Why order FTL transport via Quicargo?
Choose for FTL transport when you want to benefit from fast pallet deliveries. Full truckloads are shipped fast, as there are less stops on the route compared to when you order LTL freight or groupage deliveries.
Additionally, there is less risk of damage with full truckloads. The goods usually stay in the same truck. Less loading and unloading typically decreases the chance of damaging your merchandise.
Lastly, shipping many pallets in one go is in most cases cheaper than splitting up the loads in several LTL shipments. For high volume, benefit from incredible rates for our FTL services.
Preparing road freight to be picked up by our FTL carriers
Having your pallets prepared in a secure way can save time and money. It is needless to say that you don’t want to damage your goods. You can prevent this by preparing your cargo in the correct manner.
Make sure that everything is placed on the pallet. This has to be done by using firm stacking methods. Make sure that this is done before the carrier arrives. There are a lot of different professional materials to secure the goods. Straps and professional foils are frequently used.
