Ferrymasters to offer express option

[ November 8, 2017   //   ]

European trailer operator P&O Ferrymasters has launched an express option managed from its Amsterdam office. Carrying anything from a parcel to full loads, it uses a vehicle fleet ranging from small pick-up vans to full trailers – with single or double drivers – and includes units equipped for temperature-controlled and ADR dangerous goods.

P&O Ferry masters has established contacts with a string of express partners in Europe and the first shipments have already been booked. In addition, the company’s own dedicated Amsterdam fleet is on hand to underpin services where needed.

Special focus is being given to critical spare parts fulfilment for the automotive industry and other manufacturers to prevent production line stoppages, but the new service will cater for all market sectors.

Amsterdam general manager Marcel Manshanden said: “We strongly believe there is a place for us in this special area of business. More of our customers need express support to meet the pace of consumer demand.  Lead times and product availability are increasingly critical, so bringing our bespoke, job-specific approach to the express sector will enhance our service options when ultra-fast solutions, quotations and delivery are paramount.”
