France on strike! Who you gonna call?……C4 Logistics!

Did you know that C4 Air are “on call” to arrange air charters 24/7?

With the announcement of widespread worker strikes in France, customers have found themselves unable to rely on their scheduled transports. Facing flight cancellations, blockades on the roads and congestion at the ports, many customers have turned to C4 Air for help.

A valued customer found themselves facing a costly line-stoppage if they could not source an immediate transport from Italy to the UK. Road transportation was not an option with congestion at the ports causing delays, so C4 Air stepped in to arrange for an immediate air charter. However, when the shipment arrived for loading it was significantly larger than described and would not fit on the plane! Undeterred, the team at C4 Air arranged for the shipment to be re-packaged onto smaller pallets to avoid any delay to the customer. The goods arrived in the UK ahead of schedule, preventing the line stoppage for the client.

Our amazing team of air transport experts are specially trained to react proactively to changing conditions, ensuring we always deliver for our customers.
