Cost of Hemp Logistics
Everyone has the same question about hemp logistics; how much will it cost? So, lets make it simple by giving you an example shipment. For this example, we will be shipping 1 pallet (Three 55 gallon drums shrink-wrapped to a standard size (40*48) pallet.) from Medford OR to Denver CO. The weight will be 1000 kg’s plus the weight of the pallet.
The total distance is 1,311 miles and the ideal vehicle to ship this in is a dedicated Sprinter Van. Sprinter Vans can hold up to 3500-4000 lbs of weight and have the capacity of 3 pallets on average. They are more ideal than a box truck or a 53’ Dry van because they are not confined to the DOT’s elog drive times. So they can cover 1000-1200 miles in a day. Not perfect for this shipment that is going 1,311 miles. Our driver would need 1.5 days to get to Denver safely. Sprinters are also dedicated, meaning they will only haul your hemp products. No chance of trans-loading damage or other cargo puncturing a hole in one of your buckets/barrels. Once you load it into the van, it will not be touched until it arrives.
The line-haul for a 53’ Dry Van as of August 12th, 2020 is at $3800 and $2900 for a box truck. Sprinters will cost you $1800 or possibly less if we have more availability. Drivers are educated on the commodity and will be given the proper paperwork to complete this shipment safely. Fide Freight will be watching over the shipment (day and night) to ensure a smooth delivery. When compared to LTL, sprinters may be more in cost, but the service they come with, damage and transit risk-mitigation, and expedited transit time may be beneficial in a time of uncertainty. Our hemp logistics team will allow you to know the final cost, know it will deliver, know that it will show up with no damage.
