Choosing the best mode of transportation for your goods is an important consideration when planning your transportation/shipment process. Besides the costs, the urgency of the shipment, the value of the goods being shipped as well as the size and weight of the goods need to be evaluated when determining the form of transportation. In this category, we will help you to determine which mode is best to transport your cargo and freight.

Road transport

This is one of the most common of all modes of transportation in Zambia. It provides several advantages over other modes of transportation such as:

  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Quick and scheduled delivery
  • Local, over border, long or short haul deliveries even in rural areas
  • Flexible service
  • Saving in packing cost compared to other modes
  • Track and trace of cargo and truck
  • Complete door-to-door service and it is one of the more economical means of transport.

Rail

This is the cheapest mode of transport for the transport of cargo, especial bulk load. This is because trains burn less fuel per ton-mile than road vehicles and a train, which can have as many as 100 wagons, only needs one driver. There are, however, some additional costs which are incurred in a rail journey: at each end of the rail transit, a road delivery will be needed, and there will be a lift cost to transfer the container between the train and the road vehicle.

On average, longer journeys tend to be less expensive by rail, and shorter journeys are less costly by road.

Air transport

Air freight is a critical mode of transport. It serves markets and supply chains that demand speed. However, it also has its own disadvantages such as being one of the most expensive due to the requirement of speed and the fuel that is used.

Some benefits of air freight include:

  • Quick transit
  • Less handling of cargo
  • Less documentation
  • Reliable arrival and departures
  • Enhanced level of security for your cargo

Multimodal

This is the use of more than one mode of transport such as rail, road, and sea which allows the customer to cost-effectively manage shipments from start-to-end, ensuring optimum care and efficiency every step of the way.

Benefits

  • Cargo can be moved to any part of the world using multiple modes of transport
  • Reduces the distance for the goods between the manufacturer and consumer
  • Customers can deal with one entity to handle all modes of transport under one document
  • Efficient and cost-effective delivery options
