The Importance of Pre-Planning

Before your load makes it on the road, there should be a detailed plan that is followed from origin to destination. Depending on the freight, putting together a transportation plan can take a few hours to several months. The more complex the load is, the more pre-planning needed. The details of the plan should outline:

  • What permits should be obtained for each municipality your load is traveling through
  • What drive time restrictions need to be considered
  • How many escorts are needed for each municipality
  • If a route survey is necessary
  • If police or utility companies need to be involved
