Managing a multitude of shipments with project freight.
October 6, 2017
Shipping a single shipment can be stressful, but a multitude of shipments is often times chaotic for even the most organized person. Keeping track of where shipments are, how soon they’ll reach their destination, and communicating with the customers requires that the shipper does their due diligence and gets the help they need to run things smoothly. This is where project freight services can be useful.
When should shipments be treated as a project?
There are three main characteristics to consider if you aren’t sure when you should treat your shipments as project freight. Before anything else, you should consider the volume of your shipments. If you’re getting ready for a product launch and have lots of inventory to move, then you might consider project freight services. We outline the other two characteristics in our project freight white paper.
