What Is Commercial Trucking?
Commercial trucking is a business category comprised of companies that transport goods between locations. There are many commercial trucking companies in the United States. Large freight carriers own tractor trailers and employ drivers, warehouse and logistics personnel. Their services are available to all, but substantial discounts are reserved for high-volume shippers such as large companies and freight brokers.
How Do Minimum Shipping Volume Contracts Work?
Most large commercial trucking companies require a minimum shipping volume per month. These volumes are necessary to maintain an account. The cost of shipping with these companies will often be based upon the monthly volume you ship. If you are a one-time shipper or don’t maintain a shipping volume requirement, a 3PL (3rd Party Logistics company) might be your solution.
