What is Road Freight?

Road freight is the physical process of transporting goods and cargo by road using vehicles. This could be by transporting cargo in a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV), like a lorry, all the way down to a small van.

Road freight can be incredibly cost-effective, and in some instances, it’s the only mode of suitable transport. For example, in rural areas, road freight is often the only mode of transport suitable for transporting goods. And this is why we offer road freight solutions using a variety of different vehicle options.

Goods can be transported via road freight nationally or internationally too, and road freight is often used to complete the journey of goods that have also travelled by air or sea.
