What types of transport can be used to deliver oversized items
Long and especially heavy loads can be transported within the country railway transport, maritime and river vessels, as well as special trucks. To choose the best option, you need to consider what kind of cargo and where you need to deliver it. The cost of transportation by water or rail is usually much less than by road, but here the need for additional loading and unloading work, and often temporary storage services in warehouses, should be taken into account.
In addition, there is a timetable here, so it will not be possible to quickly send such a cargo. Another important nuance is the relative complexity of the execution of accompanying documents. This process can take several days, which also needs to be taken into account.
