Case Studies

Construction Logistics for London

The carpet and flooring manufacturer based in Yorkshire won a series of orders for construction and refurbishment projects in London.  Before being introduced to FreightArranger, carpet product would be moved to London to be delivered to site as one-off hgv movements.  Backloads were not available, so the manufacturer paid the round trip cost of the deliveries.

The FreightArranger solution allowed the manufacturer to access a one-way delivery service by rail and save substantial costs as a result.  FreightArranger provided containers, a collection service to the nearest rail freight terminal, and delivery of the carpets to site, providing a seamless door-door service.

"The ability to go online and find a low cost spot transport solution quickly and simply is ideal" said the Transport Manger.

The manufacturer saved £97 per full load delivery, 168 lorry miles per load and a CO2 saving of 324kgs per load.
