You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette. However, if you want to make a successful career out of 3PL services, you can’t afford to break anything being shipped by companies hoping to get their goods in consumer hands all in one piece. That’s true with eggs, and it’s also true with electronics, from household appliances to hi-tech equipment and telecommunication products. Thankfully, the safe transport of electronic goods is something handled with great skill by trucking companies in Ontario.
Safety Measures to Follow for the Transport of Electronics
Although we tend to think modern electronics are practically infallible, the truth is electronics are still delicate goods. You can drop a crate of pancake mix off a forklift without being too worried the goods will be damaged; the same cannot be said about dropping a crate of 55-inch plasma smart TVs. To ensure their safety, electronic goods have to be properly packaged from the moment they leave the factory. Special care and handling has to be taken with such high-end electronics when they’re being transported to retailers; conscientious 3PL service providers working in collaboration with their preferred trucking and logistics company should always take extra precaution with such shipments, crating them properly and securing them to a skid to minimize the risk during transport. In most cases, the supplier of such delicate electronics would take the time to secure goods in this fashion, knowing they are ultimately responsible for the quality of the goods.
However, smart 3PL companies always conduct a visual inspection of such shipments to ensure the safety of the goods. That way the shipment is insured in the event of any unexpected damage that occurs. Electronics are becoming increasingly more complex. Take a look at your typical Maytag washer made in 1970 and compare it to the high-tech computer enhanced models of today. It’s like comparing a VW Beetle to a Space X rocket. For this reason, logistics companies have to step up their role in the safe transport of such delicate goods. Freight shipping NATS Canada is one way to ensure you are working with a logistics company that understands the importance of delivering undamaged shipments.
