When you need to establish a contract with a transport company, it’s essential to formalize all the key details related to the logistics of your cargo. Here are the essential steps to follow:

2. Service Specifications: Document all aspects of the service, including start and end dates, precise routes, loading and unloading points, schedules, and any relevant details.

3. Rates and Payments: Set the agreed-upon rates, payment deadlines, and penalty clauses in case of non-compliance. Make sure both parties agree to the payment conditions.

4. Responsibilities and Insurance: Specify the responsibilities of both the transport company and your company regarding loading and unloading. Ensure that the appropriate insurance is in place to protect the cargo in transit.

5. Cancellation Terms: Define the conditions under which either party can cancel the contract, including notifications and possible associated costs.

6. Contract Signing: Once all the terms are agreed upon, both parties should sign the contract. Ensure the contract is drafted clearly, and both parties fully understand it.

7. Monitoring and Communication: Maintain open communication during transportation and ensure that the contract terms are met. Regularly track the progress and resolve any issues that may arise.

8. Closure and Payment: Once the cargo has been delivered according to the contract, proceed to close the contract and make the agreed-upon payment.

You can make this contract with Transvolando as a transport company, as it focuses on groupage transport, and is divided into three packages: basic, standard and premium.

Depending on the type of package you choose, it will have some features or others because for example the basic package is recommended only for return trips which are those that must return to the place of origin.

The standard package also has the peculiarity that they are return trucks, but with the difference that they are in different provinces and are diverted to pick up your cargo.

In the case of the premium package, exclusive trucks are used for its cargo, meaning these trucks are specifically hired to transport your cargo. This type of service is typically necessary when the cargo is special. How do we know if cargo is special? Some indicators include:

-Specific Schedule: When the cargo must be delivered or picked up at a particular time.
-Specific Loading/Unloading Requirements: If the cargo requires specific loading or unloading methods that only a particular vehicle can provide.

-Specific Loading/Unloading Requirements: If the cargo requires specific loading or unloading methods that only a particular vehicle can provide.

You can look for a contract with a transport company, but at Transvolando we offer you on our terms to choose one of the three packages that best suit your needs.
