Since Zambia is a landlocked country, it depends heavily on road transport companies for the haulage of goods and supplies into Zambia and across Zambia. However sometimes air cargo, rail transport and (rarely) boats are used. Aviation insurance and marine insurance cover losses when air or lake transportation is used.
The mode of tranportation depends on the type of goods being transported and the distance to be travelled - light commercial vehicles, buses, trailers for trucks, or warehouse vehicles. Specialist transport includes animal transport, rescue and fire fighting vehicles, and secured transport for high value items.
In the import and export business, freight and forwarding, and haulage and logistics are essential transport services. Where large fleets of vehicles are owned by a company, fleet management, and vehicle security and tracking, become necessary to help keep control of these expensive assets.
Some companies in Zambia help with vehicle registration and compliance, while others offer vehicle storage, for those times when a vehicle is out of use for a tme.
