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.
