Spedition Tirolia: More than a transport broker

Forwarding & transport service

Forwarding agents organize the transport of any kind of merchandise. But here is not only meant the shipping by road, ship, air or train for example, as the work of a forwarder is a lot more. At the beginning it is to find out which priorities the customer has, who wants to use the transport service and after this of course, the possibilities have to be verified. Further more, one of the main important things have to be elicited, the statement of costs of the transport route. Some more important challenges for the forwarding agents are:

  • the transshipment – loading the goods from one vehicle on to the next
  • storing of goods – if there is a longer time beeing between the delivery and the taking further of cargo
  • additional services as insurance cover and customer protection

Forwarder vs. transport broker

As a professional forwarding agency we are more than only a transport broker. We kindly organize the transport of your goods and in additional we offer some more agreeable services.As a forwarder with transport service it is maybe the most efficient service to handle the transport-organisation-process in your mother language.

In the past the carriage of the merchandise was the main business of a forwarding agent. The modern forwarders, like Tirolia Spedition, have been developed in the last years to real logistic professionals. Not only transports are getting organized, but as well additional services, like advices with regards to additional insurances of the goods. The Tirolia Spedition is as well taking over the responsibility of the safe transport of your merchandise.

Just transport brokers are advertising with cheap rates, but the disadvantages are often getting underrated. A not sufficient advice and lack insurance could cause much higher costs, than a competent transaction with an experienced forwarder, which is taking over in additional and non-obligatory the responsibility of the transport of the goods.

Cargo Shipping - Warentransport via Frachtschiff

Wie der Name schon sagt, handelt es sich beim "Cargo Shipping" um Warentransport und Güterverkehr auf dem Wasser. "Cargo Shipping" gibt es in ganz großem Stil auf den Wasserstraßen der Ozeane und Meere. Mit kleineren Frachtschiffen ist der Güterverkehr aber auch im Landesinneren auf großen Flüssen möglich.

Generell unterscheidet man nach Hochseeschiffahrt und Küstenschiffahrt. Wie man schon erahnen kann, versteht man unter Küstenschiffahrt den Güterverkehr und Personen- bzw. Warentransport in Küstennähe. Diese Art des "Cargo Shipping" zeichnet sich durch Schiffe mit relativ hohem Fassungsvermögen aber geringen Tiefgang aus. Somit können auch kleinere Seehäfen bzw. Binnenhäfen angesteuert werden.

Für die Hochseeschifffahrt werden größere und stabilere Schiffe genutzt, die bekanntesten Vertreter dieser "Cargo Shipping"-Variante sind die Tankschiffe. Eine große Menge an Gütern kann so transportiert und an den Zielhäfen relativ einfach umgelanden werden.

Der große Vorteil des "Cargo Shipping" ist der im Vergleich zu anderen Transportarten geringere Kostenaufwand. Der Schiffsgüterverkehr ist sicher eine sehr langsame Transportart und für leicht verderbliche Ware als Langstreckentransportmittel nicht geeignet, doch ein empfehlenswertes und sicheres Transportmittel für unverderbliche und sperrige Güter und auf dem Landweg schlecht erreichbare Destinationen.
