Allyn International has released a new introductory level course presenting some introductory level information related to How (cargo) ports work.
In this course, we talk about ports in general and review an example one, before looking at some standard handling equipment, as well as the main cargo types and their related terminals. We will then look at simulated animations of a break-bulk and of a container port before closing up the module. Seat time is 45 to 55 minutes.

Truckload or Less-Than-Truckload
When moving cargo by road, you will often have to decide between using a full Truckload (TL) service or a Less Than Truckload (LTL) one.
Many factors are taken into account when making this decision, but before we review a few of them, let’s first define and highlight the main differences between TL and LTL.
