Customers to be providedm with exclusive high value delivery service throughout Europe
Geodis Calberson has announced the launch from February of its new premium market leading distribution product called EUROTOP – offering even more reliability and flexibility to customers.
The new high value delivery service is available from the UK to key destinations including Austria, Benelux, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Portugal.
The innovative new service offers the same main features as the established Top 48 service but now offers delivery to specific countries within 48 – 96 hours.
EUROTOP is underpinned by the strength and depth across Europe of Geodis Calberson – the leading distribution network in France. EUROTOP provides daily trunk connections and proactive monitoring of delivery through local network branch offices.
Customers enjoy the benefit of Geodis Calberson’s local service with a direct contact and a dedicated and proactive customer service team, backed by online and real time access to the status of shipments and POD documents with e-sp@ce.
EUROTOP’s reliable distribution of high end products will focus on finished consumer goods and will be available through on-line booking.
Daily departures and guaranteed network performance, reliable track and trace, POD online, KPI reports and enhanced liability are just some of the benefits to customers through EUROTOP which is available for consignments ranging from 1 to 1000kg.
EUROTOP has been tailored to deliver sensitive goods to a large distribution selling network. The product is particularly relevant to a diverse range of sectors including high-tech, automotive (spare parts), textiles, healthcare, cosmetic/perfumery and wine/spirits who have been attracted by EUROTOP’s quality service features including proactive customer service as well as the enhanced level of liability.
Jamie Cuthbert Managing Director of Geodis Calberson UK commented: "Our EUROTOP product offers a ground breaking new level of service to customers with high end products. EUROTOP clients can enjoy the comfort of absolute confidence, increasing credibility with their customers as well as time savings and reduced stockholding.
"The quality levels of EUROTOP and effectiveness of our distribution network can really make a difference to our client’s business operation and performance.
"There are a number of important value added benefits from our advanced IT systems with full track and trace and POD on line.
"Furthermore we are able to offer complete flexibility helping to create solutions rather than problems through a rigid network system.
"And for customers with larger network shipments our EUROFIRST product can be used hand in hand with EUROTOP – providing a real one stop shop service".
