More trucks to the Benelux

[ January 30, 2013   //   ]

Twente Express has made a £500,000 investment in additional trucks and trailers. The Brownhills, West Midlands-based company operates daily departures between the UK and the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, specialising in the express delivery of parcels, pallets, part and full trailer loads.

Following a 16% increase in revenues in 2012, Twente is buying double deck mega trailers and low ride tractors units

With security in mind, solid box trailers have been chosen as opposed to curtain siders and all trailers have been fitted with the latest GPS tracking technology that incorporates computerised rear door locking mechanisms.
The new trailers can also safely double stack palletised freight, which will underpin a new pricing structure for 2013. A new ‘pallet tariff’ is also proving to be a very competitive alternative to customers who regularly ship quarter, half and full palletised shipments.

Managing director Trevor Paul said: “We are proud of the reputation we have built for otwente image_2r strict in house controls and the way in which we monitor our day to day operations. It is for this reason that we continue to invest in the company and have avoided the lower cost alternative of using cheaper Eastern European hauliers to move our customers’ consignments across the Channel.”
