When you’re in the business of lumber shipping, you have to consider the best way to get everything from one location to the next. Lumber comes in all shapes and sizes, so it can be overwhelming to ship. Further, you need to keep costs under control to keep your customers happy.

Lumber shipping and logistics can be made easy. At Royal Transportation Services, we’ll help with all of the details.

The Logistics of Lumber Shipping

There are quite a few things to understand about lumber shipping. You will, typically, want open-air shipment containers due to the overall size of the lumber. It’s easier for cranes and forklifts to load and unload the lumber rather than pulling it out of the inside of a truck.

A few methods are recommended for lumber shipping:

The mode that works best will depend on how far the lumber is being shipped. Often, intermodal shipping is used, such as rail and trucking. With our logistics management services, we can make sure that the lumber is properly matched with the right carriers to get it to where it needs to go.

We can help with all of the details to ensure that you don’t stress about how it’s going to get to your clients. Particularly when you’re looking to grow your business, shipping is a top priority. After all, if you can’t meet client deadlines, you can lose significant amounts of business.

LTL (less than truckload) and FTL (full truckload) shipments are available depending on the amount of lumber going to a particular destination. We have a network of carriers that can help to get your shipments across the state, the country, or the globe. It ensures that you can meet deadlines and keep your clients ordering from you again and again.
