DSV Road has launched an express road service between the UK and Scandinavia for shippers with more time-sensitive cargo. The product, called DSV Daily Flyer, will eventually be rolled out across Europe.
DSV Daily Flyer offers same day departures from the UK to Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway for cargo booked before 10am, with guaranteed transit times and real-time PODs.
"More and more of our customers are seeking the faster transit times which this service offers," says DSV Road UK Northern European Director Karl Timmis. "We have offices in all the main UK and Scandinavian centers, so the door to door service, is completely run within our own terminals and IT systems."
The service, operated by vehicles with two drivers, will reduce transit times between the UK and Scandinavia by between 24 and 48 hours compared to the standard service.
"This is a premium product and, while we know that our customers have a keen eye on costs, we also believe there is a demand for a faster service where speed to market is paramount. DSV Daily Flyer offers a quality service, with complete transit visibility and real-time PODs, at a competitive rate," says Mr Timmis.
DSV Daily Flyer has set rates for consignments up to 1,000kg for postcode zones in each of the Scandinavian countries. Prices for consignments above 1000kg are available upon request.
DSV Road, the third largest logistics provider in Europe, operates the full range of services throughout Europe, working closely with customers to ensure they get exactly the service they need. Last year it launched its award-winning DSV Daily Pallet, offering daily pick-ups throughout Europe, and also enhanced it Quote & Book facility.
