For many years, long-distance transport options in the USA were firmly limited to railway and water transportation methods. When truck transport became available it opened a world of new possibilities. Now, with the comparatively recent introduction of air freight, it may seem as though all of your Madison, WI area transport needs will be easily met, but some of these large-scale shipping options may not stack up to the simplicity and ease of the classic flatbed transportation services offered by Bay and Bay Transportation. In fact, selecting a large-scale shipping option that doesn’t best suit your freight can be a bigger detriment than it is a convenience.
Large-scale shipping can feel like a tricky logic puzzle when you’re trying to settle on which service to use. Do you select the option that’s cheaper and faster but less reliable, slower and pricier but easy to track, or something else entirely?
If you’re shipping exclusively within the U.S., then a low-cost option like railway may make sense for cost saving, but that limits the load size rather significantly and can take a lot longer in terms of delivery times.
On the other end of the spectrum is air freight which can be fast, but includes a lot of paperwork and adhering to strict travel limitations. Comparing these options, flatbed transportation services may be exactly the third option you’re looking for.
Some of the benefits of flatbed transportation services can’t be matched by other forms of large-scale shipping simply because of the type of machinery in question. Flatbed trucks are able to manage oddly shaped or specialty shipping options thanks to an open-air approach to loading and arranging. Instead of being forced to fit freight into the confines of small or regularly shaped containers, flatbedoptions give businesses flexibility and customizable options for their freight. This comes with an added bonus of low-cost delivery, professional loading and unloading, and impressive delivery times.
