10 myths about transportation
Goods are damaged in transit
Damage may be prevented during the initial handling stage, when the driver himself directly controls the correct positioning and securing of the goods.
Road transport is the most risky
It is no secret that by rail, air or sea freight we need to deliver cargo to the point of shipment (station, airport, port) and then pick it up from the drop-off point, which can cause physical wear and tear due to excess loading and offloading operations. In such case road transport is the safest method of delivery as it does not require transhipment.
To save money, you need a return trip truck
More and more often it happens that the cheap return vehicles have breakdowns or some defects that they have acquired on previous trips. GTrans experience makes it possible to exclude such vehicles, while at the same time serving a better option without increasing the budget.
Cargo goes missing en route
Customers are worried about a shipment getting lost en route. This is prevented because every shipment is labelled with the consignee's delivery address before being dispatched. Neatness and cleanliness of Gtrans operations ensures that every shipment reaches its destination.
Trucking is the most expensive
Even with a consolidated shipment (opportune cargo), the only right solution is to send the goods by auto road. Railway transportation is cheaper for heavy loads (bulk, metal, building materials, grains, etc.), but not always.
Having an employed logistician is more cost effective than going to a shipping company.
In order to run your own logistics department, you need to pay wages, pay taxes and equip workplaces. And this does not guarantee you minimum shipment rates. You avoid unnecessary, costly activities by going with a logistics company.
Hiring private carriers is more profitable
Working with a client for the first time, a haulier tries to inflate prices and does not deal with paperwork and obtaining approvals. GT Company is legally and commercially liable to the client.
There is a certain market for the stolen goods
GTrans has no idea about the existence of such markets. After 5 years of extensive involvement in the trucking business, we have never encountered a situation where a market for stolen goods has been mentioned. Friendly and cooperative relationships with drivers ensure that the theft of loads for the purpose of selling them is ruled out.
Due to rising fuel prices, freight services may double in price
Statistics show that fuel prices have been doubled in the last 5 years. But freight prices have increased by 25%. This is due to inflation and economic growth. GT is willing to meet customers expectations to keep the fares with additional conditions.
Some customers are worried that their cargo might be stolen by an armed robbery. This fear has its roots in the 'wild 90s', when criminal activity flourished not only on cross-border highways but also in major cities. Nowadays drivers keep in touch not only with each other but also with law enforcement authorities by telephone and radio communication. Drivers also travel in large convoys. GTrans can also provide armed escort services by specially trained officers.
