Barging along narrow waterways is the most efficient method of transporting goods. A single barge has equivalent capacity to 15 rail cars or 60 truck trailers. A single tugboat can handle multiple barges, providing excellent opportunities to take advantage of economies of scale. While obvious geographical limitations apply, Hudson works with clients to determine if lightering into barges can be a cost effect method of transporting their goods.
Intermodal shipping has arisen in recent years as a modern, budget-friendly, alternative to truckload shipping. This mode of transportation has existed for centuries, and today, technological advancements in the world of intermodal logistics have made intermodal shipping nearly as fast as truckload shipping. Hudson is able to offer worldwide intermodal service as part of our logistics services.
In a supply chain system, it is common that carriage begins and ends with road transportation. Responsive and adaptable, trucks move over 60% of the world’s freight. Hudson engages with trucking carriers across the globe to ensure our customers’ goods are moved quickly and efficiently when moving oversized or smaller cargoes.
In Australia Hudson is able to utilize so-called “road trains” of 3 or more trailers attached to a single truck to efficiently move large quantities of goods across long distances. By working with local carriers we are able to ensure that transportation of raw materials to the port can be done in the most cost-efficient manner possible.
An expansion is an essential part of any solid growth strategy. While it’s important to expand into new sales channels and scale your operations, you also need to expand your product lines to truly achieve sustainable growth. For Hudson many factors have influenced our decision to expand our Value-added services from our existing product line, into Grinding, Sorting, Mining and Bagging.
