Reduce transit costs with Logistics UK’s new Freight Ferry Service
Monday 20 November 2023
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. And as Al Richardson, Head of Membership at Logistics UK explains, the partnership will provide genuine benefits for member businesses:
“Our new service will take advantage of Freightlink’s expertise to provide members with a seamless experience every time they book a journey,” he says. “The combined reputation of both organisations means we are able to offer genuine reductions and first-class customer support, seven days a week.
“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.”
Managing Director of Freightlink, Alex McDonald says: “We are delighted to be partnering with Logistics UK to provide this new solution to their membership. 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.”
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. To find out more, members should visit www.logistics.org.uk/freightferry
