One of the most important tasks that a company or entrepreneur has to solve when trying to establish cooperation with manufacturers from China is to choose the optimal supply chain for purchased goods. After all, not only future profit, but also the success of the whole event depends precisely on how well-planned logistics related processes are. Often, the most promising and profitable method of transportation to Russia is auto delivery of goods from China.
Features and profits of road delivery
The main, but not the only argument in favor of this delivery method is the low cost of transport services. According to this criterion, delivery by road is an indisputable favorite, which practically beats all alternative methods. The common border between the Russian Federation and China makes the road delivery even more advantageous, as well as:
- The ability to transport almost any type of cargo
- Extensive road network
- Efficiency (only much more expensive air transportation is faster)
- Simple and fast loading/unloading mechanism
- The ability to choose the best route and change it if necessary
In addition, the ability to choose a suitable vehicle for the specifics of the transported goods is no less significant. So, for bulky products or complex unassembled structures, special tractors with a platform can be involved. Liquids (including explosive or combustible ones) are best delivered by tanks, and perishable products – by refrigerated trucks.
At the same time, the economic efficiency of delivery can be further increased through the formation of so-called consolidated parties, which include several different types of products at once.
Road transport from China to Russia will be the best choice if:
- It is necessary to ensure the shipment of goods to places located away from railway stations, airports or seaports
- It is necessary to solve the problem of the fast cargo delivery within a limited budget
- It is necessary to carry out the transportation of specific goods (e.g. food)
