Difference between Transportation and Logistics Kenya
The transportation industry focuses on the actual movement of products via ground, ocean, and air conveyances (methods of transport) from one place to another.
On the other hand, logistics deals with the integration of storage, handling, sorting, packing, and transportation of goods. This includes Freight management.
What does it Entail?
Sourcing, traffic, import and production personnel input data on terms of sale, classification, documentation, routing, labelling and testing requirements.
All of these affect the efficient movement of the cargo and must be communicated to the vendor.
Motor freight is the form of transport that Safetrac Limited focuses on and is the movement of cargo by truck. These trucks are engineered to haul containers mounted on chassis. With our proper management, a trucker can deliver a full container and return with another.
The sole use of ground transport for the international movement of cargo is:
- attractive when the size of the shipment is a truckload or less.
- if the merchandise is moving between countries located in the same region or hemisphere.
- the distance the cargo is traveling is not prohibitive.
This allows us to have the most time-efficient movement of cargo. This is because the cargo can go from point to point, without reloading to another conveyance.
Motor freight is the most flexible form of transport as delivery to fixed terminals is not necessary. It is the only form of international transport that offers door to door service without repositioning of the cargo.
Our evolving IOT technology has a huge impact on both, the logistics industries as well as on the transportation industries.
As soon as the consignment is out for delivery, our tracking system starts its work, thus increasing transparency in the transaction and between multiple stakeholders.
Our clients can then have minute details (Real time tracking) and can focus on these decisions making the process to be smoother and at a quicker pace.
