Our Ashford depot is perfectly situated to intercept freight from vehicles arriving from Mainland Europe - which is advantageous to many of our just in time customers, for a variety of reasons:
Delays crossing the Channel can result in drivers' hours problems meaning delivery deadlines are compromised.
Freight that is already in transit on 'standard transport' can become time critical requiring it to be intercepted to achieve a faster delivery. We can locate and tranship specific loads or just the urgent parts numbers required. To prevent line stoppages.
Changes in customers' requirements in transit can mean a variety of issues from access restrictions for trailers, requiring goods to be changed to a smaller truck for delivery. Changes in unloading requirements may mean a tail-lift is required.
