Our client is one of the UK’s largest articulated lorry and vehicle bodywork manufacturers.
Their product range includes box vans, temperature-controlled trailers, flatbeds, and curtain siders. As a leading manufacturer of specialist vehicles, their clients include major retailers across the UK and Europe who rely on their tailored expertise to transport their goods from one end of the country to the other.
Our client contacted our Speedy Freight Stoke team to deliver parts for artics, including frames for the trailer, rear doors, tail lifts and general spares and parts, loaded onto pallets.
To accommodate for the volume and size of shipments, we've booked vehicles of all sizes for our client, from small vans all the way up to artics, and occasionally flatbed vehicles.
Due to the time-sensitive nature of the deliveries, as they operate on a tight manufacturing schedule, they’ve exclusively used our same day delivery service to get their parts quickly so they can stay on track.
Our Speedy Freight Stoke team has been there for our client whenever they need a same day delivery, whether it’s booked ahead or comes in as a last-minute urgent request.
As we often deliver parts for artics, it means that some parts are the same size as the delivery vehicle that we would generally use to transport these types of large consignments. Therefore, it can be difficult to find vehicles capable of carrying the size of their consignments, as the external measurements of the parts are larger than the vehicle’s internal measurements.
We’ve managed this challenge thanks to our access to over 4,000 specialist vehicles, which allowed us to organise a flatbed capable of having a slight overhang to transport our client’s consignments safely and securely.
With a little bit of out of the box thinking, our Speedy Freight Stoke team have since managed one successful delivery after another. Our on-demand vehicle access, including the specialist vehicles needed for this client, has led us to quickly adapt to their changing transport needs and offer a dedicated and bespoke service.
Our team has developed a strong relationship with our client. Our respective expertise has led us to work closely and effectively together to get exactly what they need for their automotive manufacturing facilities across the UK.
Due to the nature of what they do, they’re a very straight forward customer to deal with, as they always know exactly what size vehicle they require as they are very familiar with vehicle dimensions!
However, our knowledgeable teams are always ready to assist in finding the best delivery vehicle for your consignments, when you’re not sure what type or size of vehicle you will need.
Our client has expressed satisfaction with the speed of our deliveries, and they have gone on to book jobs on a regular basis and have come to know the Speedy Freight brand as one to trust with urgent deliveries of vehicle parts, as an experienced automotive manufacturing courier.
