When it comes to transporting vehicles or equipment, tolls are something that every logistics agent must take into account. The amount and expense of tolls affect shipping rates. Certain highways and states have higher rates, while some states have no tolls at all. This is part of the reason that preplanning a route helps to minimize costs. Sometimes, though not always, drivers can use alternate routes to reduce toll costs for transport. Preplanning the route also allows the logistics agent to provide an accurate and all-inclusive shipping quote.
When you are transporting anything, whether it’s shipping freight, vehicles, or using drive away services, it is important to keep in mind that the route and states your transport crosses will affect the total price of your transport.
