        Economy as a factor of transportation scheme choice.

 

        A determinant in choosing suitable transportation company is usually a factor of its services' costs.

        For choosing cost-effective scheme of partnership the expenses on all the links of the transportation chain and all due paper work should be processed.

        There are two easy ways to save money on transportation process:

 

        1. Ordering a minimum set of services in transportation company.

        As an example you can choose the scheem with only a single transportation service included. In this case you will be responsible for uploading/unloading of loads and all the paper work. Such a scheme will be more economic than if the transportation company takes all the responsibilities for the goods up- and unloading, paper work and the other formalities connected with goods acquisition.

        2. Using an economic transport.

        For the purposes of shortening the delivery expenses the most cost-effective transportation means can be used. Two well-known ways to save money on transport are the ordering of an assorted lading that is transported by sea or by railway. Such kinds of delivery take more time than air carriage. Loads can be delivered only to railway stations and sea ports. However, if the availability of price paid for such variants of transporting loads justifies the additional efforts of a consignee, such scheme will be most suitable.
