Even though, at the time of writing, it’s only the beginning of June, now is the best time to consider your summer transport needs. Do you need temperature-controlled logistics? Does your current haulier have enough availability to cover all your delivery needs? 

Last year, when Britain had an extremely hot summer, many businesses had trouble sourcing temperature-controlled transportation at a sensible price. Companies shipping items such as food or ingredients, pharmaceuticals, and life sciences, or even flowers and plants were stuck because the rising temperatures hurt the quality of their goods. 

It may be too early to tell what the UK weather will be like this year, but it’s never too early to plan your summer logistics needs.  

We offer temperature-controlled logistics across the UK

Temperature-controlled transport is essential for regulating the temperature of many perishable and non-perishable goods. Our UK-based fleet of vehicles allows us to offer chilled or frozen courier services across the UK, and into Europe. Regardless of whether you need to ship one pallet or a full container load, our temperature-controlled logistics offer fast, reliable and time-sensitive shipments.  

Our time-sensitive haulage and express logistics services allow us to provide services on the same day. What’s more, thanks to today’s technical infrastructure, you can use tracking software to monitor the temperature of your goods throughout each stage of the journey.  

Transporting chilled goods across Europe 

Through our European network, we can ship your chilled and frozen goods anywhere in Europe. As part of our international shipping services, we help with all the paperwork for customs and security checks. We can also work with you to provide international road haulage services and combine sea freight or air freight if needed. 

Book your temperature-controlled transport early to guarantee shipping 

Last year, many companies were caught off guard because they hadn’t thought about how a heatwave would affect their goods. If you need a delivery at a certain time, you must book your shipment as soon as possible to make sure your delivery time is guaranteed and affordable. 

Only a small number of temperature-controlled logistics vehicles are available in the UK. If you want to keep the quality of your products, we suggest booking early. In an ideal world, we recommend booking your transportation as soon as you can, but we understand early booking is not always possible. If you require a last-minute or rapid turnaround time, our express logistics services can make it happen.  

If you need something moved over a long distance, why not talk to our team about overnight storage? To ensure the maintenance of a consistent temperature, we can set up storage for both perishable and non-perishable items, as well as medicines and medical supplies. 

Even if you’re confident you have it covered, would it do any harm to get a second quote?
