Road transport is the most mobile way the send your goods to everywhere with a road connection.

With the road transportation there are two possibilities to send the goods: full loads (FTL or Full Truck Load) and partial loads (PTL).

The goods are usually packed on the pallets for the road transportation.

  • « EUR pallet – 120 * 80 cm
  • « FIN pallet – 120 * 100 cm

How much is it possible to load on to a trailer?

Most common maximum loading unit in road transport are the following parameters:

  • 24 000 kg
  • 34 EUR pallets (120 * 80 cm)
  • 26 FIN pallets (120 * 100 cm)
  • 85 m³ … 112 m³ (depending on the type of the trailer either a full trailer or a semi trailer)
  • 13,6 ldm (loading meter – an actual meter of the total trailer length)

The following documents accompany the goods in road transportation:

  • An invoice or a bill of lading issued by the consignor
  • CMR – international waybill

CMR is an international waybill filled in by a carrier company, one copy of which is given to the sender of the goods, one copy to the receiver and the third copy will remain at the carrier as a proof of the transport made, and will arrive to you together with an invoice for the transport service.

Sea transport is the cheapest possible way of transport if we talk about very long distances.

  • partial consignment in a container (less than container load)
  • full container consignment (full container load)

How much goods can be loaded into a container?

The quantity that can be possibly loaded into a container does depend on the size of it.
