Davies Turner is upgrading its two-way overland trailer services between the UK and Poland by including its Bristol and Manchester hubs in its direct service network.
“In addition to our existing daily services from both Dartford and Birmingham, we now have scheduled direct departures from Bristol and Manchester as well,” says Danny Southby, Head of European Network.
Davies Turner, the UK’s largest independent freight forwarder, offers the services in partnership with Raben Group, the largest independent forwarder in Poland. The two companies also work together in the Dutch and German markets.
“Our services operate into Poznan where Raben has its headquarters. It has a significant distribution network in Poland with more than 30 depots and an incredibly robust and reliable collection and delivery service,” says Danny Southby. “It has grown phenomenally in the last 25 years and we have developed close working relationships at all levels.”
The new direct services have been added to handle the increased volumes of groupage cargo moving in both directions between the UK and Poland.
They will further boost the overall efficiency of the operation by bringing control of regional collections and deliveries closer to both the origin and the destination of consignments in the South-West and in the Northern U.K.
Polish consignments to and from Scotland and Ireland are also well supported via Davies Turner’s hubs in Glasgow and Dublin.
“Poland has been a very important import and export market for Davies Turner for many years and customer demand continues to grow,” explains Danny Southby. “We offer very competitive door to door transit times in both directions and full track and trace visibility throughout the journey.”
