Road transport is the optimum solution for point to point transport of smaller loads over the shorter haul. For larger payloads and longer distances, other means of transport are more cost-efficient. In Australia, with its vast distances and huge empty deserts, road trains were invented to quadruple road payloads and so remain competitive to rail and coastal shipping. Importantly, no time delays or time-consuming formalities for crossing borders are encountered in Australia.
In the Netherlands the road infrastructure is superb, permitting the highest payloads per axle in all of Europe and serving as an efficient system to distribute imports through Rotterdam to the entire hinterland behind, from Germany as far as Russia, Turkey and even the southernmost former USSR members.
Some of the largest contracts handled by the companies of Sebenza World involve road transport and every year we spend millions on pre- and post carriage, multi modal transport, temperature controlled cargo, oversize and overweight loads, removals in bond and removals in transit; furniture vans, side-loader container trucks and everything in between.
