In India, various vehicles are used for road freight, including trucks, lorries, trailers, and container carriers. The choice of vehicle depends on the cargo type and quantity.

The permissible weight and size of road freight vehicles are regulated by Indian authorities. Typically, the maximum legal load capacity for trucks is around 20-25 tons, and length restrictions may apply.

Road freight is flexible, offering door-to-door service. It is well-suited for short to medium-distance transportation within India and can accommodate a wide range of cargo types.

The cost of road freight depends on factors such as distance, weight, vehicle type, fuel prices, toll charges, and any additional services required.
