvo Trucks are in!

Volvo Trucks are stepping in to the electric truck game. They have announced that starting next year, companies and individuals will be able to get a Volvo electric truck. Volvo Trucks will begin to sell these in Europe next year.
 “Electromobility is fully in line with Volvo Trucks’ long-term commitment to sustainable urban development and zero emissions,” said Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “By using electrically powered and quieter trucks for goods transport in urban areas, we meet several challenges simultaneously. Without disturbing noise and exhaust gases, it will be possible to operate in more sensitive city centers. Transport may also take place throughout less busy periods, for example in late evening and at night. This will reduce the burden on the roads during daytime rush-hour traffic, allowing both the road network and vehicles to be utilized far more effectively than today.

Urban distribution and other pick-up and delivery applications are a sta…
