Timing is an important consideration when you are shipping perishable items like agricultural goods. You need to identify agricultural shipping companies which help in timely shipping of agricultural equipment, or produce for the market.

For this, it is good to log into load boards for agriculture goods shipping. They save you money and time by providing a marketplace for agricultural shippers to compete for your business. You can list your agricultural shipments in the online marketplace. Thus, you can connect with specialized agricultural transporters passing through your location.

Independent transporters and truckers which are well equipped to transport food products, animals, heavy farm equipment and food grains to fill up additional cargo space will help you garner cost savings.

 By using a load board, you can save your effort by not having to contact all the businesses on your own. It directly connects you to agricultural shipping companies which place all-inclusive, competing quotes or bids for your listing in one central location. You can get a better look at the working of this process and gain familiarity with cost-to-ship agriculture by going through past transactions of agricultural transport.

After listing your agricultural transport shipment, you will get several bids from the load board’s community of hundreds of well reputed carriers. Point to note is that most load boards are free or charge minimal rates and there is usually no extra fuel, mileage or hourly charges.

Some of the agricultural shipping services offer:

  • National or international transport of food grains by road
  • River/ sea freight through vessels for bulk transport of all kinds of agricultural products.
  • Trade execution of oil seeds, grains, and other related products on CIF and FOB basis.
  • Transport by rail of crops and grains in special cars for grains.
  • Grant of customs services via the complete logistics chain (import, export, and transit clearance of needed documents for shipping).
  • Operational control of transport at every step and means of daily monitoring.
  •  Comprehensive support in preparing necessary certificates as well as documents for customs and shipping.

Professional companies for transporting agricultural commodities have wide experience. Their drivers transport agricultural products with attention and care. One can identify the best companies by the large number of customers they serve. Some companies use aluminum frames in their dumper trucks which makes the semi-trailer lighter and enables transport of goods at less cost of transport. Some offer lasting availability of fleet and quick completion of order.
