Dedicated Contract Carriage

What does Dedicated Contract Carriage mean?

Dedicated Contract Carriage refers to a service where shippers can pay a flat rate per truck and choose the length of time for which they can secure vehicles (one day, one week, a month), depending on their needs. A dedicated contract carriage is especially useful for companies that need to supplement private fleets (ii's more cost-effective as it is better to contract for steady capacity), for continuity of service (the same driver shows up every day, improving communication) and reliability of service.
