Christmas is approaching at a rate of knotts and you’ll likely have noticed the logjams that have appeared at the UK’s ports over recent months. Due to the ongoing HGV driver shortage in the UK, haulage firms have increasingly found it difficult to get their clients’ goods where they need to be.

The government has implemented a series of measures to increase the number of available HGV drivers and so it would seem the problem is set to improve. However, companies still face the prospect of a huge surge in demand for delivery and a rush in container traffic in the lead up to December 25th.

This is something that requires a large-scale, reliable haulage network to ensure everyone has what they need in time for Christmas morning. At Waller Transport, our national network of hauliers and ability to move containers from any port means that we’re very well placed to handle this demand.
Container Tracking - Waller Transport Services

Time critical team

Our extensive network of haulage partners along with our dedicated Vehicles allows us to move any type of cargo to or from any European location and we’ve got a proven track record for stepping in to save the day. During the pandemic, our relationships with the regional distribution centres and experience with large-scale operators like Tescos, Sainsbury’s and more stood us in very good stead to keep the wheels of commerce moving.

While many containers are left standing by other haulage operators, we are able to use our network to move a wide range of cargo types to include retail and supply chain cargo, as well as raw materials, waste, steel and timber. It’s our flexibility and ability to move decisively at a moment’s notice that sets us apart from our competition.

Maximising Every Square Inch of Lorry Capacity

With offices in Hull, Ipswich, Liverpool, Hull and European Transport division, we have the kind of reach that allows us to get things done when others can’t and our return loads policy means that we always make the absolute most out of every journey, with unladen trips being rare, rather than the norm.

This time of the year also represents a particularly fruitful opportunity for owner drivers and HGV subcontractors to maximise their earnings, so if that describes yourself and you’d like to know more about joining the Waller Transport family during this busy time, then please do get in touch.
