Leading global logistics firm, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK has announced one of its latest services, which will run from Scotland, directly through to Germany by road freight. Systems Expedite is available from all the Scottish hubs on a twice-weekly basis to Hellmann in Hanover, Germany and will provide a consistent delivery system for all the German Market. Transit times will range from 72 to 96 hours.
Andy Lyall, operations manager for Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Scotland explained:
“Previously all our road freight contracts heading to Europe passed through the Hellmann UK headquarters at Fradley Park in Lichfield. However, we felt it was important and necessary to support the Scottish Market further with our System Expedite groupage product on the German Market. From Germany we will also link into Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Scandinavia. The System Expedite product is designed to take consignments of up to 10 Pallets on a cost effective and consistent delivery service.”
The new road freight service is available from Glasgow, Aberdeen and Prestwick and will be initially dispatched to Germany on a Tuesday and Friday, arriving at the Hellmann Hanover office within 72 hours. Andy Lyall continued:
“Our new, Pan European road freight package is designed to provide our customers with an efficient and reliable service. It ensures that any consignment will be dispatched from, and delivered to a Hellmann office, enabling the same high-standard of service to be provided throughout transit.”
The Systems Expedite routing is also an ideal preliminary service, as it can be linked to other European destinations within Hellmann's global network, as Andreas Lohmeier, director of sales and development at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK concluded:
“This latest addition to our UK network is intended to further improve the breadth and flexibility of our services to and from Europe, and alongside our new service, we hope to expand the choices available to our Scottish clients with regards to European routes.”
Hellmann Worldwide Logistics currently employs over 15,000 people worldwide, and operates from 341 cities across 141 countries. The company's UK operation boasts 10 individual offices throughout the country, including the three Scotland offices and the UK's head office in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
