General Transport

The transport of dry goods or general cargo does not require any particular handling or treatment. Unlike bulk or tank transport, this type of goods is usually palletised to facilitate loading and unloading of the vehicle. Break bulk cargo is cargo that is transported unconsolidated, such as packages, boxes or sacks with their own packaging. Unit loads are goods that travel in groups of pallets.

Transport of Special Cargo

Heavy or oversized cargo requires the availability of suitable transport to transport it, whether it is machinery, industrial or construction elements. Normally, in this circumstance it is essential to use special machinery for handling, loading and unloading, such as large tonnage machinery or cranes. At Maritima Sureste we have qualified personnel, the relevant authorisations and the best vehicles for this service.

Transport of Dangerous Goods

The following list mentions some products considered as dangerous goods:

  • Flammable solid materials.
  • Explosive elements.
  • Flammable liquids.
  • Radioactive materials.
  • Self-reactive materials.
  • Toxic materials.

Advantages of Road Freight Transport

Road haulage has a number of advantages for the customer over other types of transport, among which we can highlight:
Road transport is the cheapest option for the transfer of goods over short and medium distances compared to air or sea transport. This is because it does not require specific infrastructures to reach its destination (such as a port or airport). Of course, this is reflected in the final price.
This type of transport stands out for its capacity to move both heavy and light loads, and is also preferred for moving foodstuffs (perishable products) that need to be delivered quickly to any city, province or town.
Although road transport covers the shipment of practically all types of products or goods, whether light or heavy vehicles, foodstuffs, hydrocarbons or hazardous materials, a series of safety regulations are always followed to the letter to support the protection of the cargo according to its type, including the responsibility of the driver in charge of its transport.

A feature shared by most logistics companies is the GPS geolocation of their vehicles.
At Maritima Sureste we apply this feature to our shipments to ensure the safety of road transport. In this way we are able to observe the inconveniences related to traffic factors and thus be able to forecast delays.

From the moment the goods leave one of our warehouses or from the point of origin, to the door of the consignee, without having to use more than one different vehicle.

Disadvantages of Road Transport

Although road transport has many advantages, it also has a few disadvantages that, although they are not important enough not to hire this service, it is important to know them:
Road transport is the cheapest option for the transfer of goods over short and medium distances compared to air or sea transport. This is because it does not require specific infrastructures to reach its destination (such as a port or airport). Of course, this is reflected in the final price.
The problem with lorries is that they are vehicles that emit many substances that pollute the environment, such as CO2 and generate noise pollution. The good news is that the manufacturers of this type of transport are working to use modern electric or hybrid powered engines and thus pollute less.
Ya sea por aglomeraciones en el tráfico producido en las vías principales o Whether due to traffic congestion on main roads or a restriction when entering a city, delays in deliveries can occur. However, at Maritima Sureste we have the technical means to predict these incidents and thus avoid these annoying delays.
