3 Types of Carriers in Logistics:
Common carriers are the carriers who serve freight shipping according to general requirements.
Contract carriers, however, work with selected shippers with whom they sign agreements.
There is also a difference between freight rates since common carriers have limited capacity to set a rate, while contract carriers organize the rate with a shipper through the contract.
Private carriers haul freight on the shipper’s vehicle and don’t demand additional fees.For-hire carriers can move general freight and therefore carry additional charges for the service.
Private transportation guides a firm that owns the vehicles used to transport its goods. A private carrier does not haul goods as its primary business and, thus, does not seek to transport the interests of other companies as a common carrier does.
