Why Road Forwarding Is An Important Factor In Supply Chain Management

While air and maritime forwarding are cheaper alternatives for long-distance hauling, road forwarding is ideal for shorter distances. Additionally, certain locations cannot be accessed via rail and airways, which makes it necessary to ship the products using roadways. Also, road forwarding is an integral part of fulfilling doorstep deliveries. The readily developed infrastructure also contributes to making road forwarding one of the most sought-after methods by supply chains across the globe.
