Differences between haulage and freight transportation in the UK

Haulage is the transport of goods on land, such as via roads and railways, typically using trucks and vans, but also motorcycles and bicycles for smaller items. Legally, haulage is governed by regulations related to road safety, vehicle standards, and transport licensing within a country.

Freight encompasses the movement of goods across international borders, whether by sea, air, or land. It deals with a broader range of logistics for overseas shipments and is subject to international trade laws, customs regulations, and treaties for cross-border goods movement.

The legal distinction between haulage and freight highlights their operational scope (domestic vs. international) and the different regulatory frameworks each falls under.
