The freight shipping has gained a broad development with the emergence of commodity needs and with the development of vehicles.

The freight shipping is a process of movement of the freights, differing in the weight, overall dimensions, appointment and properties of a starting point to the destination by a particular type of a specific transport mode or its combinations.

The modern express delivery service differs in the high speed, safety, and identity of services. At the same time, the report and a mark on freight shipping are provided for a delivery confirmation.

Depending on a type of the used vehicle, it is differentiated the following types of the freight shipping:

  • By truck;
  • By railway;
  • By air;
  • By sea.

The choice of this or that type of the used transport depends on such criteria as:

  • Speed;
  • Cost;
  • Geographical features;
  • Overall dimensions of freight and its weight;
  • Safety;
  • Other properties of freights: potential of explosion, toxicity, fragility, reaction to change of temperatures, hygroscopic, etc.
