As trucking services are not bound by flight and sea schedules, they are often able to transport goods at a time stipulated by the client on a short notice. For the same reason, any delays caused by bad weather can easily be rescheduled to the nearest available timing to minimize the disruption for clients. In addition, trucks are also more maneuverable then other modes via rail, sea or air because they can travel anywhere as long as the road permits.
ASIA LOGISTICS CARGO WAREHOUSETRUCKING
Trucking is a term used in the transportation industry for carrying goods from one point to another via a truck. As the variety of products that can be transported (Eg. Perishable goods, dangerous goods and flammable goods) are wide in nature, there will be a variety of vehicles needed to suit the needs of the customers. Trucking is usually not the sole mode of transport used for the transportation of goods as it is often used in tandem with other modes such as air freight or sea freight.
There are 2 major categories of trucking services. For-hire trucking services are usually offered by businesses which offer truck transportation services for a cost. Private trucking services, on the other hand, are offered by an individual owns or leases a truck or a fleet of trucks to meet your transportation needs.

WHAT ARE THE PROCESSES OF TRUCKING?
Imagine you are a business owner in Singapore who has ordered 500 pairs of sport shoes from a factory in China. You have contracted a freight forwarder to help you transport the shoes to your store in Singapore. Now we will delve into what happens behind-the-scene.
The freight forwarder has contracted a trucking company to send a truck to the factory in Johor to pack and pick up the shoes. The truck driver would have been provided with clearance documentation.
Before crossing the border to Singapore, custom officials will check the necessary clearance documents, which have been provided to the truck driver beforehand, to ensure that the goods being transported do not deviate in any way from that written in the documents.
After the custom clearance and entering Singapore, the truck will then be driven to your retail store where the goods will be unloaded and stored into your shop, ready for the next wave of customers.
PROS AND CONS OF TRUCKING
SHOULD I USE TRUCKING?
There are some undeniable benefits to using trucking services as compared to other modes of transportation. However, there are still certain drawbacks that limit the usage of trucking as an omnipotent transportation means. As such, customers that often enlist trucking services usually require goods which are small in quantity, produced or sourced from a nearby location and/or require constant and frequent shipments.
Examples include but are not limited to:
- Fresh produce of any kind
- Small family owned shops
