Loading units

Many different units of measurement are used in road transport. Lorry requirements are set by international regulations that determine the weight limit and dimensions of lorries used to transport goods.

Units of measurement per lorry:

  • Weight of the goods up to 24 tonnes
  • Cargo volume from 85 to 112 m3
  • Loading surface up to 13.6 ldm (loading metres)
  • Capacity up to 33 EUR-pallets

Internal dimensions of a typical semi-trailer: 13.6 m (length) x 2.40 (width) x 2.65 (height)

1 EUR-pallet: 1,200 x 800 mm
1 FIN-pallet: 1,200 x 1,000 mm

For the transport of less-than-truckloads, the transport price is calculated according to the largest indicator of the weight or volume of the goods. 1 cbm (cubic metre) = 333 kg, 1 ldm (loading metre) = 1,850 kg, 1 EUR-pallet = 0.4 ldm = 740 kg, 1 FIN-pallet = 0.5 ldm = 925 kg

Frequently Asked Questions

Here you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions about freight forwarding and international road transport.

If you cannot find an answer to your question, please feel free to contact us.
1Does Forega Logistics offer cargo insurance?
Forega Logistics' cargo protection offers almost all types of cargo protection against accidents, mishandling and other hazards that can lead to damage or loss of cargo. Please contact us for a quotation on cargo protection.
2What are dangerous goods?
Dangerous or hazardous goods are objects or substances that may pose a risk to health, safety or the environment, especially if they are not properly handled and packaged. A classic example is lithium batteries, which can easily overheat and catch fire under certain conditions.
3Are my goods classified as dangerous goods?
Dangerous goods can be solids, liquids or gases. The United Nations (UN) has established a universal system for the classification, packaging, labelling and marking of dangerous goods to facilitate their safe transport. Here you can find out about all nine dangerous goods classes.
4What should I know about a delayed shipment?
The delay of goods has always been a problem in transport. When the carrier or freight forwarder enters into a transport contract with the customer, the transport time stated in the quotation means the time spent on transport under normal conditions and does not guarantee that the goods will arrive at their destination within a certain time. It is important that the customer takes into account the various circumstances when ordering transport and takes its time. It is extremely important that the customer always informs when ordering transport if the goods are time-sensitive.
5What are the general terms and conditions for road freight transport?
You can read the general terms and conditions of road freight transport on the website of the Estonian Logistics & Freight Forwarding Association:
6Which goods are best suited for the transport of full truckloads?
The transport of full truckloads is usually suitable for goods that occur in large quantities, which require special handling and attention, or for valuables that are not to be transported together with other goods. For the transport of perishable, dangerous and oversized goods, we recommend full truckloads.
7To which countries does Forega Logistics offer transport services?
We operate mainly in Europe, connecting more than 40 countries through road transport with a complete transport network. We organise freight transport throughout Europe. Our main destinations are Germany, Benelux, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Please send a request to get a quotation.
8What is the transport of full truckloads (FTL)?
FTL, i.e. full truckload, is a full load transportation service, the essence of which is that the entire trailer or container is filled with only one and the same cargo on the entire route. In addition, full truckload services are characterised by safety and reliability, because when the lorry is parked, the cargo is not brought to the warehouse.
