Shippers Seeking Transport Providers
- Do you need to ship at the best rates?
- Do you need competitive quotations to transport your goods?
If the answer to any of these is yes then please read on.
What Benefits Do I get By Using Transport4U?
Transport4U actively seeks out transport providers who deliver on regular routes that have unused capacity on their vehicles.
By matching you the shipper seeking to transport your goods to the same destination as a transport provider already going to the same location, the transport provider is in a strong position to give you a very competitive quotation.
Example Case A
An example would be company A wants to deliver an industrial printer from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bharu. You can advertise for free on Transport4U website safe in the knowledge that only only our premium and verified members will have access to your contact details. Many of our members will deliver regularly on this route and we will send them notification of your job.
What Else Do We Do?
We will first check if there are any vehicles available without a backload (returning to Johor empty or with half load).
If yes, then this is where you can really make savings because the haulage company has already been paid for this trip and they can be negotiated with to achieve a good price that is beneficial to both parties.
Example Case A End Result
Company A receives competitive transport quotation saving them money. This is a win win situation for both shipper and transport company.
Example Case B
A logistics company from Shah Alam will collect a full load from Port Klang, it will be delivered to a warehouse in Ipoh but, the truck does not have a return load to take back to Selangor.
What Can We Do?
Again we will cross check our members to see if there is a matching truck load/half load to be collected from Ipoh going to anywhere in Selangor.
Also we will talk to our members who regularly use this route to see what options there are, sometimes they run non profitable transportation journeys for regular customers and are prepared to sub contract the work out at a reasonable rate.
Combined loads are another option many haulage companies use. This involves combining many loads going to a similar destination however; this invariably leaves a surplus that cannot be carried and if this matches your backload route we will notify you.
Example Case B End Result
The logistics company from Shah Alam has greatly increased their chances of obtaining a backload by advertising their empty back load route with us and asking us to cross reference our database for companies delivering on this route who need to sub contract some of their work load.
Example Case C
A housewife wants to collect kitchen furniture she has just bought from a lady in Puchong and transport it to her home in Subang Jaya.
