Road freight is a flexible and economical choice for your pallet collection and delivery.
International businesses and individuals use road freight services to transport goods using various vehicles. Long-haul deliveries are transported by lorry, but small vans usually cover short distances. The type of vehicle also depends on the weight and volume of a shipment, and road freight offers a lot of flexibility in the type of goods you can send.
Road services are ideal for bulk consignments or transporting perishable goods within the UK and Europe. It offers more flexibility on Europe's extensive road networks and crossing international borders is usually quick and efficient. Next-day delivery is a viable option in many parts of the UK with road freight transport.
