CitySprint turns its sights on large and bulky items
Same-day courier company CitySprint has launched Freight Desk – a delivery service for oversized, heavy and difficult-to-handle items.
CitySprint vets it’s haulage partners to deliver items that cannot fit on a standard vehicle or need a tail lift when offloading facilities are not present.
Customers can book Freight Desk deliveries same-day through the service, although advance bookings are always encouraged.
CitySprint’s freight and haulage fleet currently includes the following vehicles:
- Artics (ideal for consistently large loads)
- 7.5 and 18 tonne trucks
- Luxon Box and Curtain Sider vans (available with or without tail lift)
- DGSA-qualified vehicles
In addition to these, the Freight Desk is also able to source both refrigerated and heated vehicles in a variety of sizes — from small vans to artic and ADR vehicles — which are in high demand.
Paul Gisbourne, CEO at CitySprint, commented: “We recognise that in today’s economy, speed, reliability and convenience are of the utmost importance to businesses in every industry, but that moving bigger items to support this can present logistical challenges.”
He continues: “Our new Freight Desk service is specifically tailored for the transportation of large and bulky items over 100kg and is a great addition to our current offer for our customers. Our nationwide local network means we can offer real agility, speed and flexibility to customers with ad hoc and ongoing haulage needs — both across the UK but also to countries within the EU.”
