Freight transport management incorporates forming various strategies for increasing the efficiency of freight and commercial transport efficiency. Freight transport management focuses on reducing the shipper costs while considering social costs such as congestion or pollution impacts. It helps the shippers to use the right mode of transportation. For instance, rail and water transport are highly efficient for long distances as compared to the use of trucks for the same. It helps in improving the routing and scheduling in order to increase load factors and reduce freight vehicle mileage. It helps implement fleet management programs that help use optimally sized vehicles for each trip, reduce vehicle mileage, and ensure that fleet vehicles are operated and maintained in ways that reduce external costs.
Freight transport management is used for various modes of transportation such as roadways, railways, marine, and airways. The freight movement done through the path of roads is termed under the segment. It is the most common type of transportation mode as it requires a single customs document process. Railway mode of transportation is highly fuel-efficient and can be termed as a 'green' mode of transportation.
