Hi-Tech Innovations In Shipping Industry

Technological improvements are beyond imagination. It gives new scope to all aspects of life. It is impossible to imagine this business world without any advanced machinery. Similar to other industries, auto transport industry also has its own advancements. Earlier, we did not have any company providing services like moving our household goods and vehicles. So moving our vehicles and household goods across the country or to the other part of the world was quite difficult. But now the technological advancements has made it possible and of course an easy process.

Whatever the case is either domestic or international shipping, car transporters make it possible in nominal fee. Also they give more importance to the safety of the vehicle. They adopt much safety and secured methods for successful auto transportation.

Usually for domestic auto moving two safety methods are adoptable. One is by using open car carriers and the other is by using enclosed car carriers. It is chosen based on their needs. Enclosed car carriers provide more safety and it is preferable for classic vehicles. Usually open car carrier is preferred in case of ordinary cars.

Similarly, there are two methods for overseas shipping. They are air and ocean shipping. Among these two techniques ocean transportation is the oldest and most safety method for transporting overseas. Actually there are several options in ocean transportation. Among those the foremost methods are container shipping, lift on/lift off shipping (LoLo) and roll on/roll off shipping (RoRo). Though all 3 methods were designed for moving goods and vehicles overseas, RoRo and LoLo were exclusively followed for car transportation. And the most preferable method for transporting car is RoRo. The only drawback in ocean transportation is that it consumes more time to reach destination.

In ocean transportation, the other alternate option is the air transportation. This is considered as the advanced and speediest mode of transportation. Ocean transportation takes few weeks whereas air transportation takes only few days. The only drawback in air transportation is the cost. So in case of urgent transportation people prefer air transportation.

Apart from the shipping methods there are also many other developments like Global Positioning Satellite tracking. This GPS tracking is mainly for official alert about the location of the vehicle. Also this facility allows updating customers about the location of the vehicle.

To conclude, advancements in technology has reduced people burden and made transportation of vehicles much easier.
