Tips For Choosing Cargo Services
  • 19th June 2020

To choose the right cargo service, there are several things to take into account. The following are some of the tips you need from Siggol Logistics.


Timeliness of delivery is one of the most crucial things in selecting logistics cargo services. Timeliness is affected by its transporter mode. The best transporter sequences that are based on the timeliness are in as follow:

Transporter via air or aircraft is a cargo service company that specializes to provide delivery service through the aircraft. The timeliness of this type of service can be quite reliable, except at the holiday moments such as New Year and Christmas. In these moments, airlines usually overload, thus they reduce the performance of cargo services. However, we at Siggol logistics always offer solutions to our clients. The shipping rate of this type of transportation mode is the most expensive.

Transporter via express train is a cargo service company that specializes to provide delivery service through express trains. The timeliness of this company is quite good because of the schedule accuracy for the express train. Siggol Logistics has collaborated with Standard Gauge Railway Kenya to ensure its customers get their goods on time.

Transporter via truck is a cargo service that utilizes truck services for the delivery of goods. The performance of this type of cargo is less good because it depends on the man power (driver), truck fleets, and density on the highway.

Transporter via cargo ship is the transportation that uses container. The performance on the speed and timeliness is the lowest. However, this mode of transportation has the least expensive shipping rates, compared to the above four modes of transportation.


Before deciding to use the logistics cargo services, it is suggested for you to ask for clarification regarding the warranty that can be given by the company. You can call the customer service of a logistics company to seek clarification about the timeliness guarantee. This is important because the warranty period is closely related to the transportation mode used, and the cost of postage.
You should also ask warranty for damaged or missing items. Siggol Logistics has well insurance policies that ensure clients do not suffer from loses when goods are destroyed in transit.
