As Dudley said, Haulage contractor is standard British-English for firms (and 
individuals) who own and operate Heavy Goods Vehicles (over 3.5 t IIRC) to 
transport a whole range of loads. As others have said logistics is about the 
whole chain of processes rather than specifically individual movements.

A more generic term might be road freight.

I think it is something commonly described as a logistics company. 


Courrier just delivers a package for a to b for a fee, like a local or

maybe

logistics=Courrier
logistics=Trucking  to pick up the remainder, as there are a myriad of special 
delivery places - piano movers, livestock delivery, boat movers,  for example.

logistics would also cover the intermodal companies - moving shipping

logistics=warehouse [for the gigantic warehouses they use]

[Tagging] Truckage company

2014-10-09 Thread Andreas Labres
Hi!

Any suggestion how to tag a transport company (a company forwarding goods, don't
know how you call these guys from the Güterbeförderungsgewerbe like DPD etc.
in English)?

I mean these guys here (DPD depots in Austria):

The companies often refer to their sector as logistics, although I
think that's probably the marketing people trying to sound clever, and
that the people actually driving and loading the trucks will call it
transport.

Other possible descriptions would be:


“haulage” for large loads.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haulage

“courier” for smaller items. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courier
