A happy Christmas for automotive manufacturer

A happy Christmas for automotive manufacturer

The Challenge: Christmas shutdown

Towards the end of December a major automotive manufacturer found their new-year production plan short of essential parts. With their regular transport provider closed for the Christmas holidays and unable to collect the extra stock.

The Solution: Delivering 365 days a year

At very short notice, NEXTDAY FREIGHT sourced six artic trucks and trailers to collect from the Czech Republic on 28 December for direct delivery into the UK plant on 2 January

While all trucks were GPS tracked from collection through to delivery, their journey was planned around the European holiday driving bans to ensure arrival for the start of new-year production. NEXTDAY FREIGHT are available 365 days a year so were able to send regular updates to the customer throughout the holiday. Happily, production was maintained into the new-year.

Santa may have finished his deliveries but you can be sure NEXTDAY FREIGHT are available every day of the year to collect or deliver and to keep you updated by any means necessary.

We use NEXTDAY FREIGHT frequently for dedicated vehicles to Frankfurt and we have very rarely had any issues. Any occasion where there has been a delay has been communicated to us immediately and we’ve been kept up to date all through until delivery. Everyone is very helpful and professional on email and on telephone. I would definitely recommend NEXTDAY FREIGHT.
