Transportation of building materials by road is a convenient and profitable delivery mode. Road shipments do not depend on the schedule of railway stations or airports. Drivers can work in shifts practically round-the-clock so speed up delivery. Transportation of building materials by sea or rail is most appropriate for long-distance shipments. Transportation of construction equipment and finishing materials by air is a more expensive way of delivering goods internationally, but also very fast.
We select purpose-adapted vehicles and containers and organize combined delivery schemes using aviation, cars, sea and railway transport.
