What is a Carrier?

The term carrier refers to a company or individual that provides transportation services for moving goods and cargo via trucks from one location to another. Carriers play a crucial role in the supply chain, as they are responsible for the physical movement of freight, ensuring it reaches its intended destination safely and efficiently. 

Some carriers specialize in transporting specific types of goods. For example, special licensing and permits are required to carry items classified as hazardous materials.
