DSV Road has extended the reach of its popular next day service with the launch of a daily double manned service from its Northern Hub in Wythenshawe, Manchester to its Northern European hub in Waddinxveen, The Netherlands.
The extension of this service was demand driven by customers who operate between the two countries, who need to move groupage and part loads of general cargo quickly and reliably, with collection and shipment on the same day. This compliments the daily unaccompanied and driver accompanied full load services available.
The double manned approach offers many benefits for the customer. The DSV service departs at 21:00 from both hubs, ensuring shipment of same day collections within both geographic areas. Also, with no driver rest time required and therefore less stopping time, the service is faster and can offer a higher level of protection and security. With less opportunity and with two pairs of eyes, the double manned approach can help to and from Holland to prevent clandestines gaining access to the lorry and causing any damage to the load.
David Penticost, DSV’s Divisional General Manager, Europe North commented:
“At DSV, we’re continuously looking at innovative solutions to offer customers a full range of reliable, quick and cost effective services that meet their ever changing needs.
"As this service is fulfilled through our own network and our own resource, we can assure customers that the service they are buying is not only meeting the global DSV levels of security and reliability, but also that we can offer this service at the most competitive price.
"The launch of our double manned service out of the Manchester hub has already proven to be very popular and we are backing the service with more resource to ensure all customer demand is met.”
Jesper Hansen, Managing Director for DSV Road commented on the launch
"I am delighted that our new doubled manned service to and from Holland will greatly benefit the British export and import industry. With our network of own offices and operation in more than 70 countries, we are able to develop and deliver quality transport and logistic solutions to our valued customers. This doubled manned service is a great example of the work we do and our collaboration across countries"
