Many customers believe that time-critical freight must always come at a premium cost. This is not the case!

At C4 Logistics we ensure that our customers never pay unnecessary costs.

C4 Logistics recently saved a customer over 50% on their predicted transport cost. The customer needed to move a shipment from France to England via road freight. The cargo was of a considerable size. Loading was to be completed via a crane, dictating the need for an open topped vehicle.

Many similar time-critical freight companies would immediately contract a sliding-roof HGV, the default option for this cargo.

Instead, C4 Logistics used their extensive experience of road freight vehicles to suggest a more cost-effective alternative.

A Luton van with a detachable tarpaulin roof was deployed and the cargo shipped successfully. This vehicle was also faster, allowing the transit time to be reduced and the critical shipment to be delivered 14hrs ahead of schedule.

Our customer benefited from a saving of 50% on their transport costs and received their shipment sooner than anticipated.

At C4 Logistics our team will always research every possible avenue to provide bespoke freight solutions at the lowest possible cost. Our extensive experience allows us to stay agile in our thinking, always providing the best solution for our customers.
