C4 Deliver, Whatever the Weather


The team at C4 Germany were contacted this week by a customer needing an urgent road delivery to Italy via Austria. Delivery was essential within 24hrs and the customer’s regular transport could not deliver in time. Heavy snowfall across Austria complicated things further. 90% of the roads were snow covered and only specialist 4×4 vehicles were permitted to travel. Many delivery companies had completely suspended operations in the area.

Rising to the challenge, C4 Germany utilised their specialist logistics knowledge to source a carrier with the appropriate 4×4 vehicle and negotiated a cost to the customer equivalent to a regular transport. With the forecast of more heavy snowfall, the customer was anxious to be updated on the progress of their shipment. The C4 Sight app allowed C4 operations staff to track the vehicle throughout the transit, updating the customer on its progress every 2hrs.

With extreme weather events increasing each year, road transports during winter months are becoming ever more challenging. Despite these obstacles, the team at C4 Logistics continue to deliver with the efficiency and great value for money our customers have come to expect.

C4 achieve IATA accreditation


C4 Logistics have once again achieved accreditation from the International Air Transport Association (IATA.)

The IATA represents the world’s major airlines, maintaining global standards for airline safety, security, efficiency and sustainability. To achieve IATA accreditation, companies must demonstrate a high level of competency in all areas of air transportation.

C4 France’s Clement Menard completed a comprehensive training course covering air shipment specifics including the transportation of dangerous goods. Clement demonstrated an exceptionally high standard of industry knowledge and successfully completed several assessment tasks to obtain his IATA diploma.

Country Manager for C4 France, Benoit Kermarrec, explains: “achieving accreditation with the IATA is essential to operations at C4. It is a requirement for all air shipment providers to meet the IATA standard to be able to access the 275 major airlines it represents. IATA accreditation is also fantastic evidence that the operations staff at C4 Logistics have the necessary expertise to meet all our customers’ air shipment needs.”
