A dedicated overnight service

This leading automotive client requires daily overnight trunking between its UK and central European distribution centres. We run dedicated nightly trailers in each direction providing them with a fast and reliable service.

These trucks use Eurotunnel to keep transit times under 10 hours each way, only stopping for the Eurotunnel journey, which corresponds to the drivers break.

ccfreight-truck-newsDuring the summer of 2015 the severe delays at the Channel crossing left these trailers vulnerable to attack by migrants in the Calais area and was such a concern for our customer that they requested a switch to secure box trailers as soon as possible. This was achieved immediately by hiring the appropriate equipment, with new leased trailers following later. As our contract with the client had a fixed duration with potential review we arranged these trailer leases to coincide with the review points in the contract with our customer, making things simple and hassle-free for them.

With three contract renewals for this customer already under our belt we hope that our flexibility and high service levels will result in our relationship continuing for many years to come.
