The urgency and speed with which you need to get your product to its destination is a key factor in deciding what mode of transport to use. Some forms of transport are more likely to be affected by factors such as bad weather so make sure you are aware of this when making your decision.

Type of goods

Certain products are subject to very specific transportation requirements because of their nature. Deciding which mode of transport to use will always be dependent on how dangerous, fragile or of high value the products are.
