    Shipping cargo to the Northeast can involve some challenges! See in our text how to deal with obstacles and ensure the success of the operation.

    Main challenges in cargo transportation in the Northeast region

    Even though it has a potentially huge market, the region presents some challenges for those who want to distribute their products in the 9 states.

    The main challenges in cargo transportation in the Northeast region are:

    Poor quality of roads

    Bad asphalt or dirt roads can lead to delays, wear and tear, or even increase the chances of accidents.

    Here it is worth remembering that even where conditions are not the best, vehicle transport to the Northeast must be done by specialized companies, because even in this scenario they still have mechanisms to carry out the trips; thing that vehicle owners with their automobiles could not achieve.

    The lack of adequate signage can also make transportation difficult.

    Lack of security

    On the BR-110 and BR-423 highways, which connect the cities of Santana (Bahia) to Garanhuns (Pernambuco), robbery attempts are regularly registered.

    There are gangs that intercept moving trucks.

    Between Feira de Santana (Bahia) and Aracaju (Sergipe), on the BR-101, most of the actions take place in vehicles stopped overnight.

    The BR-116, which connects the state of Bahia to Pernambuco, is the one that has had the most incidents in recent years and, therefore, is of great concern to drivers who transport cargo in the region.
