Experienced


When choosing a manufacturing courier to support your organisation, it is essential that you select a courier with experience in delivering a premium manufacturing courier service. At Speedy Freight, our professional and highly experienced teams have a wealth of knowledge around industrial markets, with over 14 years’ experience in handling and delivering goods.

Just-in-Time supply chains play a significant role within modern manufacturing. Just-in-Time supply chains make sure that products are only produced when required, which eliminates the production of superfluous goods. Though this means that supply deliveries may be more frequent, this additionally means the cargo will be smaller. Cutting inventory and storage costs, Just-in-Time manufacturing may suit you. Speedy Freight are dedicated and experienced in any kind of supply chain, giving you confidence in your courier.

Reliable

In all industries, but particularly manufacturing, it is essential that a courier is reliable and trusted to deliver the goods you need, when you need them. A delay in your assembly line could have a disastrous knock-on effect impacting suppliers, retailers, and customers, as well as your own profit. Speedy Freight are committed to providing each of their clients 

with efficient and punctual deliveries, requiring route planning and preparation in order to offer the most efficient service. 

Businesses who partner with Speedy Freight can be confident that their freight will arrive on time and in perfect condition. Our five-star reviews speak of the service consistently provided by Speedy Freight as a dedicated manufacturing courier.

Dedicated

A dedicated manufacturing courier service is just as it sounds. At Speedy Freight, we are dedicated to our customers, providing an exclusive service for each of our clients individually. We only courier one client’s goods at a time, so each journey is purpose-planned for maximum efficiency when meeting your needs. In addition, we do not co-load – a common occurrence in courier services, where vehicles are loaded with goods from multiple clients. The risk in this method is delays in delivery or damage to your goods. With Speedy Freight’s dedicated delivery service, we’ll never risk your goods or your time. 

Flexible

Our diverse range of vehicles means Speedy Freight are able to be as flexible as you need, accommodating any and all types of cargo that you need transporting to assist your manufacturing business. For instance, if you require the transportation of a large or even abnormal load, Speedy Freight’s access to a fleet of over 4,000 vehicles means that we’re guaranteed to find a vehicle to suit a bigger cargo. Our Artic Truck is capable of handling loads up to 24,000kg and 2.7 metres high, whilst our 18-Tonne Truck can handle 9,000 kilograms of weight: perfect for those larger loads. Flatbed services can assist in irregularly-sized, bulky or difficult loads.

If your item isn’t quite as hefty, we’re still able to assist: our Luton Vans and Small Vans are ideal for a smaller transport need. Whatever size you choose, we’ll still aim to be there within an hour of you making the booking.
