Coordinating multiple-transport shipments can be both complicated and time consuming. At C4 Logistics we know that our customers’ time is valuable, therefore we offer a bespoke door-to-door service to take the stress out of shipping.
C4 UK recently provided an excellent example of a door-to-door service. Operations staff were contacted by a customer requiring an urgent hand-carry service for a high value package. The package was to be shipped from the USA to the UK, making it a complex multi-component transit. Collection, air transportation, customs clearance and final delivery all needed to be coordinated individually by operations staff.
C4 UK initially contracted a dedicated courier to collect the parcel from York in the USA. The courier accompanied the parcel to Philadelphia International airport and onto the plane as hand-carry luggage. During transit to London Heathrow, an appointed customs officer was organised to meet the courier at the terminal upon arrival. The officer provided the necessary paperwork, ensuring a rapid transition through customs. Once cleared of customs, the shipment was passed to a second contracted driver who was immediately dispatched to complete the shipment to Pickering in the UK.
The complete shipment took less than 24hrs with seamless transitions. Regular updates from the C4Sight app provided the customer with extra peace of mind, allowing them to track their package throughout the transit.
At C4 Logistics we can offer the whole package from collection to delivery, regardless of the complexity of the transit. When a shipment requires a multi-stage operation, our highly skilled staff will organise each component of the journey to ensure seamless transportation.
