Portico launches haulage service to move project cargo across UK’s roads
International cargo operator Portico has expanded its reach beyond the port and to the UK’s road network by launching its own haulage service. The company has secured eight HGVs, complete with a wide range of trailers, ready to transport containers, breakbulk and project cargo from any port to destinations across the country.
Commenting on the launch, Mark Searle, Portico’s transport manager said, “We know customers are looking for an efficient and direct way to get their goods off ships, on the road and to their destination, so as an international cargo operator it makes sense that with our expertise in the logistics and freight industry we’re able to provide this haulage service.
“Keeping supermarket shelves stocked, warehouses full and developments on track is critical to the UK economy, so we can play our role by keeping goods moving around the country.
“All our vehicles meet Euro 6 emissions standards, which means they’re compatible with driving in ultra low emission and clean air zones,” concludes Searle.
The vehicles are equipped with live tracking data and electronic proof of delivery systems, keeping customers updated on their journey.
Portico is responsible for managing global goods, and shortsea services, which means they are specialists in freight forwarding and customs clearance to make sure sure goods are delivered safely and securely, without delay.
