The transport of heavy and light cargo carries several negative stereotypes that do not correspond to the reality of the sector. To help combat them, as part of the guild, in this article we are going to point out three of the most common and harmful.

Three stereotypes about the transport of heavy and light loads
Image of the sector

One of the most widespread stereotypes and also one of the most erroneous is the one that labels heavy and light cargo transport with an image of an unmodernized, unprofessionalized sector, especially in some departments such as drivers. Something that we never tire of refuting in Transgesa. We are proud to have great professionals behind the wheel of our vehicles, who add to their effort and technical capacity strict compliance with the various regulations that drivers and trucks have to comply with.
The problem of deliveries to individuals

Parcel deliveries to homes is possibly one of the thorniest issues, facing the public, within the world of transportation. The epicenter of the complaints are those deliveries in which the delivery company marks that the recipient is absent, but in which the recipient himself assures that there was always someone at home that day. When this situation happens, it is very irritating for the person who is waiting for the merchandise, and surely there are individuals who have found this malpractice.

However, it would be wrong to think that transport companies do not invest a lot of effort, time and money in trying to improve deliveries to individuals. Deliveries to individuals have grown unabated since the evolution of electronic commerce and represent a significant percentage of all parcel shipments. Failed deliveries not only inconvenience the recipient, but also lead to extra costs, second deliveries, etc.

To alleviate it, logistics operators are applying various solutions. For example, delivery notices, indicating as precisely as possible the date and sometimes time of delivery, so that the recipient can adapt to it or modify it according to his availability. Also the agreements with convenient delivery points, in which the recipient can pick up the merchandise when it suits him best, near his home or place of work, without having to be aware of the exact moment of delivery.

For this to work, technological developments, improvements in traceability, route management and control, agreements with a very large number of convenience points throughout the country, etc. are necessary. That is, a notable amount of effort that can be overshadowed by those malpractices that sometimes occur.
The transport of heavy and light cargo, an outdated sector

In the same way as in the first point, in addition to that false ugliness and low professionalism, old stereotypes still survive that label heavy and light cargo transport as outdated. In this case, another good place to look is in warehouses, where automation and technology have an ever-growing presence. Warehouse operators in this type of warehouse have technology for ordering, stock control, merchandise positioning, etc.
