Hemp Transportation

Hemp Transportation – Basics


Hemp Transportation is a combination of knowledge, skill, and availability. Any logistics professional can claim to be an expert in hemp transportation, but are they really giving your shipment the best service? Well, to find out, it is important to ask them a few questions to thoroughly vet their hemp experience.

First, ask them about permits. Yes, there are permits for certain states. Anyone who says there are no permits does not have the experience to haul your hemp safely. To be frank, they probably boot-legged your hemp shipment through these states. This is concerning for anyone risking their hemp shipment with an unqualified logistics person.

Second, question the price. Yes, it is expensive to ship hemp the right way. This is due to a number of factors like dedicated vehicles, high freight costs (currently), high-risk commodity, and a number of smaller reasons. If someone is offering you an LTL option, then reject it. LTL Carriers are known for delays, damages, returns and in rare cases, seizures. Take my word for it, as I have worked in an LTL carriers terminal as a dock worker. They do not care about your shipment. It is a cram everything you can in a truck to get it to the next terminal. If it breaks, then oh well. Just another drop in the bucket.

Third, do they have the skill? What I mean by this is when the police have your shipment pulled over on the side of the highway, do they have the skill to pursued that police officer that it is in fact a lawful shipment? 1 out of 10 shipments of ours is stopped by law enforcement. My team and I are fielding calls all day and night to protect our customers and our reputation. We understand that having the proper documentation is enough, but law enforcement can stop your hemp shipment and test it if they want. To avoid this, we answer the phones are make the calls out to protect and legitimize our customers shipments. Getting them back on the road is our main priority.

Finally, knowledge. Do they have it? Question them rigorously. Use what you learned here to get the right answers. Ask them about how law enforcement tests, what they test for, etc. See if they know what they are doing, or if they are just “sending it”. It is  your shipment on the line and I can assure you no insurance company will cover negligence. You may find yourself in a court room trying to recover/salvage what you can from a disaster of a mistake.
