Reduce transit costs with Logistics UK's new freight ferry service

Shipping goods by ferry can add cost and administrative delays to freight movements, due to fluctuations in pricing and space availability.

To help ensure that its members can achieve the very best possible solution for ferry movements, Logistics UK is delighted to launch a new partnership with ferry experts Freightlink: the Logistics UK Freight Ferry Service.

“Working with Freightlink, experts in ferry and tunnel bookings, the new Logistics UK service will enable members to obtain the best possible value for their freight movements with discounts offered in addition to the company’s existing competitive pricing,” says Al Richardson, Head of Membership at Logistics UK.

“Our new service will take advantage of Freightlink’s expertise to provide members with a seamless experience every time they book a journey.

“The combined reputation of both organisations means we are able to offer genuine reductions and first-class customer support, seven days a week,” Richardson says.

All freight vehicles operated by members are eligible to use the service, from smaller vans to HGVs.

“With so much volatility in the economy, the new service – which links the extensive knowledge of the team at Freightlink with the size and scale of Logistics UK – will ensure that our members have access to capacity across the entire European ferry network and can keep costs under control while continuing to deliver for customers,” adds Richardson.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Logistics UK to provide this new solution to their membership,” says Alex McDonald, Managing Director of Freightlink.

“Users of this service will experience unparalleled levels of customer care and industry expertise. We are proud to share this with the Logistics UK members,” says McDonald.

The new Logistics UK Freight Ferry Service, powered by Freightlink, will offer discounts on all journeys to and from Great Britain, including travel to Northern and the Republic of Ireland and cross-Channel routes.

In Brief

Fuel retailers could be fined as new powers given to the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)

The CMA is set to become the body responsible for monitoring road fuel prices and reporting any sign of malpractice to the government. This move follows a report from the CMA that identified that some supermarkets had failed to pass on savings in oil prices. 

Claire Coutinho, the UK’s Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, has cautioned retailers that she will not hesitate to hold them to account if there is any evidence of unfair pricing.
