6,800 reasons to choose C4 Logistics

To most people the words “road freight” conjures up imagines of large HGVs or white vans. Many freight companies offer these to their customers as a default option, categorising shipments into “large” or “small.”

At C4 Logistics we know that our customers’ requirements are too diverse to be divided into two categories. With this in mind, we have access to over 6,800 different vehicles, allowing us to select the most suitable option for our client.

This was demonstrated perfectly during a recent shipment. A customer contacted C4 to transport two pallets from England to France. The pallets had a width of 222cm, making them too wide for a standard Luton van. Other freight companies would have immediately contracted the next standard size vehicle (a 7.5T lorry,) passing on the extra cost to the customer.

C4 Logistics used their expert knowledge of over 6,800 vehicles to source a specialist “extra-wide” Luton van, capable of accommodating the larger pallets. This not only reduced the potential cost to the customer, but also allowed the shipment to be delivered sooner.

At C4 Logistics we have the expertise to handle shipments of all shapes and sizes. Our ability to select the correct delivery method will always bring cost and time benefits to our customers.
