Davies Turner partners with Raben to boost Dutch freight services

Davies Turner, the UK's leading independent freight forwarder, is supporting British export efforts to the Netherlands with an enhanced daily trailer groupage service to and from the country.

With a departure at 14.00 hrs from Davies Turner¹s Dartford depot, UK exporters can expect next day distribution of their consignments throughout Holland. The return service leaves the Dutch hub in Oss at 18:00 daily. On the export leg, direct departures are also offered from several of Davies Turner¹s regional logistics hubs in the UK.

According to Philip Stephenson, chairman of the Davies Turner Group, the new service is a collaboration with Raben, a well-established partner and could not have come at a better time for exporters and importers.

Mr Stephenson says:

"We already collaborate with the Raben Group in Germany and Poland and have decided to extend our co-operation with the company as our partner in the Netherlands where it still has its original H.Q.

"The advantageous later departure of our new service from Dartford will still include distribution from our partner¹s main depot throughout Holland the next day. This is perfect for our customers who wish to deliver to this vibrant freight market which is also the gateway to North-West Europe and beyond.

"There is also the opportunity to pick up three daily feeders to Moenchengladbach, which is just 1.5 hours away.

"Working directly with Raben in the Netherlands means that we will have a daily two-way service, with full tracking information. Quality and visibility, at competitive costs, is essential for clients wishing to access the Netherlands efficiently and in a timely manner."

Raben will operate the line-haul with trailers based at its depot in Oss, the Netherlands. Dutch distribution is split into 10 zones with a fixed, daily import departure and with an arrival time to connect with daytime feeders.

Davies Turner plc, the UK's leading independent freight forwarding and logistics group, has an excellent network of branches throughout the UK supporting regional hubs serving Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland, all connected to Davies Turner¹s Dartford depot which remains the gateway to continental Europe.
