Useful information:

The term general cargo means the transportation of a large consignment of goods using a single type of transport (container transport by rail or road transport is more often used). Often a general cargo is called a valuable cargo, which has an increased importance in industrial production or construction.
 This variety of goods include a variety of piece goods. They can be transported both in packing and in bulk. In addition, the goods that require the consolidation of the package are also general. In case of transportation of a consignment lot, a complete list is drawn up. Before shipment the general cargo must be processed and prepared for transportation without fail.

 General cargo typing
 Such types of cargo can be divided into several types: in size - conventional, lengthy or oversized and by weight (heavy and light). Cargo, carried in a variety of containers, are called container-piece. As well as general cargoes are carried in containers, metal structures, timber, reinforced concrete materials and goods packaged in packages (building materials, fertilizers, various crops, etc.).

 Transportation of general cargo
 For the transport of general goods, you can use any type of transport: rail, road, sea or air. The choice of this or that type of transport depends on the preferences of the owner of the cargo, its financial status and the nuances of cargo transportation. Each of the above types of freight transport has its advantages and disadvantages, for example, air travel is the most expensive, but at the same time the fastest, while the sea ones - though not slow, but one of the most capacious.
 The most popular type of freight transport, for the transport of general cargo, is road transport. Cars can deliver goods to any destination, overcome the most difficult areas for other modes of transport. The possibility of delivering goods by road depends only on the availability of the road. Also, this type of transportation can provide the customer with several routes at once. In addition, the truck driver or the person responsible for the cargo can fully control the entire transportation process, monitor the cargo condition and provide the customer with all the necessary information about the current state of the shipment. Trucks can carry a variety of cargo, including cargo with non-standard dimensions.
 Transportation of any cargo must always be accompanied by all necessary documents, and the cargo must be insured. Often the compilation and preparation of all accompanying documentation for the cargo is handled by the carrier company.
