Overview on Freight Trucking 

In the early days the invention of the train provided the early settlers easy access to the rest of the country. Trains were used to transport people and goods across country but they were slow and dangerous. They also had a limit to which areas they could travel. Since then freight trucking has become the king of the highway. The trucking industry has taken over the distribution of all types of freight transportation and has been a major factor in the South African economy; you can take that orange which is grown in Durban and send it to Botswana while it is still fresh. The trucking transportation services industry has allowed freight distribution to anywhere in the Southern Hemisphere at a much faster pace than trains.
