So, what exactly is haulage?

Haulage is the process of transporting goods commercially – this can be done by road or by railway. There are two main categories of haulage, these are:

  • Carrier haulage: this is when a shipping company takes responsibility for the transport of a container. 
  • Merchant haulage: this is the process of moving the container. This is done by a consignee, a specified haulage contractor.
