Recently, cargo transportation market has been impacted by adverse effects of external forces. Nevertheless, road cargo transportation keeps its leading positions in its segment. High volumes of freight transportation by road are caused by several factors. Trucks can drive regardless of operating schedule of airports, railway stations, ports and thus can operate 24 hours a day, which makes delivery more efficient. Truck usage allows to find flexible route and trace cargo based on data from modern GPS navigation systems and GLONASS. In case of goods delivery to short distance, transportation by trucks allows to minimize financial costs.
