2015 is now well under way and we have seen higher than expected car volumes in
February and March. Full marks to the Operations Teams in coping with the
increased volumes.
One of the priorities we have for the remainder of the year is to make further
significant inroads into the Van Market. Vans are getting wider and longer to meet
the payload expectations of the end user. This provides a significant challenge to
the normal methods of transporting these vehicles at the start or end of their life.
The diversity and range of product continues to increase to match the end users
increasing demands on this type of equipment. Squeezing large vans onto
transporters which have been purpose built for cars is becoming increasingly
difficult leading to inefficiencies in both car and van distribution. Due to our
innovative approach to problem solving we are now the only high volume logistics
operator in the UK to have designed and purpose built a range of transporters to
optimise and focus on Vans, Chassis Cabs and Pick-Ups. From extended length
articulated trailers to multi-deck/multi-fuel drawbar transporters no van is too
large or too awkward for us to move safely and efficiently.
We are undertaking a strong sales push in the Van Market during the rest of this
year and by having the right type of equipment allows us to offer the
Manufacturers a solution no other carriers can.
