French strike update

French media are predicting disruption from industrial strikes to last for at least three weeks! What does this mean for our customers…….?

In a recent statement, C4 Logistics Managing Director, Sebastien Barth said: “The industrial action in France is causing a lot of disruption to scheduled transports, especially those by road. At C4 Logistics we are supporting our customers by finding alternative transport methods, ensuring their critical shipments are completed on time and for a competitive price.”

Elaborating further, Sebastien went on to say: “Air transports are one of our specialties. We have an extremely competent team of air experts at C4 Air who can always find an alternative to road transports for a competitive price. For example, they recently organized an onboard carry for a customer whose scheduled transport was cancelled at the last minute because of the industrial action. The customer received a door-to-door service, with full tracking, faster than road transport and at a cost only slightly higher than the price of their scheduled shipment. I would encourage anyone who has a transport affected by the strikes to get in touch and we will find you a solution.”
